Unhappy Door Lock Spinning

Hi I have 99 Kangoo and cannot lock or open any doors as the key just rotates around and around in the lock.
Can anyone help?
I have tried removing the door lock but had difficulty getting it out from the handle too.

Sounds like something has come adrift at the back of the key barrel or the linkage has come off - have you tried taking out the entire door handle

How come all doors have this fault?
Maybe some1 tried to force them open?
Sounds like an issue for police and a locksmith

I could be wrong, but if it's anything like the Laguna, the locks are meant to spin around. Its a safety feature of sorts which prevents the lock from breaking or sokmething if someone tries to foce it open.

It shouldn't spin freely though - there should be some resistence. Try turning the key one way, then the other and it should open the lock
