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...
