    faceplate on outside and inside just spin. spinning counter-clockwise. no spots in the brass at all. leveraged small screwdriver under edge of it but no luck. really just bending door. completely sealed. I have no idea of model of this thing but I read somewhere some models have allen bolts only accessible from behind deadbolt plate. I don't see that either.

    outside cyl failed. I can easily re-key this, but - how do you disassemble the da-- thing to be able to fix.????? I tried the twist, even used a pipe wrench, no go unless destroy it. Then drilled out to a larger size the two small holes on the inside part. Can see the screws but no way to get at them. In my tool bin I have a dissasembled B362, it has no holes at all - and the beveled covers are stamped and pressed into the bases where the screw go. Go to Schlage site and all you can get is info on the single cylinder model. I do maint. on a old building that has many of these things and I hate to destroy them to rekey, new sets cost big bucks and it is not needed. JUST TELL ME HOW TO DISSASEMBLE THE DA-- THINGS.

Schlage B160 - need small screwdriver to insert at bottom of faceplate to pry cover off. Face plate appears flush, but with a penlight you can see the recess at the bottom to pop it off. Screws lie under the cover for disassembly. Seems to be a lock design improvement once you figure out how to remove the faceplate.

There should be a small spot in the brass usualy on the bottom to pry the faceplate off. or the face plate may twist off try both under there you will find the skrews

    Just as soon as I read this I went... oh yeah... this has to be it. I went right out to my lock and used a screwdriver to pry the inside plate off. Gee, and under that were two screws to remove the lock.

    Sad part is that I installed this lock some 20 years ago - you would think that I would remember this!
