Driver's side door does not unlock with key, so I have to open passenger door and then open driver door from inside. If fiddle with key can lock the driver door from outside (and central locking works). Locksmith thinks barrel needs replacing which they say they'll do if bring in the lock...anyone had this problem or know how to remove the lock?...do I have to remove the inside door panel to get lock out?

Is there a Haynes manual or something for w reg Hiace as owner's manual doesn't cover it?

Any help appreciated. Cheers icon_smile.gif

Yep, you'll need to remove the inside door panel before you can get to the lock barrel. Remove the clip which holds it in place, and disconnect the linkage.

If you don't feel confident, then call a mobile locksmith who'll be able to do all the work at your vehicle. This may be a little more expensive than taking it to the Locksmith, however you need to weigh this up against the time it's going to take you to remove the barrel, take it to the Locksmith (will he do it there and then, or will you have to return), then bring it back and re-insert it.

That was some effort getting that lock out! As you said HandyHands, door panel had to be removed...they don't make it easy, do they! Got so far then...how do I get this window handle off? Took it to local garage who showed me there was clip keeping it in place! Stumped me. And have to take lots more off just to get to the lock!

Took lock to locksmith, who took it apart then discovered it was completely knackered...aparently some tealeaf looks to have stuck a screwdriver in it and b*ggered it right up - beyond repair. Ordered a new one and will refit. Interesting to see how it all fits together.

Thanks for the help icon_biggrin.gif

Make sure the locksmith keys the new barrel to your existing keys, otherwise you'll end up with a seperate key for that lock.

Have to say I'm suprised at them having to order the barrel - if they specialise in auto locksmithing, they should have the spares to re-key the barrel.

Let us know how you get on.

They're not auto locksmiths, but my local locksmiths who've been around for years and I trust them, which goes a long way. They would've fixed this one if the whole mechanism wasn't twisted. I tried getting a spare barrel from breakers, but none had any. I ordered it from Toyota dealer. Forgot to ask if I could even get one for same lock icon_redface.gif

Locksmiths say they'll change lock to fit my keys for 12, so may do that before fitting it in or just stick with the new key. No big deal, but suppose would be better.

Thanks for the advice icon_biggrin.gif

No probs.

The linkage on my driver door went a couple of weeks ago, and I just couldn't be bothered to take the panel off and reconnect, so I know what you mean about odd looks. Lucky my Vito has a dash mounted gearlever, otherwise I'd have got some REALLY odd looks icon_lol.gif I did the deed last weekend, so back to normal now.
