    Im looking to get some new doors, the owner doesn't have any keys for the. I found a set at autozone for 16 bucks. My question is what would i need to do and does anybody have any tricks to make this alot easyer to do.


    Thanks
    Ben

    Hmm, I've replaced a few locks in other cars, and you needed the key to get the lock disengaged from the car door. I haven't tried in on a GM though. Good luck.

    I'm just saying maybe. In my old vw, you had to turn the key and hold some other latch to get the tumbler out. It might be different with GM stuff though, I haven't tried it.

    Reach inside the door and remove a clip then remove lock cylinder assembly, now do the reverse to install the new lock assembly.

    4X4hIGH'S right. There is a small retaining clip on the lock inside the door. Pull that off and the whole lock cylinder will come off. Really easy.

    If this is for a square body chevy you don't need a key to change it out.... You'll need to remove the door panel, reach inside with a screw driver to remove the clip (this is not easy to remove they are tight), you'll then need to play with the end that is in-side the door to get the end off fo the pivet point, and just reverse to reinstall....

    If you need any help I live in Mesa, AZ... and if you don't want the old locks I could use them...

    its for a 82. i well have 2 sets. the ones on my 82 probaly wont do you any good. the pasengerside wont unlock from outside or inside ( probaly the hudge f'in dent) the drivers side wont unlock from outside. The doors im pickin up have locks but they have no key, you make the call, and im not sure how you could get them. i dont have a liscense yet. just recieved the old family truck and it needs a bit of touche up.

    ~edit~
    My step mom can ship stuff for free from work so there you go, Id have to ask her permission first but i sapose it wont be to bad.
