The only way to get the lock back is to take the door panel off the inside. There is a C-ring or E-ring that goes around the lock cylinder to hold it in the hole. Did some one punch it in to get the door open? There may be damage done. The lock cylinder may keep falling in if the hole is now to big. The lock cylinder goes in from the outside and the clip holds it from falling out of the door. It does not fall into the door very easily. If you take it to an auto glass place they can get the door panel off and on for you for a fair price. You do need a special tool to get the panel off without breaking the clips. You can rip it off and break the clips and purchase new ones from the dealer, an auto parts store or a window specialist. Hope this helps. If you have any more questions post them here I will check back again later.

Open up the fuse panel (open the drivers door to access). There is a fuse marked RADIO. Replace it. There are replacement fuses in the engine block fuse compartment.

Door lock assembly fell inside door


The same thing happened to my 2006 Aveo. Once you do the above find the lock and the screw that holds it in (they will both be in the bottom of the door). Put the lock back in place, put blue Loctite on the screw and screw it back in place and this problem will not repeat itself.

04 Chevy Aveo Lock


I just fixed my 2005 Aveo door lock. like so many it fell in to the inside and was hitting the window rod and locking. The fix was not to bad, I removed the 3 screws on the bottom door panel, one in the center of door pull and the one behind the arm pull. Then the door panel can be pulled out and up to unhook it from the window seam. I did not un hook the linkage from the door handel, I just slid panel down and let it hang to the side. Then peel the water film back so you can reach in and get the key lock back in to the hole. I found that my lock had rotated down and needed to be rotated back so the screw arm lines back up with the screw hole. I found a replacement screw in my screw tin that worked, tested it and it worked fine. Just revers the door panel removal proceduer making shur that the two hooks on back of the door handel cup is hooked into the two slots on door frame ot it will stick out and you will not be able to put the one screw in, dun deal.

Hope this helps
