i was suprised when yesterday my 91 lebaron conv. key cylinder popped out!

i managed to wiggle it back by pushing it in and turning key clockwise, like FSM advised.
i noticed that the "pin" that is supposed to be locking the cylinder in place was missing.
i suppose i need to go and buy new cylinder. ok.

surfed rockauto.com and noticed that atleast they dont offer key cylinder to 91, only to 92 and newer?
is it different in 91.

i have new more curved dashboard that came in 91 ... (with tilt wheel and analog gauges, floor shifter 3.0automatic) otherwise plain jane model

thanks a lot!

IIRC, they are pretty much the same when it comes to the cylinder, but there may be some color/trim differences. Take the old cylinder (if possible) to Advance, AutoZone, NAPA, O'Reillys, or whatever, and see if they can match it up. Key cylinders are a pretty common off the shelf items and not that expensive. Be aware that once it snaps in-place, in order to get it out, you will need to do a little disassembly. So... if it appears to match, get it re-keyed to match your key before putting it in, unless you want to deal with 2 keys.

I just noticed from your avatar that you are from Finland, so I can see why you are going the Rock Auto route. I doubt any parts stores would carry that locally.
