Thread: where can I get door cylider locks???

    Default where can I get door cylider locks???

    Hello All,

    My 84' westy needs new cyliner locks for all the doors including the hatch. The key works on the drivers side door but thats about it. Does anyone know if they can be rekeyed or does anyone know where I can get inexpensive replacement? FYI all handles are in working order so buying new handles would be a last resort. Any help is much appreciated.

    Take the cylinders out and try soaking them in brake cleaner for a while, than spray them with wd40.
    The tumblers get all gummed up and won't move. You can also take the tumblers out and clean them if you're careful and make sure they go back exactly
    the way they came apart. I've used both these methods with good results. If you have to take them out to change them,(if you can even get new ones)
    you might as well mess around with them, you got nothing to lose.
