I've put my door locking mechanism back on today. I think I've done it correctly but I can't seem to get the key out when the door is locked. The key doesn't seem to turn all the way. I'm not sure the interior locking part is moving enough either way also if that makes sense.
Any ideas? It's a 1995, the door isn't currently on the car. I haven't put the other lock on yet but when I lock this one, the key wont come out either?

The exterior lock interrupts the release button on the door handle. I wouldn't expect the interior mechanism to interfere with it in a way that would stop you removing the key as you're starting in a resting position to get they key in and once you've released any stress that's flexing the the operating rods it should return to rest.
You should be able to test the main function in stopping the button press with the handle removed. Also try tripping the door latch to simulate the door being shut on the car.
The operating rods do flex more without a door card to restrain them, so you may find you have to assist them in operating the interior controls.

You are turning the key back to the upright position before trying to remove it?

I'm actually missing a small part of the lock from the other door. It's a small black metal retaining clip. Does anyone know if these are available to buy? I'm not sure what to search for and can't find one online. I'll try and attach a picture. It's the black part top middle Under the silver lever.
