If I have time this weekend, I'd like to finally crack open my passenger-side door and try to figure out why I can no longer unlock it from the outside with the key. It will lock fine (pointless), but it just stops short of unlocking. It almost feels like the key will bend or break outright before going far enough. I have even tried with the original key I use as a template for duplicates, but with no luck. I suspect I will have to remove the entire door latch assembly for cleaning, but is there anything else to suspect or look our for? I do have a bag of rod clips (if I can find them); I just hope they work for all the rods I'll be messing with.
