I have a 1992 300TE. I cannot unlock the car from the driver's side door. The key will not turn to the left, although I can lock the car from this door. I can also lock/unlock the car from the passenger side door and rear hatch door with no problems.

Any ideas why it may be sticking? Any solution?

Thanks

You will need a new tumbler assembly. The left one will come with a new key. We can get them if needed. You will have to show proof of ownership.

Thanks Go to partsshop if you need this part delivered right to your door.

Try some graphite (lock lubricant) from hardware store, apply to lock and key. sometime it can free a frozen lock.

Here's a related question: I had a bad trunk lock assembly for my '84 300D, so I got a replacement from a junker in the salvage yard (which I've not installed yet, since I have no key for it). Can I get a key made for that lock, or would it be better to try and get the lock assembly for MY car from MBZ or whoever?
