Howdy Y'all,
Trying to get the old door locks out, but can't compress the springlike piece holding the cylinders from inside the door--any hints? They seem to be pretty compressed already, but not enough to remove the cylinder. I have the new Moss lock kit--trunk lock was a can of corn, but the door locks are a bit more difficult.
Thanks.
Jeff

OK, after much cajoling the driver's door lock finally came out without damaging the hole. The new one doesn't fit as snugly as I'd like, even after tapping it with a socket and mallet, but it DOES lock the door!
Now to get the pesky window channel off the glass...
