Can't get my key into the driver side lock

Hey thanks for the replies. I'll probably see if the locksmith can rebuild it'. I just need to get the window crank off and I just got the tool so I will see if that works. And so when I get the door panel off how do I fix the linkage to make sure the internal locking lever works? And most locksmiths say they won't do the Cars. Will they do it if I give it to them?

If the locksmiths won't work on a car lock, then giving them the tumbler won't change their minds.

Did you watch any of the videos? You can see how easy it is fer you to work on the tumbler yerself. If anything, you could just as easily swap out the passenger tumbler with the driver side tumbler.

Well the linkage works when I move the rod it just doesn't work on the outside lock because the tumbler is seized. And the inside locking mechanism doesn't have a long enough stroke

So I bought some of the pb dry graphite lubricant spray and as I went to take the tumbler apart I sprayed it and worked it a bit and it actually freed up. It still catches when unlocking it but I just cycle it back and forth once and then it goes. As far as the interior lock mechanism what is the best way to adjust that?

So I have just read that I should use brake cleaner and then the graphite. Should I re clean my lock since I had put wd40 and grease in already?

Update I went ahead and did this already to make sure the lock was clean.

Still trying to figure out the Best way to adjust the interior locking mechanism.

Bump looking how to fix the inside lock. I was told the it may be the plastic pieces that connect the two rods together. Where can I buy one of these?

Is this what I need?

Have you pulled the door panel yet to inspect the linkages?

Can't get my key into the driver side lock

Yes I did and when the lock button is flipped the rod doesn't travel far enough to to fully rotate the actual locking rod connected to door latch itself. The locking part itself won't actually fully rotate unless I take the rod connected to the latch and push it into its lock position. Then the interior lock lever will move to its final position. Is this a problem with the latch assembly or locking lever.

Basically to summarise the internal lock lever doesn't travel far enough.

So I just ended up bending the connecting rod to the latch and that took up the extra slack so the lever now locks. See thee after photo below

Maybe someone tried to slim jim the lock before and messed up the linkage?

BTW, the clear plastic that was over the door is both a vapor and noise barrier.

So you are saying I should replace it? I just had that window replaced and they may have cut it. What should I use to cover it? Anything special or Just visqueen?

And where does it go over or under the connecting rods?

Also I think the rod looked stock but the latch mechanism had a lot of play in it so I just took up that slack with the rod.
