Driver's side lock mechanism [Solved]
2003 Stratus SE
I had a problem where the drivers side door could not be opened with a key. The key just kept continuing to spin when turned. Today I took the door panel off and found a Z shaped metal piece lying in the bottom of the door. The piece had an orange top with a flat metal connector, and inside the door there was a purple bottom.
After some struggling, I've manage to get the metal piece back on the lock, but the top part (that connects to the keyhole) refuses to stay put. It's as if some piece that was holding it together is now missing.
I can turn the key and unlock the door but the top half of the piece falls off again.
Anyone have any suggestions on how to keep it from falling off?
