Door Locks

On my first trip one of my locks broke, the dead bolt won't turn. I opened it up and it looks like a plastic seal is cracked. I've only had it a year and just barely used it. Wondering if it's covered by warranty or extended. It's stored almost an hour away from the dealer and wondering if it's worth the gas or should I just upgrade it myself and replace?

If its a worth the price of gas, then yes take it back to your dealer.....If its a $10 part and you are able to fix it, then no. We waited until we had a bit of a list after the first couple months, however a door lock is another thing.

You can buy a whole new lock on Ebay for under $35 delivered. It will cost you twice that to take you TT to a dealer an hour away. You can just rob the part you need off of the new lock assy or replace the whole thing. If you order a new lock try to get the same key code if possible.

Why don't you try calling the dealer and explaining the problem? If you have a good dealer, they might just send you the part. You have nothing to lose by trying.
