Re: Lock barrel removal espace

Open drivers door, look down the side where the door locking mechanism is.
Now just above this, level with your lock barrel, you will find a small hole.
Could be covered with a plastic grommet .
In there, is a bolt , undo it slowly, at the same time pulling on the lock barrel.
The REASON, I say pull on the lock barrel, ......
If you undo the bolt to much, the lock barrel will come out, but the bolt will end up inside the door.
Then its a panel off job

I think, aesthetically, car design is so interesting - the dashboards, the steering wheels, and the beauty of the mechanics. I don't know how any of it works, I don't want to know,
