Question about 2000 Ford Focus
Wiggle the key a lot and try to get it to turn. It has to turn to remove or replace the cylinder. If you can't get it to turn it will have to be drilled out. Ford has a new and improved lock cylinder that comes uncoded. It will have to be coded to fit your old key. This way you won't have to get a different key programed to start your car and that will cost you more money. The cylinders are around $100.00 to $125.00. You can buy one fron auto zone for about $65.00 but you will have to get it programed $$$ by a dealer or locksmith that does this. The auto zone cylinder will be like what is in yours now and most likely fail sometime down the road anyway. If you drill it wrong you can damage the steering lock housing also.
