Remove/replace K200 drift pins

Not sure if I have the right names/terms here.

I am trying to repair my OEM KT200 (?) entry door lock. I need to remove/ replace several drift pins (? small split round shaft) that holds*parts in place or acts as a stop for a lever. One of these is flush mounted. How do I get these out?

Also where can I get new drift pins and a new lock cylinder. Inland RV? local locksmith?

I cant speak for the availability of your lock parts but the pins you are describing are called roll pins and are readily available at most any well stocked hardware store, I also suggest buying the appropriate size punch made specifically for these pins. they are a straight drift punch with a nipple in the center which centers the pin and removes /replaces them without damaging the faces. NOTE: don't use these punches for any other use or you will deform the nipples and render them useless for their intended purpose

Try Vintage Trailer Supply. They seem to have allot of parts for the KT units.

Parts for those locks are still available through Airstream dealers, including those roll pins.
