My hatch key won't turn. I'm assuming something got into the key tumbler keeping it from turning. So I'm trying to disassemble it.

So I pulled out the tailgate lock cylinder and pulled the spring off, but I don't see an obvious way to pull the tumbler out? Do you pull off the chrome key side cap off? Does the plastic part that connects to the rod pull out or push in?

Anybody do this before?

Remove the plastic piece, then the metal ring from the front.
the rear part has a C or E clip, remove it ant the tumbler is ready to be dismantled. Beware the inner pieces are spring loaded they might shoot out when sliding if off the assembly.
Check you tube videos for re keying intiont tumbler or those words. It is basically the same.
