91' Nissan Pickup door lock question

45

Asked by Feb 02, 2014 at 08:42 PM about the 1991 Nissan Pickup

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My doors will not lock from the outside with the key. The interior manual lock works
fine, up and down, but when I use the key on the key hole outside no go. So I took the
door panel off to see what was up. The piece I pulled out was attached to the key
mechanism inside the door, but not to the rod that goes up and down to lock (should
have taken pictures to explain). Anyway, I am really trying to find the replacement part
for this part I took out. Does anyone know?

Spray the key holes full of penetrating oil and put on key too. Insert key and work left to tight until it starts working.

that is kind of what I was thinking dandyoun. tuff4x4, the problem is not that the key will not turn, it is the actual mechanism inside the door that is attached to the key hole. The photo is of the mechanism. It pulls a rod up and down to lock and unlock. That little white piece slides up and down on this mechanism, and is broken or something and is supposed to attach to the rod that goes up and down to lock and unlock the door.

Yes and I don't think you can buy just the plastic clips. Like dandy said try the junk yards. You will have to buy the whole mechanism.
