The locking bolt is stuck on my 686(the little part mounted in the barrel lug the goes in when you open the cylender). I think it is stuck inside as is just misses the extractor rod. It is also hard to open the cylender on 2 of the chambers and I think it is tied the the stuck locking bolt. Is there a easy fix for this? Than you for any help!

I believe that what you are referring to is the ejctor rod. It is not the locking bolt. The bolt is in the frame of the pistol and indexes the cylinder. Anyway, Open the cylinder and tighten the ejector rod by hand. It is a left hand thread. That should fix your problem. Charles the Gunsmith.

It is the little part under the barrel inside the barrel lug opposit the ejector rod. It touches the end of the ejector rod(kind of helps hold it in).

If I understand you right, then your problem is that the locking bolt does not move out of the barrel lug to lock into the ejector rod, right?
It has the bolt plunger spring behind it and I can only guess that dirt or rust must inhibit its movement. I'd try soaking it in WD40 and push on it to see if you can free it.

Driving the locking bolt pin out is a bit tricky because of it's small size, but might be your last resort.

Yup the locking bolt is stuck, I can't get it to budge! I'll try the WD40 and see what happends.
