Sweet! and the door and, in my case, the trunk are pretty straightforward?

I wonder if I could attach the fuel door lock somehow to the glovebox! hmmm

Doors are pretty straight forward. The steps in the Hayne's manual are sufficient for removing them. The trunk was the only one I found troublesome.


the trunk lock cylinder is the larger one in the third row next to the keys.

The cylinder is part of a larger unit which includes the latch and bolted inside the rear of the trunk lid. Unbolt the entire unit and remove it. See the little protrusion off the right side of the cylinder in the above picture? There is a locking pin inside that, which will prevent you from removing the old lock cylinder from the larger unit. You need to file the top off of that protrusion on the OLD lock cylinder (using a hand file or a grinding wheel). You'll work it down till you have a little shaft appear and you can shake the pin out. The old cylinder will then twist off of the latch unit. Put the NEW lock cylinder in its place and turn it until the pin locks it into place. Reinstall the unit into your trunk.

glad to see its starting to work out. door and trunk should be straightforward as it will be the same as the hood latch. i believe the transpoder is really for ignition. key to a glove box? you may as well get a lock box instead haha

I got everything you see brand new including the key. They set the key to match for me. I got mine from a dealer in the uk as well. It cost me $100 bucks shipped.

Don't let that dissuade you from doing the trunk! I really is only a 5 minute job to rip out of the old locking pin once you know how its done

in the US, for the new Transit they are using that same European style key, and a friend at the dealer says they have to send of to the UK to cut them. The service is aparently quite pricey, and all they have to do is cut the key to the pre-existing code, so I dont know if they could even do it for the tumbler you have.

It would probably cheaper to do what Island Focus is suggesting.

Yea I found a whole set of new keys and locks on ebayuk. Thats funny about the transit key, I noticed some of those on ebay.

It will be funny when I put all these locks in and take it to a dealer to have a fob thing made. I have to reprogram since I only have one key.
