Customer Question
The rear door lock...

The rear door lock won't lock. Not with power lock, and I can not turn the key in that direction to lock it either. Any ideas how to fix it?

Mechanic's Assistant: Can you turn the steering wheel at all? And what about the key? Is it worn or damaged?

Yeah steering wheel is fine. Key shows no damage

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model/year of your Mitsubishi?

2004 montero sport ls

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Montero Sport yourself? What have you tried so far?

Yes. I have tried wiggling key in rear door lock to see if it was grime keeping it from moving. It turns in the unlock direction only, not the lock direction.
