Hi Guys
The weather seal section on the outside of the door lock has broken, leaving a large ugly hole visible.
Can anything be done to these locks or do you replace them?

I've siliconed a stainless steel washer in the hole...fits neatly and is the correct sized hole in the centre so you can still fit your key in if need be. If you do this, get some needle nose pliers and remove the fine spring that will probably still be sitting in the opening, otherwise the washer won't sit flat. You should be able to get the washers at a bolt shop...hardware stores don't usually carry that size.
