Need help with lock linkage, regular locks, not power.

In photo below, need to know where the linkage hooks to. Mine is just hanging down.



This next image is what mine looks like.





Thank you.

It hooks to a" arm" on the Door LATCH that you show no picture of. there will be another rod coming from the inside Lock button( the slider with red on it)

Nope, it doesn't. it goes straight forward to a swivel bracket about 10" ahead. There is a LINK on another thread here (a few threads down from this saying power window woes". look at the link (Michigan something) it has pictures

I saw where the rod connected on the lock assembly, was not able to keep it hooked up as the clip was missing. I removed the rod as its been a source of a anoying rattle.

I will try to find some replacement clips & give it a try again at a later time. Anyone have an idea where these clips can be found ?

to keep the rod from falling out, use a small plastic wire bundle tie. Hook it through the other hole and around the rod. When you pull it tight, it will not come off. I did this a few months ago when the door lock wasn't working.

Good luck! Jimmy

Hmm, not a bad idea for the one side near the key, my problem was on the latch side. It was hard to see if a tie-wrap would fit there. Anyone know if it would ?

With my large hands, it's hard to work in that area. Is the latch assembley removeable ? If it is, I might have a better chance of connecting the rod to the latch side.

Found this pic from another thread, shows the latch where the rod needs to go.
