If you are mechanically inclinded and understand how the lock cylinder is configured and operates you could likely do it yourself.

Good luck

Well, this is what I found. The key is turning completely, but there is a black plastic piece on the back of the lock that holds the latch release cord/wire. When the key is turned, it pulls this latch release and opens the trunk with the key. But, unfortunately, the spot on the black plastic piece that holds the cord/wire has broken. So, I need to replace just that little piece.

Does anyone know if that piece is sold separately? Or will I have to buy the whole cylinder just to salvage that little piece off?

EDIT:

So, I took a picture of the piece in question. You can see that I tried - unsuccessfully - to super glue the end of the latch wire onto the black piece.

Maybe you can just get the plastic piece from the JY.

Good luck
