Hi, my mom’s truck was stolen about a week ago. Luckily it was recovered and
I have it back, but it suffered some pretty significant damage to the door locks
and the ignition. The driver’s side lock is completely shredded and I have to
get it replaced, but my question is about the passenger side lock:
It looks like the lock mechanism has been pushed complete into the car door. I
can see it just barely but it isn’t accessible. When I lock the door from the
inside it won’t open from the outside handle. I’m trying to cut down on repair
costs as much as possible, so if I don’t care about being able to unlock the
passenger door from the outside do I need to repair that lock? My main
concern is it being a security risk. I don’t know cars very well, so I’m
wondering if a car thief who knew what they were doing walked by and saw
that would they be able to shove something in and open the door in three
seconds flat or something like that. It’s just a hole where the lock should be.
Please advise, this whole thing has already been a nightmare personally and
