Quick question on keylock replacement
 
1 Attachment(s)
Hi all. Wanted to ask a quick question on where to find instructions on removing the driver side door trim panel to get to the key cylinder. My jeep's key only came with one remote and for some reason the key does not work to open the door. I am afraid that my one remote battery might go dead and I wont be able to get into the car one day. Picture below of the cylinder I am trying to fix. Thanks for any advice.

The instructions were very helpful. The grab handle is retained by 3 bolts. I removed the bolts and took out the lock cylinder retaining clip. With that I was able to twist the cylinder out without removing the grab handle links. I have added picture below to hopefully help the next person that might have to do the same thing. I took the cylinder to my local locksmith and they keyed it for me for $25. All buttoned up and good as new now. Thanks again.
