How to repair or replace car door lock?

Lifetime of the car door lock depends on car operation conditions, and regularity of lubrication and cleaning of the assembly. If the car is frequently exposed to low temperature, this leads to freezing of the lock and its premature breakdown.

The component can be restored in case of soiling or jamming. Repair consists in cleaning and lubricating of the unit, as well as replacement of the defective lock cylinder which caused the defect. For cylinder replacement you need to demount the inner door cover and door handle together with lock linkage. Then, extract the lock after unscrewing its fasteners from the door. After that, disassembling of the unit is performed, the defective component is demounted, and a new one is installed.

If corrosion of the lock caused the defect, you need to replace the whole unit. Repair and replacement procedures require special equipment and skills, that is why it is recommended to entrust such work to car service station specialists.
