Key won't turn in door lock.
Well, since about 4 yrs, my remote entry had stopped working on the driver's side, and i never got it fixed. Probably the actuator.
Now, since a few months, i have had trouble getting the door to open with the key itself. It's really hard to turn, but will turn and unlock eventually. No problems opening the door from the inside.
Yesterday, the key would not turn AT ALL. No matter how hard i tried... it inserts easily without any problem, but not turn at all - not budging. I was afraid to exert too much pressure on it - I don't wanna break the damn key. Had to get in from the pass. side and open the door from inside...
The key is an original.
So do I need to replace the door lock?
or...is there an easy fix? Shall i spray some WD40 into the key-lock-cylinder thing and see what happens?
