trunk lock cylinder question
#1
How is the retaining clip held in for the trunk lock cylinder? Mine fell out and I don't see how it is held in place.

IIRC, and I'm not saying I do, the 72s and 73s were held in with a single rivet. Does the clip and/or the trunk lid have a 1/8" hole in it. The reproduction clip I've seen assume they are the same from 71 through 73.
I can't get to my car right now to check. Chuck

71 and some early 72's use a standard door lock clip
You reach in and push it on
If you have a slot on the inner lip of your trunk lid 72 and 73 style.
The clip slide in from the outside and gets locked in with two rivets.
I have either clip if you need one

Thanks Don for posting the complete and accurate information. My memory, like several other parts, just isn't what it once was.Smile Chuck

Yep. I'm missing the little bar with the 2 holes for the rivets.
