Removing Trunk Key Cylinder Lock
« on: September 24, 2015, 02:58:29 PM »
I'm having hard time to disassembling the Key Cylinder out of the Trunk handle.
It would Be appreciated if some One assist an instruction.

Also, is it possible to reset Door & Trunk Cylinder to use a same one key.

Thanks

Yes, I have removed mine. 
Do you have the key?  If not, you will need to "pick the lock".
The point is this, you need to put the lock into the "LOCKED" position.  This is where the handle will rotate on the shaft. 
Once that is done, the entire lock assembly and square shaft will be able to be pushed out from the chrome handle.
I did not have a key, but I was able to get the 4 pins to align so that I could rotate the lock and then it easily pushed out.

I guess I got lucky.  I sat with it while watching TV and after about 10 minutes of running a paperclip wire over the pins, it suddenly moved/rotated.
Once I got it apart, I was able to use a blank key and cut my own notches so that the pins all line up.
I imagine a locksmith should have no problem at all with this fairly simple lock.
