    07 DTS Passenger side lock broken

    Hi all. The other day I noticed my passenger side front door lock on the top of the door seemed crooked. When I looked at it I saw that it was broken and just basically sitting there. Does anyone know what part number this would be to replace? I took a couple pictures to post hoping someone had been through this before.

    It looks like it might screw in down there but I'm not sure if I just need a part of it or a whole new one. Thanks in advance for any ideas! :-)

    Thanx for the reply :-) I found one on eBay for under ten shipped :-) any idea if I have to take the door panel off or if I can just unscrew what is left and screw the new one on? Looks like it's a bit wiggly dunno if when I unscrew what is there if the part that screws into the new knob will fall down or move so I can't put the new one on?

    Thank you

    It looks like you could take a skinny pair of needle nose and unscrew what is still there... then just screw the new one on and you should be good to go.
