Happy with purchase
I could have saved a couple of bucks buying it elsewhere, but the instructional videos from 1A Auto have been so useful that I decided do business with them. I read previous reviews about the lock being difficult to insert into the door handle, so I prepared by greasing it a little with Chapstick, and with a couple of light blows, it clicked into place. It is so nice to not have to enter through the passenger door when I am driving the car. Thank you.

A Little Tight
The lock was a little tough to get in the new handle, but a couple of whacks and we were good to go.

lock did not fit into handle
This part appeared to be an exact match. Spent $50 to get handle painted to match car. Upon removing old lock from handle, the lock would not fit into new painted handle (no paint was in lock slot). Way too tight. Could not get lock into plastic slot. Had to spend an hour filing outside of lock to fit into plastic slot. I would estimate lock slot was 1/32 inch too small.
