Hi, I'm Mike from 1A Auto. We've been selling auto parts for over 30 years.

Hi, everyone. Sue here, from 1A Auto, and today we have a 2011 Ford Fiesta in the shop, and I'm going to show you how to remove the external key lock. So if you need any parts of your car, click on the link below and head on over to

So we're going to start with right here. There's a little black boot. I take this boot off, and if you look inside there, there's a little Torx bit screw. And it's a T20. It doesn't come out, but it stays in place. You've got to loosen it up to take the outer handle off.

So once you line that up, just get to back off on it. Like I said, the screw itself is not coming out. It floats in there. It's like a vice for this piece right here. Just keep loosening it up until this piece just comes right out. So that screw goes in here and holds that piece tight in there. Like I said, it stays in there. Now you've got the external lock out.

Then you put the lock mechanism on. Flat piece is going to go up against the handle. Slide that right in until it's flush. Then you take your T20 and go right through there. You can see the head of a screw that is suspended in there. And once you feel it, tighten it down. When it stops, it's done.

Don't forget to put your little boot on. Keep the weather out.
