Today when I went to unlock my car I turned the key and nothing happened on my driver's side. Can't lock it either. The trunk and passenger side central locking work fine so I can lock the whole car temp. from the pass. or trunk. What's wrong? Thanks, Scott

Remove either the door rubber or the black covers near the door handle at the side of the door (after opening) and untighten the torque (or whatever) "bolt" you see in there while using a flashlight). Don't turn the bolt out to far, you only need to untighten it a little so that you can get the lock out of the door (push it to the rear after the bolts has been released a bit and then pull it out the door).
There is a pin from the lock itself to the mechanism in the door which is either broken or came loose...
