A new lock assembly is about $250 and is about 1.5 hours to replace. I don't know about locksmiths in your area but locksmiths around us are a cheap alternative many will come out to your house remove the lock assembly and re- key it or repair it. For lock removal instructions There is a company that independent auto repair shops buy their information from that the same information inexpensively to do it yourselfers. The information is year make and model specific repair procedures, service bulletins, component locations, wiring diagrams ect.... Alldata is very easy to navigate
