View Full Version : Driver's side lock cylinder just spinds (Post-Facelift)

I have an '01 with a broken drivers side door lock. It just spins, will not lock or unlock. It is my understanding this is a common problem which has one of two solutions, depending on the exact problem. Unfortunately, it didn't just come unclipped on my car.

I've done quite a bit of looking, and cannot find a how-to on removing the lock. I had the door card out today and was looking it over... I cannot figure out how to get the handle separated from the lock. I can't figure out how to get the lock itself out, either. Anyone have any idea how to do this?

Also, I was looking at this kit on ebay, and wondering if this would fix the issue, or if I need a new lock?

Thanks in advance.
