frozen door locks

hi all,
i've got a 87 s10 blazer 4x4 with a frozen door lock on the passenger side. i've tried p.b. blaster on them as well as yanking on the linkage (working
it back and forth) and so on. is there a way to get the lock mechanism out of the door shy of cutting the door with a torch? tia Jjj

Yup, yank the inner door panel, remove the window, then you can remove the latch handle/lock assembley and replace the key cylinder.

Open the door, roll up the window. remove the inner door panel, reach into the door and pull the actuator rod off the lock cylinder arm. Then pull the retainer clip off the back of the door panel. Lock cylinder will pull out then. Take it to a locksmith and he can make you up a new one.

the Torx screws are on the outside of the door shell:
But what Doc did is give you access to the Torx head in the striker pin.
Respectfully submitted.

PS Doc, any luck on Quarters. If you're going to spend $450.00 on used, I'd go the extra &150.00 per quarter and replace the wheel house outers too. Then if you sell the car, you have receipts that you have the best on it. Also: apply rustproofing with wands and a flex hose, so it will never rust again!

thanks guys, that was my guess as to what to do....although i didn't think that the striker pin would fit through the cut-out in the door for the door latch ass'y. thanks again, Jjj
