  • Door lock

    My passenger side door lock has not worked since I bought the car. By not working I mean the lock mechanism inside the car is stuck in the up position. I removed the lock cylinder and lubed it and all the mechanism inside the door but no luck. I am going to take it apart again but I am wondering where I should look for the likely culprit in the mechanism. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Is the small pivot spring still there?

      I attached a diagram of the mechanism. Where exactly is the pivot spring supposed to be located, I don't see it. I also attached the link to the picture. Thanks http://www.carpartsmanual.com/datsun...gulator-handle

        Hi Colin,
        Sorry for the time lapse.
        The lock assembly 3 or 4 has a wee small spring that is near the edge very close to where that arrow is pointing. it pivots one way or the other depending on the rod position.
