Question about 1998 Jeep Cherokee
Chances are that you already dried spraying wd40 or another good solvent into the key hole. If not, try that.
The alternative isn't as bad as it looks. cut a hole into the inner panel and work the lock mechanism from the inside. There are usually lots of replacement panels in local scrapyards and they aren't expensive. Any lock parts you may need can be obtained there as well, If you have the assembly I'm thinking of the entire handle and lock are held in by one bolt that usually breaks or has to be broken to remove it. You can drill through where it used to be and use a countersunk tulip bolt to re-install it. Latch mechanism and electric lock motor are bolted in and not difficult to remove. I'd locate a panel first so you aren't driving around with the hole there (once you do that it will be forgotten and stay that way forever....seen a lot like that)
Any problems just ask and I'll help!
