If you own a First Generation, Fox Body, or other late-model Ford Mustang, it is likely that you are extremely proud of your pony car and that you are eager to spend your hard-earned money upgrading your vehicle. In addition to the body & sheet metal, many Ford owners turn their attention to the Mustang interior in order to further personalize their cars.
While it might be fun to install new seats, a new radio, and other interior modifications, all of your aftermarket upgrades will not be safe if your Mustang locks are not in order. Ford Mustang locks allow you to maintain a stylish Mustang interior, without having to worry about any of your valuable possessions and interior parts being stolen.
Your muscle car is loaded with various locks. Mustang locks are present on every side door, the passenger lid, and sometimes the glove box. The inner workings of Mustang door locks are located on the side of the doors about halfway up from the floor. Every time you turn the key to lock or unlock your Ford Mustang doors, the metal piece that is lodged inside the door activates the rest of the Mustang lock parts, which enables you to enter your vehicle. Speaking of turning keys, though push-starts have become one of the latest trends in the automotive world, the majority of Mustang drivers still use a key to start the ignition.
In order to operate the ignition and unlock the Mustang doors, Ford drivers must turn a key inside a lock cylinder. Because only a fraction of it is visible on the outside, it is easy for rust and damage to the Mustang door lock cylinders to go unnoticed. Having broken or worn out Mustang door lock cylinders can not only prevent you from being able to enter your pony car, but could also inflect severe internal damage upon your doors. If you are having any long-standing difficulties with your factory Mustang locks, it would be wise to replace them as soon as possible.
