I think my driver's side lock is about to's getting harder and harder to unlock the door with the key.
If anyone had the same problem, do you know how much it will cost to fix it? Do I need to change it in both doors?

Damn labor is frappin' expensive!!!!

You have take of the door panel. Remove the plastic cover (Watch out for the black tar-like glue). Then take a look at the mechanism and get yourself some white lithium grease. Douse the entire mechanism from head to toe. And see if that facilitates the turning of the key. Use the small tube supplied with the grease in a bottle to spray some grease into the keyhole itself. Work it and work it and work it some more and keep spraying. If that doesn't help, then right bu the inside door handle, if you follow the metal rod coming from the Jam, you'll see that at one point it's threaded. Undo the lastic clip and test fit it either further to the left or further to the right. If that doesn't work. do the following:

-Go to Pep Boys
-Buy a 3 gallon Gas container
-Go to gas station
-Fill up with gas
-Drive to the middle of nowhere
-Doise your car with gasoline
-Light match and call
-Call a cab
-Go home

Good luck!
