How do I remove the lock mechanism(with the key)....I have pulled the pin on the plastic switch and have that hanging.I cant see any screw holding the lock in.....and a gentle tap both ways with the hammer gave no movement

The problem is the lock also operates the glove box (*by your knees)..so I need to replace it

The latch mechanism from the door to the key area is functioning

which way does lock come out..and is it held in by anything other than the plastic switch and pin

Going by old memory, but I think there's a tiny setscrew holding it in? You may have to remove the glovebox.

There’s a tiny hole underneath the lock tube. Insert a small pin and press in the lock’s locking plate...

I think maybe the set screw was on older PK's, the pin lock on newer ones? That does ring a bell on my PK50XL2. I remember I pulled a setscrew on this old one to remove switch to start the motor coz didn't have the key when I was ready to try. I did not remove the lock itself I now recall.

Yours is the newer style if lock also opens plastic glovebox, so listen to SaFiS.


Separate key for glovebox.


One way or the other, you'll get it out!
