    I have the exact same thing happen to me except with a 2005 aveo, do you know if someone might have been tampering with the lock? I currently live in an apartment complex that is not in the best part of town. I am just trying to figure out if this is some weird defect or is this is caused by someone trying to break into the car. If you could please email me back at I would appreciate it.

There are 3 screws on the bottom of the door and 1 in the the arm rest. then you have to lowere your window and use a tool to pry the the inside door pannel off, or just pull on the bottom until the the pannel is loose. and then lift up.

Is it a rectangular C-clip? The clip that holds the lock in place, by being wedged between the lock and the inner sheet metal of the door. Other than that, I don't know, a rod for the door handles?

The keys are locked in my chevrolet 2004 Aveo. How do I get it unlocked?

well if you careful not to ruin the paint you can take a screw driver and gently pry at the top of your door to create a small space in which you can take a long rod and slide it inside the vehical to push the unlock button or to open the door from the inside....but like i said you have to be real gentle if you dont want to mess up the paint in the spots you are prying.

I am unable to operate the lock from the outside

Can you still open the door from inside? if so then most likely the metal bar that connects the door lock to the mechanism has come off, you will have to remove the interior "door trim/ door card" so you can see on the inside of the door, sometimes it is just a small plastic gromit that cracks and fall's into the bottom of the inside of the door. these are about £4 each from renault and it's an easy job to do your self.

Is the key stiff in the lock? or is the lock just spinning? if it is stiff then most likely the lock is at fault if the lock just spins round and does not open the door then the fault is more likely the mechanism inside the door or the forementioned gromit.

If you need any help with the door trim let me know and i will talk you through it. it's fairly easy even for a novice.

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
