Default lock cylinder

What do you guys do when your door lock cylinders worn out due to daily use over the last 20 years? how do you replace the door lock cylinders having the new ones work with the same key?

If you take the cylinder apart you can get the numbers off the wafers. I've pulled lock sets from other Civics in the junk yard until I got wafers that were in good condition with the right numbers, then installed the wafers in the order I wanted. With these cars being more rare in the junk yards, this may not be feasible. I'll bet with some digging you can find aftermarket lock wafers somewhere. If your key is really worn, you may need to have a locksmith cut a new key after you install new wafers.

The method you described is the same for door and ignition lock cylinders?

Did you try spraying some WD40 into the keyhole of the lock cylinder. That's the first thing to try.

He states this is a door lock he is "rekeying". Looks like it's wafers for it too so can go through the same process at my first glance.

You sure it's the lock cylinder? My drivers door reach a point where it would not unlock sometimes. After taking it all apart, it was the lock mechanism in the door latch that was failing. Lots of plastic parts in those latches. They get really sloppy over time.
