Lock Cylinder

Recommended Posts

Is your lock cylinder missing or merely not keyed the same as your other locks?  If the former, I'm sure someone has a derelict door handle (corroded, damaged etc) with a serviceable lock cylinder they'd part with.  Then you can re-key it--either yourself (not terribly difficult) or have a locksmith do it.


If the latter, see above.  Not difficult to re-key a door lock cylinder to match your ignition key.   Let us know your situation and we can explain re-keying procedures further if you need 'em.

Anyone have any old door handles i can buy?  i only need the door lock cylinder as my driver side door cylinder is broken.  The end of it looks like it has sheared off.  Think the cylinder will need to be replaced. 



90% sure I have a couple in the garage.

Yes door locks are on my long list of needs for my new project, a 68 1600 that has good working ignition key but very stubborn door locks. Wondering if the number stamed on the back of the door handle, believe the bottom of the quare part, is this 5 digit number the key code number? Picked up pre cut keys with the lock number but recall it was from a number off a sticker that the po had put in his owners manual, any truth to this distant memory?
