How difficult is it to change/fix a deadbolt locking mechanism? My front door to the apartment has a fucked up deadbolt that won't lock. The key can't be inserted at all and it looks like somebody might have tampered with it.

I live in an apartment complex and my property manager is a Puerto Rican asshole who takes months to respond to work orders.

easy. Get it at a hardware store and you can probably get them to set it to your old key if you want.

fuck re-keying it, just replace it and go about your business. if the manager spic says anything tell them you needed it replaced and couldnt wait for them to fix it. they dont need to be going in your apartment at will anyways stealing your shit.

Same here, I took it apart and there's a small rotating part that just shattered under stress.

Super easy, I was doing deadbolt installs at 10.

Spray liquid graphite into it and then work the key in and out before you bother with anything else.
After that, you could take it off the door and spray the remaining shit inside and see if that frees it up.

It takes 5 minutes to replace.
