2000 996 coupe 6 speeds: door lock stopped working

Recommended Posts

I cannot lock the door any more. The key rotates freely with no resistance.

Any suggestions on how to fix the lock?

Thanks

There is a pin shaft on the back side of the key cylinder that can break or fall off.  You will have to remove the door card and access the back of the door handle to check it.  Here is a diagram of the door handle and key cylinder.  You can see the shaft on the back of the key cylinder.

Thanks. I will remove the door panel and have a look at that pin shaft.

At least it stopped working with the door unlocked!  If it happens when the door is locked you have a real problem.
