98 Forester Door Lock - Dealer only???
Posted 16 November 2012 - 04:11 PM
I can't find any replacement locks at the local parts stores - does anyone know if this is a dealer only part? It really doesn't seem like it should be - aren't the locks a standard size?

long term you are going to happier if you get the matching ignition cylinder as well. or have the new lock keyed to your existing ignition key.

My door 'tabs' where the lock sits were a little bent but I was able to straighten them with some curved needle nose and then pushed on them with the old lock in place...and some graceful hammer taps.
I also grabbed another stock stereo and slapped it in to refill that void.
Now it's rockin AND lockin....
