What do you need to remove in the door to access the key and handle and remove it?

Fensx, you have to pull the door panel off. Then gently peel away the plastic at that end.
Then you get to play with the linkages.

Acid, they're supposed to be the same lock. Does your key work in it?

Yes my key works in it. No they aren't suppose to be the "same" .. That is why there is a master key and a sub key in the manual and like in my Echo.. The master key does every lock where as the sub key wont work for the glove compartment and hatch. So my asumption is the 4 digit numbr found on the glove compartment cylinder is the subkey code.

Can you please give more details to how you did all this? I need to do the exact same thing. Do you think I get a small mirror in there so I can view the number without taking the cylinder out?

I believe the mirror trick won't work. It's housed, I think, I forgot lol.. was pretty easy, didn't have to remove the latches. Roll up the window, unbolt the two bolts holding down the outside handle. Then unscrew the 3 screws holding the latch that eats the striker (I couldn't find the wording) .. So now it should be loose. All you have todo is do a little play and it should come out so you'll have enough space to take off the clip that is holding the cylinder on. Once that clip is off, you will be able to see your code.

They are the "same" ;) [locks]
It's the keys that are different.
I understand what you are asking. It makes sense.

How do I remove the link from the handle? I want to replace the handle thing becaise there is a nasty part that looks like someone tried to pry the handle out hehe.

Um, you don't need any key numbers. Go to the toyota dealer. Take your registration and your license, and hand them both to them. Say the following: "I need a master key made for my car." They can make the master key or the subkey (or valet key as I always called it) from your VIN. This is, of course, assuming the lock cylinders on your car are the lock cylinders that were originally on the car when it was manufactured.

Nevermind about taking out the handle, I got it off now.
I already did that, they didn't have my code (:
