We repair and replace all types of car door lock
No matter the reason, if a car door lock is damaged or broken, you need to have it repaired.
On Point Automotive Locksmiths employ technicians who are skilled at working on door locks and can help you out in an emergency or with preventive maintenance.
Repairing a car door lock has a number of steps.
First, the door panel must be removed in order to gain access to the cylinder.
We have found that many people have attempted this because it seems so simple with only a few screws.
However, if done improperly, the door panel can sustain damage and you will need a new panel, so there were no savings in the long run.
This job should be relegated to a professional.
Next, the cylinder is removed and carefully examined. The extent and type of damage will determine whether the cylinder can be repaired or will need a replacement.
After the cylinder is repaired or replaced, it is tested to be sure it works.
Then the panel is set back in place.
We make sure everything is secure and give the locking mechanism one last test.
After we receive your approval, our job is complete.
