'96 B4V w/AFN swap, 2011 JSW with a leaking pano
96 B4V, the other day put my key in the rear hatch lock to open the door, and when I pulled the key out the tumbler came out with it.
Is there a replacement part for this? I've done a little searching but not having any luck. Is there a particular name for this?

thanks

FUBAR'd. You need some parts if it came out. I'll have a look at mine in the next day or two, unless someone beats me to it, to see what you need.

no replacement parts, so the wrecking yard is probably my next option? crawling into the back to open the hatch is not really something I want to do...
If I do happen to find a new mechanism, will a locksmith be able to rekey it so I don't need a separate key?

thanks again

are there any other lock mechanisms from other models that would fit on my B4V? I'm not finding anything local...and crawling into the back to open the hatch gets old after awhile.
