Door Lock

My driver's side door lock appears to be loose. When I turn the key from the outside it is loose and the balck lock tab on the inside only moves up half way. Sometimes it locks other times it does not. Before I take this apart is this something that can be fixed or do I need a new lock?? It appears that to take it office I will need to remove the plastic door liner and there some bolts holding the lock thingy onto the door??

Okay so last weekend I took the door apart and it appears that the door lock and handle is a one piece unit. I found that you can buy replacements at AB, only they don't come with a lock. So my question now is, how do you ge the lock tumbler out of the old and put into the new?

No need to buy a new handle.
Lock comes apart if you remove screw from this piece. See photo.
The keys come with an aluminum plaque with a key code.
Or buy a new lock and take it to a locksmith. They'll match it to your key.

YOu can just take the tumbler out very easily if you change the handle as well.... the pic above is a SW door. Do you have a ST?

Mine is a ST. It looks like the lock core should come out somehow..

You put a key in the lock, and stick a paperclip or something else small down the tiny hole in the face. This releases a tiny little button at the back of the cylinder and releases it.

You just have to poke around in there to get it to release - not always super-easy for the same reason that locks get stiff - crap stuck in there.

When I took the door apart I squirted PB blaster all over the lock components to clean the mechanisim hoping that would help with the functioning of the lock. Hopefully that will loosen stuff up while I am in Vermont hunting. The lock will have to wait until I get back...

My lock malfunctioned once and the dealer said they had to replace the whole part because it was a sealed part...anyway, they replaced it and had it rekeyed. This was when I had the hardtop on. I guess since taking it off I've never used the locks again...best solution to never having them break again!

With a soft top I figure it's useless to even use the locks, it just invites people to cut thru the top...Good luck with the fix though!
