The lock cylinder fell inside the door panel on drivers side. My locks are power and the key that unlocks the door is also my ignition key. How do I fix this and where can I get the parts?

PARTS STORES, SUCH AS ADVANCE AUTO PARTS, WILL LEND/ RENT YOU A TOOL SET THAT YOU CAN REMOVE AND INSTALL THE LUGS (AT THAT STORE, YOU ARE REALLY BORROWING THE TOOL, YOU GET YOUR DEPOSIT BACK WHEN YOU RETURN THE FULL SET)

SO REALLY ALL YOU HAVE TO BUY IS THE STUDS!

WHAT A DEAL!

LEMME KNOW HOW IT PANS OUT

SOMEHOW I POSTED A REPLY TO ANOTHER POST ONTO YOURS. SORRY

BUT

MOST POPULAR PARTS STORES HAVE OR CAN GET DOOR HANDLE ASSEMBLIES (SHOULD YOU NEED ONE, IF YOURS IS BROKEN IN SOME WAY

IT MIGHT BE THAT A RETAINER OR PIECE HAS COME LOOSE AND MAY STILL BE TRAPPED INSIDE OF THE DOOR.

I FEEL SURE YOU ARE GONNA HAVE TO REMOVE THE DOOR PANEL TO GET IN THERE TO FIND/ FIX THE LOCK CYLINDER.

YOU CYLINDER MAY STILL WORK JUST FINE AND YOU MAY HAVE NO NEED TO WORRY ABOUT THE "KEY THING"

POPPING A DOOR PANEL IS NOT A HARD TASK, YOU MUST TAKE CARE IN THAT THERE MAY BE SCREWS OR OTHER FASTENERS THAT MUST BE POPPED LOOSE IN A CERTAIN WAY TO GET THE PANEL OFF. MOST VEHICLES ARE SIMILAR WITH THE PUSH FASTENERS. IT'S THE ODD BALL SCREW OF WAY OF LIFTING STUFF THAT MAKES YOU SCRATCH YOUR HEAD SOMETIMES!

TO MAKE THIS REALLY EZ, SEEING IS BELIEVING, AND A VIDEO IS WORTH A MILLION WORDS!

GO TO YOU TUBE AND DO A SEARCH FOR

2005 Suzuki Reno DOOR HANDLE REPLACEMENT (I FEEL SURE YOU WILL FIND IT)

OR

DOOR PANEL REMOVAL

OR

WHATEVER!

LOOK AT SEVERAL DIFFERENT VIDEOS, SOME PEOPLE EXPLAIN STUFF BETTER/ OTHERS MAY HAVE BETTER FOOTAGE OF HOW IT ALL GOES TOGETHER

THIS SHOULD MAKE YOU FEEL REALLY CONFIDENT IN PERFORMING THE TASK

RETURN HERE WITH A BIG OLE GRIN, THIS SHOULD NOT BE A HARD JOB
