Trunk lock

Post by 57Thunderbird » Wed Mar 13, 2019 5:52 am

We need to remove the key barrel from the lock housing of the trunk of a 57 Thunderbird. Any tips how this can be done? It looks like it is being kept in place by a pin projecting from the inner part. Would this be spring loaded? It seems stuck. Thanks.

Insert the key and turn the barrel while pushing the pin and the barrel should slide out.
