Jammed front door lock

I am having a problem with a seized Drivers side (RHD) front door lock. It is a 1994 E36 320I sedan and doesn't have a chipped door key, and the key is the only way to lock or open the doors. The door has jammed the lock cylinder and cannot be turned one way or the other, therefore I cannot lock the door and becomes a security issue. The passenger door lock works well and will lock/unlock all other locks on the car except right hand drivers door. Any useful suggestions would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance

By lock cyclinder are you refering to the tumbler the key inserts into? Its possible to remove it and correct the problem that way.

Yes, that the was the part I meant. Got it sorted thanks, fired a squirt of CRC 556 into key hole and inserted the key a few times. Must have been a hung up tumbler. Cheers
