Manual Door Lock

Just a quick question about those little plastic tabs. Two of mine are broken and I would like to replace them. Where can I buy them, and is it a simple screw on/off or does the door paneling have to come down?

I'm also considering visiting a scrapyard as a plan B.



Repaired, but sketchy.

Yeah they just unscrew, shouldn't even have to take anything apart

It looks like they were chewed on lol, I didn't know they just screwed off. I have been wanting to replace mine with brushed aluminum.

They are supposed to twist off, might need to use some plyers or something to get them to budge though..

The gunk you see around the first picture is crazy glue. It held on for a few weeks. I was surprised.

Went by Kenny U-Pull and salvaged some door lock tabs and switches. Cost me $3.50 for everything.
