Anyone ever have problems with their drivers side door lock not working? I can turn the key but it doesn't grab onto anything to unlock the door. I think i might have seen a similar problem like this in another topic but i'm not sure if it was the same thing. Does anybody know what parts I need to fix it and what tools or steps i need to go through to fix it? Thanks..

Go to the dealer, they have a retro fit kit to fix this. http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif

How difficult is this job?
Mine broke and I bought another complete dorr handle set with cylinder but I want to swap the parts in order to use the older key is that doable?
