Hello there, I am Cam.

I am Licensed technician at a GM dealership with more than 16 years experience. 
Like you, I am a user of this website and as such, any billing questions should be sent to customer service.

I ask that you please provide details and communicate with me so we can make your experience here worth 5 stars! I am around most days but not every minute of every day. If you reply while I am offline, I will respond when I am next online. 

I am reviewing your request and will post in a moment.

Is there a build up of dirt inside the key hole for the spare tire lock? This is the first I have heard of this, and dirt is the most likely cause.

If that is not the issue and its not frozen then you will have to get the assembly out from the inside, meaning take the housing off and replace the lock, but getting out the housing will allow you to get the tire down.

And welcome fellow Canadian!!
