Title: Boot lock pushed in and not turning fully/opening
Post by: mrboj on May 26, 2020, 01:11:02 PM
Off to a great start today. Fixed the choke cable and replaced missing air hoses. Went to lock the boot shut and it feels like the whole key mechanism pushed in a little. Now I am unable to unlock and open the boot. It turns about half way and then stops. I dont want to force it as I will break the only key I have. First pic shows the lock how it appears to be pushed in. The 2nd shows the max I can rotate the lock before it gets stuck. Any suggestions?

I use this stuff for lubricating and freeing up all kinds of locks, brilliant stuff.
