I wasn't given door keys for my van so I'm swapping cylinders. I already did the front doors, Problem is, on the back door there's nothing that the cylinder would tie into. There's nothing on the inside of the door that would allow you to lock or unlock the door, so I'm at a loss as to how the cylinder would function.

You are missing the upper & lower actuator rods that are connected to that . When you push in the thumb part of the door handle it turns just like yours but the rods that actuate the upper & lower locking mech are gone.

Thanks. I knew it had to be missing something since there was no physical lock on the inside of the door. I'll have to make something work.

Thanks again

Go to a junk yard n pull those rods out of a door.

You will see how to take out & know how to reinstall...

Practice on there vans not yours !

Remove the whole assy, 4 screws on the bottom of the door & 2 bolts on the top of the door, 3 bolts to remove that lock assy you have & the whole assy comes out.

How does that unlock the locking clips at the top & bottom of the door ?


OOOOOhhhhh I just realized you have a 77 .... all I saw was G30 .... so your driver rear door clips to the van & the pass rear door locks onto the driver rear door ? You may not have the upper & lower locking clips on the pass rear door as mine does.

Things changed in '88, SRY for the mis info.

That pic was from a '93 factory service manual.

The passenger door locks into the top and bottom, not into the driver side door. Pushing the button on the handle opens the latch and allows the door to open, so my work around was to stop the action that allows the latch to open.
