NO it can't.There is a hole at the edge of the handle and a spring loaded pin(on the lock cyl) in it .The key has to be turned 90 degrees to be able to depress it ,then the lock cyl can be removed.You need a key or someone that can pick the lock.32Phil on this site can assist you.

The cylinder can be drilled out destroying the cylinder, without damage to the handle.

32Phil has not been on the HAMB since Nov 3. I tried to contact him a month ago and no response. I hope he is OK.

Hi Guys
Thank You for the concern Andy.
I made the mistake of buying a new computer.....
It's been a wild ride since...... to say the least !!!
I will be leaving for Florida in early January sooooo
Early Ford Lock & Key service is on hold till April.
The good news is everyone's locks/keys etc. have been mailed out.
I will still be available for phone questions/help on my cell 845 551 5132.
Enjoy the Holidays...……... see ya at the car shows in Florida !!!
Phil
