Re: useless keyhole
Mine just did this. There is a lever in there attached to the key lock that
brakes. You need to get a new lever which requires a new lock barrel
because the design has changed. But, you can re-install the old tumblers so
no need to re-key. I bought the parts at the dealer and had a mechanic do
the work. Not too expensive...
