Anyway, I was just curious about the shear bolts. The theft thing makes sense to me, so that’s probably the rational for the special bolts.
I'm almost certain that every parts store has em. It's called Lock Cylinder assembly. What you need to do is to put the key in and turn it to 0 position. Then you will need to use something like a paperclip to push in the button on the inner part of the assembly then the lock cylinder will slide out. You will see the button inside the hole. Just push it in and pull on the key and the lock cylinder will slide out. The lock cylinder assembly will come with the lock cylinder and two keys.
