Default Re: HOW-TO: Replace ignition and door locks cylinders

1994
Ford Ranger V6 4.0 XLT

I've followed the process for replacing a door lock. For whatever reason I cannot remove the tab that holds in the door lock. I've used WD40 and pliers. It'll only come out so far. Tested the passenger side with the same results.

If your door has never been taken apart, the tab has been there for 25 years, so keep pulling.
WD40 plus wobbling up and down may help.
If not, take the door interior panel off and try to work it from the inside of the door.

Hope this helps!

Yup. I've done all that. Took a flathead to edge of the tab from inside and tried to push it through. No luck. Grabbed the tab from the outside with pliers and tried brute force while moving it up and down. Seems like it's stuck in something. I get the same result on the passenger side. It gets hung up on something.
