Q: Door Lock Assy
Is there a difference for the door latch assy betweent the years and no difference between standard and custom interior?
A: The Door Latch Assy was different for all (3) years on the 1st Generation Firebird. This was actually referred to as the “Door Lock Assy”. You are correct; there was no difference between the Lock Assy for Custom or Std. Trim. There was however, a difference between the inside Handle Remote Control (Latch Release Mechanism) as well as the Link Rod for this for the Cust. & Std. Trim Option.
From what you describe, it sounds as if you may have a defective Lock (Latch) Assy or, they are from another type of vehicle. Be sure you have the correct Lock Assy and O/S Handle & Button Assy for your specific car.
