Alright, I recently bought a 1986fiero gt, and I'm in love with it. There's a few imperfections though... One being I don't have a key for the doors. I had to source a deck lid lock setup .. the ignition works fine. I have a set of lock cylinders, but would rather not take apart the doors to replace them. Is there a way to get new keys made for them, without removing the cylinders? Locksmith type stuff? If it comes down to it and I need to pull the cylinders.. does anybody have a link for a detailed walkthrough, as well as a lost of clips I'll need to replace?

The "Search" function is your best friend for such matters. Do a search on "door lock".

So now you have 3 locks with 2 different keys Ignition, door, deck lid?

Change the locks if you already have them, you can get keys made for the locks you don't have the keys for but I am almost positive they have to be removed, although I did see a tool locksmiths have for retaining the locks pins position, once you pick them, at least I think that was what the tool did. If that is right all the guy would have to do is cut the keys after he picked the lock, but again I think that was what the tool was for, not sure.

Best bet and what I have done is bring the locks into the locksmith and have them make you a key, or install all the new locks.

OK, here it is: http://www.fiero.nl/forum/A...050818-2-059352.html

TWENTY-SEVEN steps beginning with removing the inner door panel....enough to make one rethink replacing the lock cylinder!

Good luck!

Different tune, same dance.

Is it possible to get ignition keys for our old cars cut using the VIN ?

I just got a new key made for my doors and trunk. I took the car to a competent, old-fashioned locksmith, I don't have a clue how they did it, but they stuck some tools in the lock, went back in the shop, made some noise, handed me two new, perfectly functioning keys, and said "$30, please."

Sounds like the tool I was reading about in that locksmith site I was on.

Door locks how to on my site, admittedly not for an 88 but probably very similar.,

Anything I might say is probably worth what you paid for it, so treat it accordingly!

You changed two door locks in one hour?

Hey we only had 1 min. to do it on the line so I can believe it, but he must have had some really good luck, I think when I did mine on my 86 SE it took just a little bit more but close to an hour.

But that's obviously from someone with the right tools and knowhow, now someone like you with those short little arms it may take longer.

edit to add, yes the outside should have some number stamped in them that are also the codes for the original locks when they were installed, if they have not been changed, we would get the sets in a bag with how ever many locks and a double set of keys in each lock if I remember right, but it has been over 20 years since I did that job, so I could be wrong.
