    I need to remove the door panel so that I can get at the lock so I can get the number off that thing (the truck has been rekeyed) and get new keys. I have a 1995 tacoma 4x4 ext cab and I searched and the only thing I found was http://www.ncttora.com/fsm/2003/Repair_Manual/03tacoma/bo/frodoo/disa.pdf but I tried that and Im guessing it doesn't apply to my year/trim for the tacoma. So how do I get the door panel off? no power windows/locks.

    ok i managed to get the door panel apart. any idea where exactly on the lock the code is, so I can get new keys made? A picture would be worth at least a thousand words :)

    alright well I found the code on the lock cylinder. Instead of deleting this thread I'll leave it open in case someone searches. You do NOT need to take the cylinder itself out, grab some wd-40 and a rag and clean that cylinder, you will have to break the plastic, but only the corner to get at it. But like I said, dont take the door handle or the cylinder out, just clean it and you can see the code there, I actually got my camera out and zoomed in on the code and took a picture. Good luck!

    I just had a new key cut for my tacoma. The dealer just asked for my VIN # and cut a new key. Didn't even need to trace the old key or anything.
