When you say put WD-40 into the key tumblers. Where are trhe key tumblers? Do I spray into the key insert?

lightly go easy spray the key itself also, work it back anr forth on and off. when you take the key out have the wheels pointing straight. if you have them turned to the right or left that can put pressure against the release and you aill have to turn

it towards the pressure to turn key. i t will not hurt to spray door key lock also
