Over time, the locks of your car will wear down and you will find it difficult unlocking the vehicle door. Replacing the lock will prevent any inconvenient event when you will not be able to open or start your car.
When to replace the car lock
For most people, they will need to replace a car lock if their keys were stolen or missing. It isn’t advisable to simply contact a locksmith or the car dealer where the vehicle was purchased to buy a duplicate key. There is a chance that the person who stole the car keys might find your vehicle and steal it.
In some cases with owners of modern cars, their car key has a computer chip integrated to it. Although it is meant to prevent your car from being stolen, you will not be able to enter or drive the vehicle if the key is missing. This will be an inconvenience if the keys are missing while the driver and the car are away from home since the keys are very hard to duplicate.
Another scenario is when the car lock is damaged to the point when it is very hard to rotate the key inside the lock. This is due to the wafers and pins becoming worn or the key‘s teeth slowly losing their shape. The same can also happen to the vehicle’s ignition lock.
