Default New door lock from key

I KNOW this has been answered somewhere, I just can't find the thread. The drivers door lock on my 93 is full of grit and sand and needs to be replaced. Will the dealer be able to make a new lock cylinder from my key?

If you get a new lock cylinder, a locksmith can match the tumblers up to fit your key.

Then again, many of the NA's use the same key so you should be able to just get a replacement. With your VIN you should be able to get the exact lock cylinder and just install it. Not like we have laser cut keys or anything.

Can't you just take it off and flush it out?

No, I tried cleaning it. It started to move a little, but now it's frozen. The passenger side was stuck but I cleaned it out and it's nice and smooth now. I've had the car for 4 years and I never locked the doors (soft top) so I have no idea if it ever worked.

I wasn't sure if Mazda kept track of things like that way back in 93. Looks like I will be taking a trip to the stealership and then I can lock my car at last! (I got a hardtop.)

I went by the dealer today. They said it was $60 for the cylinder and they would NOT make the lock match my key.

Is it just my dealer or am I SOL? I suppose I could swap the lock over from the passenger side, but I hear it's a PITA to get them out.
