lockable hatch fittings

Postby huntr52 » Mon May 31, 2010 1:11 pm

I have an 07 and have always put some type of lubricant on the locks in the hatch fittings to keep corrosion down. A couple of these locks have now frozen and wont work. Has anyone had the same problem and what did you do?? replace the complete fitting or just the lock itself??

If you replaced either one where did you go to find the same/correct fittings?

I used silicon spray. Squirt it in there and let it sit. Lean the door open and let it run out, repeat a few times. The key started to turn a little at a time. Silicon spray is the greatest invention ever for aluminum around salt water.

mine were froze up took it apart sprayed it good with degreaser and alcohol made sure the key would turn it , you can see the fins on the body of the lock make sure these will press in and out if not clean some more until they will , key should insert fully then and turn.
