To replace the door lock cylinders, do I need to remove the black trim strip on the door skin?

It appears that it does not have to come off but I've also discovered that whoever removed the lock originally, (it was missing when I got the car), had no idea what they were doing and the result is a messed up inner door panel and no locking clip or lever for the cylinder as well as no clip for the rod to cylinder lever. The dummies also decided that the moisture barrier was optional, good thing this car stays inside! Now I have to figure out which parts will interchange with an 85 Fiero, This really sucks!

I do know that the outside door handles interchange with the Camaro so maybe the other things do also

As you probably have figured out the lock is all done from the inside.

So I need one of those cylinder clips, one of those levers on the back side of the cylinder, and the rod clip for the drivers side. May have to call the Fiero Store tomorrow!

Just go to any junkyard. Almost any GM of any year will fit (up to 90s probably). Yard will prob give it to you or charge a dollar...and you dont have to pay shipping. I have a drawer full of them, but it would cost you shipping anyway if I gave them to you.

I would buy them from you if you wanted to sell them. By the time I get off work it's too late to go wrecking yard running and these guys give nothing away!

I can send you a few assorted GM locks with arms, retainer clips and some rod clips. Rods themselves are specific for cars, but you can bend your own. I dont have keys for any of the locks so if you use the lock itself, you need to have it rekeyed or a key made for it. $6.00 shipping for all in a small box. No charge for the parts. You can pm me for address.
