Has anyone had this issue? any tips? i tried 4 times, and each time i had to jimmy the retaining clip off or break it. (i broke the oem and the replacement) now i ordered another kit.
Hey SL, not sure what you mean. Is the key stuck in the lock cylinder with the lock cylinder out of the door. Or is the key stuck with the lock cylinder still in the door?
