New replacement doors for past model years have a larger lock cylinder hole diameter. A loose fit will occur when installing the door lock cylinder. The lock cylinder mounting hole diameter in new doors has been increased in preparation for a new style lock cylinder. New locks will be phased in for future production.
Install a spacer for the larger diameter door lock cylinder mounting hole. Refer to the following Service Procedure for details.
|NOTE:||THE DOOR LOCK CYLINDER SPACER HAS BEEN ADDED TO CERTAIN 1996 MODEL YEAR VEHICLES TO ELIMINATE THE LOOSE FIT CONDITION FROM THE SMALLER DOOR LOCK CYLINDER. SOME VEHICLES MAY BE BUILT WITH SPACERS ON ONE SIDE ONLY. THIS IS DUE TO THE BALANCE OF SUPPLIES OF RIGHT AND LEFT DOORS AT THE ASSEMBLY PLANTS AT THE TIME OF MODEL YEAR CHANGEOVER.|
DOOR LOCK CYLINDER INSTALLATION/REMOVAL
- Whenever the door lock cylinder is removed, check for presence of lock cylinder spacer in the door in the lock hole. If one is present, check for damage and replace if necessary.
- If replacement is necessary, refer to the Lock Spacer Usage Chart (Figure 1) for proper part number application.
Figure 1 – Article 95-24-4
- Snap a new spacer into the hole from outside the door (Figure 2).
Figure 2 – Article 95-24-4
DOOR OR LIFTGATE INSTALLATION/REMOVAL
When replacing the door of liftgate assembly, the new door or liftgate may have the larger lock cylinder hole. Measure the hole diameter (Figure 2). If dimension “X” is more than 24mm, then a spacer is required. If it is less than 24mm, then a spacer cannot be used.
NOTE: EVEN IF THE ORIGINAL DOOR HAS A SPACER, ONE IS NOT NEEDED IF THE “X” DIMENSION IS LESS THAN 24mm IN THE NEW DOOR.
GENERAL INFORMATION REGARDING SPACER USAGE
The purpose of the spacer is to allow the flexibility of phasing in future lock designs without having to coordinate doors and locks in production or having to maintain two unique service doors. In general, the spacers are to be used with new doors (large hole) and old locks. The new doors are being phased in ahead of the new locks.
