Full steel door locks; where to get a new set??

Hi,

My drivers side door lock just disintegrated on me [img]images/graemlins/cussing.gif[/img] and now I can't even get the key in anymore. Did a search on-line, but can't seem to find replacements.. Any of you know where and if replacements are available anywhere??

4WD Hardware has them, as do most of the biggies. Search for "door hardware" or "hard door parts"

Also, this place seems to sell nearly every hard door part:

I like Krage Motorsports www.jeepdoc.com for that kind of thing (Smaller parts that are hard to find anywhere else.) They have great prices and quick shipping at reasonable rates.

Re: Full steel door locks; where to get a new set?

older ford door locks are a good alternative. remove yours and take it to the parts store and match it up. we put ford door locks on my buddys 84 cj7 with the full steel doors. cost was about $10.. only downside is you have to hang an extra key on you ring. seems to me i had to grind off a nub on the lock body to make it work, but the dollars saved made it well worth it.

have to hang an extra key

3. And have the cylinder re-keyed to your OEM key.

Re: Full steel door locks; where to get a new set?

Thanks all for your replies... Just took the lock out and prized the front cover plate off. Managed to get all the parts back in place again although ideally the lock needs replacing. I didn't know the locks were that commonly available so I rung my local dealer and he's got them on the shelf for 10 each. I'll just replace both locks to avoid having to walk around with any more keys than nessecary.

B.t.w. while I had the door panel off I noticed that the connecting rod that goes from the door paddle all the way down and back up again (U shaped) has a guide. This is a plastic sleeve over the rod with a strip of metal clipped around it. Now surely this should be attached to the door frame somewhere and it looks as if it has sheared off somewhere?? Does anybody know how and where this is supposed to be attached??

See arrow in pic below...

1. Is this the part?
2. I think it should be brazed the rear window slide.

Yep Larry, that is the part.... That one in your piccie seems to be dangling in the bottom as well just like mine.... But if it is brazed, why would the part be available seperately in the exploded view above??

Because this part is loose, sometimes when you open the door via the paddle handle, the u-rod gets jammed as it can move around...

Re: Full steel door locks; where to get a new set?

I just replaced a broken door handle and the guide for the connecting rod is broken, as well. If you reach into the door you can probably feel the other part that it broke off of. At least mine is this way. I'd like to know how to fix this, too. For now, I just wrapped a piece of velcro (the loop part) around the rod to minimize the noise from slapping against the inside of the door. [img]images/graemlins/confused.gif[/img]
