Replacement Lock

Replacement Lock

Postby Wolphin [OP] » June 15th 2009, 3:55am

I locked myself out of my Astro today, when I was out in the mountians :banghead: (The sliding side door decided it wanted to lock, even though I wanted it unlocked!)

A kind person gave me a flathead screwdriver, with which I was able to smash and crack the rear door's lock enough to turn it without the key, to unlock the door - nobody had a coathanger to use to unlock my door :(

All in all, I need to find somewhere that would have the replacement lock, and what's the chances of getting it keyed to my existing keys?

Hi Wolphin

For a new lock, maybe try rockauto.com
For a used lock, try the auto wreckers

Either way, you will need to have it keyed by a locksmith or a dealership. I did that once, and I was lucky to have a coat hanger near by. I now have a back up key and I keep it in my wallet at all times, never happened since, but I'm ready if it does. Food for thought.:)

I hooked this thing called a "taplock" onto mine. I tap a code on the glass and it unlocks the doors. I put it on when I lived in south Florida because when I was diving I just locked everything up that I couldn't take underwater with me.
