Hey guys, new here, i read this thread when redoing my lock cylinder, took apart fine, put back together fine, but now when key is left in lock ( i havent put back in my car yet, its stationary position is that if you were locking the door, and if i turn it to go to the position of unlocking the door, it does not get that far, it just goes to the position it would if you were taking the key out or putting the key in.... any ideas why its stationary position is the locking position and why it wont let me go to the unlocking position... any help would be appreciated

So im not double posting


The reason for my above problem is the kit i bought came with 2 parts and i have to pick one or the other, the different between these 2 were the inner slots the key cylinder were in were different to the other spare, so i swapped them round and voila problem solved.
