New post Delocking a MKIV
Here's how it's done. I've found a few DIY's but with most of them the pictures no longer work, or they don't include part #'s.

Here's my take on it.

This mod is easy as pie, but maybe not as tasty. Sure maybe it's as good as blueberry pie, or perhaps even apple. But not as good as something like chocolate. :-)

Here's the parts you're going to need.

Housing
1K4839167
Cap
3B4839879AGRU

And some primer, paint, and clear. I ordered mine from Paintscratch.com, they were relatively cheap, and easy to order from. I've managed to do several projects with the paint now, and I still have plenty left.

The cap and housing

Image

I made a little "stand" out of foam board to hold my cap in place while I painted it. This kept it off the spraying surface and made it easier to move around. And because I'm cool. :mrgreen:

Image

I prepped the cap by cleaning it well and then sanding with 400 grit.

Image

Here comes the primer. I sprayed 2 coats of primer, then sanded with 1000.

Image

Then the base coat.

Image

And more base coat. I ended up spraying 4 coats of base, sanding with 1000 between the first 2, then wetsanding with 2000 between the last 2.

Image

Then the clear. I lost track of how much clear I sprayed. At least four coats. Wet sanded with 2000 between coats, but I did not sand the final coat. I merely used some 3M polish and let it go. I think it came out pretty damn fine if I do say so myself.

Image

Now to remove the old lock. First remove this plug.

Image

Behind the plug lies a T20.

Image

Image

The damn thing sits in there like 3 inches. I initially tried to use a 1/4 ratchet with a short extension, but it's just too tight an area. In the end I ended up using a screwdriver/torx.

Image

The T20 acts as a set screw of sorts on the lock cylinder, once you loosen it the cylinder can just be pulled out my hand with minimal drama from the outside.

Here's what the cylinder looks like once you extract it.

Image

Install the housing with the cap, re-tighten the T20, replace the black plastic cap, and you are done.

Image

Image

Celebrate with a cold one :partyman: and practice crawling through your trunk. :thumbsup:

Yep, crawl through the hatch. The hatch still has a cylinder in it, and can be opened manually.

Here's the response I typed out to answer the more common questions answered on the 'tex. I'm too lazy to re-type it so here it is in all it's cut and paste glory.

Quote:
Seems like there's only ever a handful of repeating questions with this mod. Lets see if I can tackle a few.

Question 1.) Dude, your cars going to get broken into like wicked easy now, like monkeys with pixie sticks could totally steal your ride. Or....the flipside.... How is this mod going to make my car impervious to even the most professional of car thieves?

Answer 1.) I don't care. I don't think this mod makes the car easier nor more difficult to break in to. My car lives it's life primarily in the garage, swaddled in the sweet nothings of manufactured air. If someone REALLY wants to break into my car, they're going to. There's very little I can do about it about but suck it up, come on here and ***** for a few days about the loser that desecrated my baby.

Question 2.) What happens when the battery dies? What happens when the remote battery dies? What happens of you get struck by lightning? or attacked by a ravage pack of badgers? How are you going to get in your car then smart guy???? Huh? Huh? Huh?

Answer 2.) I going to crawl through the trunk. That's it, if any one of theose happen, I'm just gong to crawl through the damn trunk. Yeah, it may suck a bit but really lets take a look at the real problem. If my vehicles battery dies in the middle of a Lousiana swamp, I've got bigger friggin problems than wondering how I'm going to get my copy of "The best of Guns and Roses" from the console before the tow truck driver comes. My car is going to be sitting dead in the middle of nowhere, and me without a ride. It's deliverance baby!!! Secondly, my remote battery. I've NEVER seen a remote battery spontaneously die, it usually gives you some kind of warning, like you know it really starts to suck and not work well unless your actually standing on the hood of your car. But if it does..... that's right, I'm just going to crawl through the hood.

Question 3.) How are you going to use your cool windows down with the door lock feature?

Answer 3.) I never have. I think I tried it once to to see it work, other than that I've never used it my my daily routine, I can live without it. And if I really wanted, I could get one of those alien controller thingys that lets me do it with the remote. Assuming of course that the remote battery isn't dead, and I've managed to fend off the badgers.

So that's it kids, it's a REALLY easy mod thet I did for obviously ONLY aesthetic reasons. I like it, you should all do it, and you should all make little foam stands to hold the cap when you paint.

Thanks to all for the kind words. :-)

Great Job and looks good. Funny thing though, I was fine with the exposed lock untill you did this mod and offered the DIY on getting rid of it. Now, everytime I reach for the door handle I have this ugly key lock to look at. Just do not think I would have the patience you have to get er done.

Try hyphenating it... instead of "delock", replace w/ "de-lock". A hyphen will let you get away with "spelling murder". That way all of the English teacher "wanna-bees" won't have anything to grump about and will leave you alone!
