Door Latch Springs

Recommended Posts

Is there an easy way to replace the upper and lower springs in the door latch? also the remote door handle spring. I am looking for a source for the spring keeper, the hole is 1/4 in square. Everything is installed with rivets.Will I be forced to drill out everything and find new rivits. Thanks all again

I think I went through this one time on my '38 Conv. Coupe. Pulled into a show and closed the driver door and "BAM" , the spring broke.  The door would not close

and stay closed. Removed the lock mech.  and purchased the spring from one of the venders( Mac's, Carpenter. ) I think they are color codeed. Yes, you will have

to grind off rivets. Good Luck

Thank's Larry;  kinda what I expected, replaced the remote handle spring by opening the tabs and fortunately they did not break. I am thinking of changing all the springs that way  everything inside the doors all will be new. Thanks again
