Hi! My name is ***** ***** I can assist you with this. I may need some additional information from you first in order to give a complete answer.
I am wondering if the latch is their product? Most are made by Trimark. I am attaching a link to some by Atwood. See if yours looks like these or attach a photo of yours to your post using the paperclip icon. http://www.makariosrv.com/ap-products-rv-entry-motor-home-door-lock-black-013-257/?utm_source=bing&utm_medium=ppc
Good job on the photos. I am not sure whose lock that is, but you can take it out of the door by removing those scfrews on the inside AND those on the locking side. That allows the whole thing to come out so you can get some white grease in there and work it while it is out. Put it back the same way. Hope that helps. Please get back to me if you need more.
Both halves are going to stay intact so long as nothing is broken inside. Have someone hold some pressure on the outside portion while you remove the screws on the inside and AFTER you remove the two on the end where the latch is. That will allow the halves to come out of the door. OR you can leave the two screws in and keep pressure on the outside and just remove the inside and try some white lithium grease spray on the moving parts on the outer halve and lube the locking mechanism on the inside half. Then put the inside half back on and put the screws back in again.
Just checking back in to see if you were able to resolve this issue or if you need additional input from me here?
I suspect so............I have never seen anyone Loctite those in. Kind of overkill!
That might be a tough one.........but, if you use some WD40 or something similar it should be able to come out using a knife point. I don' recall ever breaking a Torx bit before.
You can heat it up with a blow dryer and that should soften it.
Sure........just Bookmark it and you can come right back to it again anytime. I am here every day.
