If you get lucky you can save a binding cyl. or lock mechanism with oil, or lube.
But, far too many lock cylinders are going bad, causing the owners to wait while Germany codes a new one to ship back to the states.
Waited almost a month recently for a friends '87 325ic to get here after parts national lost the original order and neglected to tell anyone at my dealership for almost a week.
The $400 figure sounds really high, what is the model car for that one?
