... not a lot of BTDT on the ignition & doors on an urq, but it is something 
that needs to be done on V8s due to a design problem in the unlock mechanism 
... I suspect the urq door handle might be similar in some respects ... I'd 
recommend that you remove the door handle and look for a clip on the inside 
that releases the cylinder.  Once the cylinder is out it is a fairly simple 
matter to transfer or change the fingers.

I do have BTDT on the gas cap ... and perhaps there is a way to remove the 
cylinder without destroying the old cap ... but that's what I had to do.  If 
you're talking about re-keying, I'd recommend that you just buy a new cap 
without the lock cylinder installed.
