from the door. The threaded
socket for the retaining screw
can be seen at the rear of the
door cylinder. (Figure 11)
The cylinder being removed
from the door. Note that there is
no linkage to be disconnected.
The actuator passes from the rear
of the lock cylinder directly to the
latch assembly. (Figure 12)
The retaining Screw and
latch-lock socket. The actuator
is guided into the lock assembly
by a plastic cone, which also
protects the lock actuator from
any attempts at manipulation by
an “under-glass” car-opening tool.
Top and bottom views of
the door cylinder. No code
was found on this cylinder. It
would be possible to “read”
the tumblers through the drain
hole, using a reader key or
depth keys. All tumblers are
visible through the drain hole.
The tumblers in the #1 position,
not shown in the photo, can be
read by viewing the cylinder
at an angle, from the rear.
Front and rear views of the
door cylinder. The Plastic trim
piece is attached to the cylinder
assembly by two stirrup style
latches, one at the front of the
cover and the other at the rear.
Gently lift the rear latch to
disengage the trim cover and
remove it. “Thumb Pressure” is
all that is needed to disengage
the cover from the cylinder.
An “E” Clip fixes the tailpiece
to the cylinder plug. You will
notice that we have marked the
tailpiece with a Sharpie Marker,
