Just an idea for you. You could get one of those slide hammer dent pullers. Then, screw it in and hammer it out. Just the lock part should pull out. The locks have brass pin that keeps it in place. It's should be easy to pop. I've done this on motorcycle collum locks. A new lock comes with a key.

What are those rivets in the door jam holding, maybe they need to come off? This looks like a custom job IS IT? did you try tapping on a screw driver from the inside.

On the inside of the door it looks like 2 holes 1 above and 1 below the square shaft, have you looked in through the holes to see if there are screws holding the dead bolt, if not there may be a spring clip around it, they are much easier to get in than to remove.
Good luck,
Steve

You can take the whole thing to a locksmith and they can make a key by feel. It is amazing to see them do it. They start with a blank key and in 5 mins they have a working key.

You need to remove the inner skin next to the door which may include removing a window frame trim on the inside. Once inside the skin, you need to remove all the white sticky caulk and then remove two 1/4-20 nuts from the top and bottom of the handle for a total of 4 nuts. When you get the handle out there will be two screws that hold the lock core in. I replaced the lock core because some idiot PO tried to drill it out. The new lock core was too small so I had to make a new trim ring to fit the new lock core.

If you do not have a service manual, call Jackson Center and ask for the service manager. he should be able to tell you what to do without breaking some thing else which might be no longer available or expensive. Mine does not work either, so I just use the deadbolt lock.

Thanks everyone! I think perry got it. The rivets in the door hold that part of the dead bolt in. Had a lock smith over to look at it and they couldn't get in it. That is why I posted. He tried to do an impression as well and said that it was flat teeth and just couldn't get enough to make a key from. He said when I can get that core out let him know and he will make a key but until then I can only use the bolt from the inside. I did get keys made for the door and all the access panels from him since the PO didn't have any keys at all! So now at least I can lock stuff up but just don't have the dead bolt working from the outside yet. At some point I will go ahead and take it all apart. Is there a specific rivet gun to have or pretty much any good one will do? Plus is there a special tool to drill out rivets without making a disaster? I know about the shaving tool for the outside rivets but wondering about drilling them out?

Matt

Not All locksmiths are equally experienced. Try a more experienced locksmith! (My husband is a master locksmith, but we live too far from you.)

You can remove the rivets with a #30 drill bit. You can use standard 1/8" pop rivets to put stuff back. You can get them at Lowe's Home Depot, Walmart Etc. You all aluminum pop rivets. I order them from mcmaster.com but you should be able to find a local source.

Thanks for the post Perry.

I have the same problem except the entire key cylinder fell out somewhere. I was going to cut a large hole in the inside skin so I could get to the back of the lock (and make a nice patch to cover the hole) but apparently that's not enough. Its going to be an ugly job but at least you saved me from making a useless hole in my wall.

Door Handle Deadbolt

OK. This is getting out of hand. The rivets are out of the interior panels but the panels aren't budging. I'm now remembering something a dealer mechanic said about having to remove the door frame to get to that handle and then the lock? I see pop rivets inside the door frame but I'm wondering if the panels surrounding the door are folded over inside the door opening so the whole door frame has to come out to get at the back of the handle.

Anyone have any tips besides give up?

I had to remove the door frame which was held on by a couple of rivets and metal clips from the inside. Once I got the door frame off I was able to get the inner panels off.
Good luck!
