Icon4 92 Ford Ranger Door Lock replacements , where?

92 Ford Ranger door lock replacements : where do I find them and what do they look like? I have seen 2 different types online and am now quite confused. I just got a 1992 Ford Ranger 2 door 2.3L XLT today and the now previous owner never bothered to get this dealt with to manually lock and unlock from the outside. There is no wiring from what I have seen for an electric door lock on this truck ! This is my very first posting on this forum and I know quite well it won't be my last !!
Thanks !

Welcome to the forum

I assume you are talking about the key cylinders, they come in Chrome or Black.
You will need a set that fits 1989-1992 Ranger.

Put window all the way up
Remove door panel
You can see/feel a metal rod attached to the back of the lock cylinder, pull it off, might be a clip holding it, save it
In the door jamb where cylinder would be on the other side of the metal panel you will see a metal clip, slide it out toward you, that will release the cylinder and you can pull it out from the outside of the door.
On some there is a metal ring on the cylinder holding it against the door, you need to use a smaller screw driver to wiggle it back enough to remove it.
There is a Left(driver) and Right(Pass.) Door for these, so mark them.

A locksmith can sometimes rekey them.

You can also buy a Lock set that includes a new ignition key cylinder so doors and ignition use the same keys, or a locksmith can rekey ignition cylinder to match door keys.
Ignition key cylinder is very easy to swap out, just push a button under steering column

Found these on ebay: http://www.ebay.com/itm/NEW-PAIR-FOR...Model%3ARanger

You would have to determine if they would be the right ones
