04 civic - manual locks

My keys seems to get stuck before being fully into the driver side door lock. So I try a bunch of times before it goes in smoothly then it unlocks no problem. Even times when it starts resisting the key but it seems all the way in, it won't turn. I know it is not the key because passenger side and trunk works fine.

In the link it shows #2 as the lock assembly, but I think it may be the lock cylinder. If it was the assembly, wouldn't the key go in nice and smooth but just won't unlock the door?

Don't need a reply.

Went ahead and bought the lock and replaced it. Fixed the problem great.
