Change a door lock?

Is it difficult?  I am quite practical and happy to have a go, but am nervous in case I need a special tool, or if a spring will go ping.

Depends, replacing with the same sort is no problem. Doing somthing like fitting a mortice lock in a door that has had only surface mounted locks is lots more work but not difficult to do. No special tools needs.

Yep, same one.  Really can do without paying for a locksmith   .

I bought a replacement barrel lock tried, failed, rang locksmith, he really kindly told how to do it, then I did it literally in 3 minutes!!!  So sorted!  Well chuffed.  Not being able to lock the door from the inside this week has been a right pain!
