From what I know, you can get a door lock cylinder with 1 key for $90 from Ford. Then you have to go to a lock smith and have all the locks re-keyed to match. Without replacing all three with a kit the keys will not much which is a pain in the ***.

Call a locksmith and have them put a new door lock cylinder in.

Get a cylinder or two from pick n pull. Take the lock(s) to a locksmith to have them rekeyed to match your key.

I don't know about the OBS locks, but when this happened to my truck I went to the dealer and bought a new lock cylinder kit. The kit included the cylinder and all the little tumblers to build the cylinder to match my existing key. I bought it from the dealership. I hope that helps...

You can get used locks and change the tumbles to suit your needs. Once the lock is in your hands, it takes about 2 minuets to do

How do you get the front cap off without damaging it, and crimp it back on?

It has been a few years since I had one apart, but IIRC you access it from the back. Pull the E-clip then the metal tab that the rod goes to.. Then inset the ket to disengage the tumblers. After that i cant quite remember
