Default Reliable mechanic on the southside

Hi, a passenger door on my car needs a new lock for the NCT as it's seized (failed it but no re-test fee).
Does anyone here know a reliable mechanic on the southside who would do it for a reasonable price? Preferably Bandon road/Glasheen/Lough/Wilton area.
Thanks.

x2 and a gent to boot. Old school real mechanic.

Hendersons on Marina are a pretty decent bunch too and don't hand out la la bills.

John flood barrack st, Con Murphy the lough, Powell Motors forge hill, Ballinlough motors, Mark Murphy Motors douglas, Des Golden sarsfield. Alan O'Riordan Motors vicars rd and Ardfallen Motors Ballycurreen. All listed are on the southside and have excellent standards...

Not sure about others experience but imo stay away from D Canny Garage, have had a recent experience with them servicing my car and they tried overcharging me by hundred percent on their original quite substantial quote (double the price quoted) for the work, that dropped on challenging it. Now two weeks later the work they have done is failing drastically and they wont stand over it and on taking the car to another mechanic turns out some of the work they charged for was not completed. A bunch of gangsters.

I wouldn't normally name and shame but the contempt this outfit have shown is a disgrace.
