We don’t need to tell you the importance of the locks on your car, and it is essential to replace faulty locks which prevent you from accessing the car or securing it from the outside. Not only are car locks essential for safety reasons, but failure to replace a faulty lock could also result in a failed MOT. It might also be necessary to replace car door handles. The door handles on your car can become worn out over time, and in the end might become difficult to open, or cease to function altogether.
What are the Different Types of Car Door Locks?
There are three main types of door locks cars come installed with.
- Manual Lock Cylinders - An older style lock, that's more often found on older and classic cars. The door lock has a cylinder and must be unlocked with a key. Only unlocks the door you use it on.
- Automatic Locks with Keys - The key opens all the door locks on the car if you turn it in the door cylinder. Or you have a button on the fob which unlocks all the doors by just pressing a button.
- Automatic Locks with Fobs - This doesn't have a traditional key and is mostly unlocked and locked by pressing a button on the fob. Usually has a key that can be brought out if the power has gone in the car.
If you lock your key in your car there are specialist car locksmiths that can come out and unlock your car door without smashing a window.
What is Door Handle in a Car?
Simply put, the door handle is there to open the door of your vehicle once you have unlocked the car. Some door handles have lights on them so you can locate them easier in the dark.
Can Car Door Handles be Replaced?
