Lock Cylinder removal

What is the correct tool to remove a lock cylinder?

With a thule rack there is a key that makes the cylinder pull out. Is there a similar tool for a door locks?

For the front doors? I disassembled the lock and the cylinder has a small spring loaded catch that releases it from a larger carrier. Tool used ... small screwdriver.

I'm guessing a Thule lock has an extra tumbler that can be released with a special key. You wouldn't want a special key to exist for your land rover ...

Having said that my new locks open with my old worn out key!

I don't lock my doors. Actually, I don't even know if they lock. I just fold my seats forward, and keep my dash open with exposed wires, so that people think it's already been broken into.

Generally me too, as a throwback from being a former soft-top Jeep owner, I'd rather they got in easier than cut open the top or broke a window. Costing me even more $$ and slowing them down by approximately nothing...

Changing lock cylinders on the front doors is really easy if you remove the door handle. The rear door is a little harder as you have to push a pin into a little hole and disengage the cylinder. No special tools required.

ITs easy, remove the handles, and you will see a small hole where you put a punch or small screw driver in the hole and push down a detent.... The lock will come right out...
