WTB: S4 door lock with keys

PostPost by: sonunet » Sat May 08, 2021 1:40 am

I’m looking for a set of door locks and the friction washers for an Elan S4. I pitched a new set from Sports Car but the quality on them aren’t good at all. So looking for a NOS set or a good takeoff.

Let me know if you have a set for sale. I’m in Denver CO.

On the new ones you bought, is the issue that the barrel has far too much end float in the housing?
I found this with a new set and, when I took them apart to investigate I found the outer housing is machined incorrectly, the actual barrel was good quality. My original housings were good so I fitted the new barrels in them and they are as good as original!
