Default Glovebox Lock/lever

the lever to open the glovebox broke on my 1993 SE, and I need to know if the lock keyway is key specific, or if any latch/lock assembly will do.

Thanks,
Andrew

(I will have pics of what I am talking about tomorrow)

I would think that is a Dealer issue, but you could easily get another one at the Junk yard and add the key for that lock to your key ring.

good luck

Yes, they are key specific.

Nice thing is since you have the old one, you can get a new box and swap the key cylinder over to retain your current lock.

Oh they are still sleeping and I'm at work.. By noonish you should have an answer. I think it'* probably a simple slide clip. Usually not much to them.

To remove the lock cylinder, insert the key and turn it as far as it can go to the left (counterclockwise) and then press-in the metal tab on the back (for example, using a small screwdriver) to release the internal latch mechanism and then turn the key a little more to the left and pull it out.
