I just bought one used and cheap,problem,I have not a key.I'm a do it myself kind of guy(locksmith wants 200 bucks) so my question is how do I get the lock mechanism out of its housinng so a key can be madebr
Maybe that is why it was "cheap" ? Thule lock cylinders are @ $35. You won't get the system that was updated and is on the current model since @ 2009 but it should be simple to change a cylinder which will come with a new key. Good Luck.
There should be a number on the lock, and you can order a replacement key for that lock from Thule:
This will be cheaper/easier than going to a locksmith
