Thanks for the info and the photo. I was thinking I would need to replace the lock cylinder as it seems very loose so I could do both at the same time.

mine was very lose also, the part I pictured is the culprit. Though the picture just shows the connector side. It is a sliding mechanism, after all this is just plastic so over the years, 20 of them it deformed a bit to have some slop. As the key turns it moves the slide to contact at different positions.

you might as well give a pictorial on how you do it here or a link to another thread that does for future do it yourselfers.

That sounds like a good idea. Step by step pictorials are always helpful. Could be cool if I actually post one myself. Not in any real hurry to get into it though. Don't drive it that often so it is hard to get it to the top of the priority list.
