Awesome video! Good info for when I do my door swap on the '98 before it goes for paint.

Nether. Locks fail if not used. Graphite is not enough. Remove the cylinder, clean it with solvent working it with the key and re-install. Lock shop did it for me, don't know what the aerosol solvent was but something that doesn't leave oil to collect dirt.
