    Free rotation of key in front RH door lock of Petra

    I own Petra ELX 1.9D whose driver side door lock suddenly got stuck and while opening with the key there was a slight noise and the key started rotating freely. The door got opened but could not be locked with the key. However, the door gets locked with the remote. Does it mean the lock is broken? Can any expert member suggest as to how to repair it. I have a spare lock barrel originally supplied by FIAT.

    Thanks.

    looks like the lock mechanism is broken or worn out. Get hold of a good mechanic, open the lock and find out what exactly has gone wrong

    SD, from your description, it does looks like the lock is broken inside. You have to get it open to find out the damage. Maybe replace it with what you have now.

    Dear Rudrah,
    Looking at the lock barrel that I have, it does not seem to be possible that it can break with the key force. Possibly, some weaker or relatively delicate part inside is broken. I will be able to see that only when the door pad is opened as suggested by Mr Talati.

    Regards,
