Huh?? Oh yeah, right right right. I haven't really gotten too in depth with my locks....but I thought what you have pictured is all there is to it? I'm gonna have to change mine too. If there is more to it, I'm sure somebody knows.

Remove the lever and its' retainer from the old lock, and put it on the new lock. Make sure that the lever is in the correct position, if it will

mount in either direction.

Thet, thar be the trick to it.

OK, let me CLARIFY...

The prev owner had the reaer lock BROKEN INTO - therfore the piece that fits driectly on teh a$$ end of the lock cylinder is MISSING - so I dont know what it is, what it looks like or where to gittt on from...

I can get a enw cylinder but it doesnt come with the piece thats missing...

right now I have cyliner and rod -- but nothing to CONNECT the cylinder WITH the rod....

what is this piece...

how can I find one...

see the 'arm' looking thing attached to the lock cylinder -- im assuming thats whats missing --

I would get thee to a JY, sir ! They are great places to find missing and hard to find parts. Find a GM back door that has had the trim panel

removed for you, and just pluck the lock out. Voila, you win. Every time I go to the JY, I look for and take as much misc hardware as I can

swim with. "Pockets full" means time to leave and go home, so I can empty pockets into 20 year box. Nice to have stuff when you need it.

Not the greatest pic, but all I have on me right now. I can take another better one once I get home. I got it at the j/y off a '98.

Thinking about it, if I get a chance this weekend to try and install it, I should have either mine or this one's attachment left over (if they're the same from 1st to 2nd gen). I could throw it in an envelope and mail it for a buck or two, if you want. No guarantee on when I'll get around to it tho.

Ok.. I admit it. This is the first time that I actually laughed at the LOL cat.

Either the JY or the stealership is the place to go. The nice thing about GM cars is that when it comes to little knick-knacks like that, you can pretty much go to any GM service department regardless of the make and they will have the part in stock or they can get it in less than a day.

Also, before you install it you might want to get a locksmith to rekey it unless you like the added security of having a different lock on the rear door to prevent thefts/tampering while your van is in the shop or with a valet.

THanks andrew - this kinda giv es me an idea of what im looking for... its the rust 'arm' arrached to the end of the cylinder -- I wish I could see a pic form the other angle...

also I need that little plastic bushing too, but I think AZ sells that too...

What is that part called though? The 'arm'? The new cylinders dont come with that piece -- so I am assuming its called the door lock cylinder arm? :?

The reason that the new one doesn't come with a lever, or arm, and its' retainer, is b/c there is one on the old part that you need to

move to the new part. Simple as that. (OK, I know your truck is missing the "old" part, so now you need to get a new "old" part from

some source; JY, stealership, an abandoned car on the side of the road, a police impound, or a not so good friends' vehicle.

Your choice.



RR: I see you are in Phila area. I'm down the shore near LBI. We might be able to scrounge something that would work, I do have a lot of

odd parts and fasteners in my 20 year box. JYs ? Just look in the yellow pages, they are all over the place. One is usually as good as

the next. I like Pick n Pulls best, where I can go get my own stuff, plus scrounge misc stuff that is hard to come by from any other source.

Trouble is I haven't had the time to go junking for quite a while. Too busy to have any fun !

The problem is that the junk yards in Philly are all controlled by the Italian Mafia -- I will be paying for the entire back door just to get at the lock cylinder...

no other good junk yards are nearby


SO - I am going to FABRICATE the little 'arm' thats missing -- it looks like I need a 'e-clip' and a piece of flat metal and a plastic bushing thingy
