Rekeying depends on the specific brand of lock you have.

The easiest solution would be to replace your current locks with the same brand. Figure out how many of which locks you want to change, ie: deadbolts, entry knobs, etc. and buy matched sets from your local hardware store. They are marked with a key code on the box...make sure they match if you want the keys to be the same.

Rekeying door lock

It can be done at home. Remove the door panel. remove the plastic clip that is attached to the door rod, don't break it. Remove the outside door handle, pull it out. remove the clip that holds the lock cylinder. Remove the clip on the back of the cylinder. Then you can pull the cylinder out. Insert your key. With a file or grinder get rid of any excess tumblers out side of the cylinder. Use a small screw driver to push them out to make sure you get rid of all the excess. Clean up the sides of the cylinder and tumblers and make sure they move freely (I use a razor blade). Add oil. and blow them out with air. Reinsert the cylinder and make sure it works good with your key. Is so, reassemble.

Kwickset door handle fell apart on my front door help

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.)

Rekeying bonnet lock focus

Does the vehicle have warranty? If so, take it to your nearest Ford garage. Don't try to rekey the vehicle. This could cause major issues in the long run.
Hope I helped.

Lost my key, is the code for the original key on the lock anywhere

I am not sure about this model or the age of your lock but some of the locks have a rekeying. You also might be able to replace the round part that you installed wnen you first got the lock and you would have 2 new keys. Call the company.

Rekeying kwikset locks

Sure. You need to install the key in the cylinder and keep it turned so the pins are on top. Then you install the pins one at a time in each hole until all the pins fit level with the top of the cylinder, You will probably have to re-arrange the pins once or twice to get the correct length in the correct hole but once all the pins are level you're home free.
