Generally, you remove the faceplate on the thin side of the door... there should be 2 screws there... then you'll see 2 holes on another faceplate underneath that one, which require an allen key of the right size... if your lucky you'll see a flathead bolt that can be loosened... then put your key only partially into the deadbolt and turn it counterclockwise and it will come out into your hand... then replace it or rekey it.

I have an exterior screwless doorknob that I need to remove. The faceplate on the inside knob that covers the screws is also covering the little pin that removes the knob. Is there another way to remove...

There is the 3rd version of the Kwikset exterior door set. The interior face plate is removed and on each side of the base plate has small slots with a lever on either side that need to be moved to the other end of the slot. The whole interior knob assembly with come off.

I loaned my 2001 taurus to some one i think they may have made a door key i know they cant start it with this key but i dont want them in my car when they feel like it can you offer any advice

If you are really worried about it, you can always replace the door locks, and have a separate keys for the doors, and the ignition. A great place to find cheap door locks, would be a local junkyard. They are fairly easy to replace, you just have to remove the door panel, 2 bolts, and a c clip. If you dont feel comfortable replacing the locks, most shops will do it for fairly cheap.

Your door lock is bad. Don't trust the door lock light because this will fool you. Even tho door locks 1 of the circuits is not continuing. Replace the door lock. Very easy to do. Do this by peeling back the door boot at the lock side. Reach hands inside for access to wiring and remove door lock switch.

The lock is removed after you undo the bolts on the inside The whole cenre should slip out. I doubt you can use another brand in the rim that will mate up with the equipment inside the house side of the door But you can completely replace it in the alreaqdy made hole

How to replace inside glass on KitchenAid KERC608 Type 30P Range

Open the door fully and with a small screw driver, look closely at the hinge area on the oven cavity. There you will see a small lever that will rotate down and lock the door in place. Once in the lock position, begin closing door, you will feel the door 'catch' then lift the door off of the oven.
