Just bought this 68:[email protected]

1) Drivers door will not open when I lock it and then try to unlock it. Even though the pin goes up, the door is still locked. I have to remove the pin cover and take a pair of plier and yank the pin up and down until it releases. Do I just look for a new mechanism or try to fix it myself? What exactly is the part called?

2) Both front windows go up crooked and I have to do the old grab and pull up method to get them closed straight. Same thing with the door locks, is this something fixable or do I need to buy new mechanisms and what are they called?

3) How do you remove the manual window crank handle? I suppose this would be a first step in looking into the door panel to see what's up with the windows and door lock.

Thanks for your help and hope these are not too trivial.

I am also getting a new intake manifold and dumping one of the carbs - this dual set up is not good.

I have the same problem with my 67 lock on the drivers side. It has a broken spring in the latch mechanism that i have yett to fix. Could be this is your problem also. Windows sound like they might have bad rollers and/or need adjustment and lube.


Nice looking Camaro and welcome to the site enjoy

Thanks! I will need to get in the panel to check it out. Lots of fun things to do.

1st you get a GM window clip removing tool from any parts house. Get the flat steel one and not the pliers type. Once you pull the door panel you can look in there and see what or if the window track roller has popped out. Also you can look at your lock and see what the problem is. Sometimes just pulling the door latch mechanisum out and cleaning it with solvent will loosen all the hard grease and get it working again. Good luck
