REMOVAL & INSTALLATION



See Figures 1 and 2

For vehicles with manual locks, the lock cylinder is held within the door by a clip which slides across the back of the cylinder, or by two retaining bolts and a bracket, depending on the model.

On vehicles with electric locks, the left door lock has a collar surrounding it. This electrical fitting causes all the doors to lock when the key is used in the driver's door. The retainer on this switch may be opened by prying up the plastic catch; the switch may then be removed from the lock cylinder.

  1. Remove the clip or the retaining bolts.
  2.  
  3. Disconnect the lock rod(s) from the lock cylinder.
  4.  
  5. Remove the lock.
