1. Open the door.
2. Unscrew the 2 screws on the inside and the 2 screws on the edge of the door.
3. Pull the thumb turn off, pull the outside cylinder and ring off, and pull the deadbolt assembly out of the edge of the door.
4. Unscrew the strike plate from the door frame and remove it and the plastic thing behind it, if it was installed.
5. Throw the whole thing in the trash. I wouldn't even reuse the screws!
Kwikset locks are inexpensive because they do not have replaceable parts. Buy a new one.
By the time the lock breaks, it's probably time to get different keys, but if you have so many keys in the hands of people you cannot contact, or you have more than three other locks keyed alike, and you must have the new lock work with the same keys as before, the place where you buy new locks probably has someone who can rekey the new lock to your old keys. Kwikset also sells locks that you can rekey to other Kwikset keys yourself. They are more expensive than other locks of the same type, but could save money long term, especially if you find a need to rekey your locks a lot (lots of visitors, part-time tenants or roommates, your kids lose their keys a lot, etc.)
unless your explorer was keyed alike (was requested that 1 key fits all) the only way to address this issue is to 1 try using liquid graphite (lock oil) in the locks 2 have a lock smith look at it and correct the problem or 3 (if you are handy) take the locks out and have the door locks rekeyed to to a new code, or rekeyed to work with your original key.
If you had bought this car used alot of time dealers will buy cars at auction that where repoed and the cars locks where rekeyed to work
