I think the shop manual supplement has exploded views of this...can scan later, but as said, there are clips that hold them to the lock cam lever, hard to find, but many parts vans around, start asking! But I'm sure a working replacement can be made from something...the hardest thing is getting hands inside the door to get to them! Also use an inspection mirror to look at your other doors to see how they attach, front and side should be the same, L + R.

On the topic of side door locks... Anyone else's cargo door locks rattle like crazy? The rods and the latch at the top of my cargo doors vibrate incessantly the moment I start up the motor. I was thinking I might be able to attach a thin plastic washer or rubber band on the rod clips to keep them from rattling around. But I'm not sure how to stop the top latch from moving around. There isn't more than 1/16 of an inch of play so not much room to work with. Anyone have any suggestions?

Gm used some fabric looking material that slid over the rods-prevented rattles inside the doors.You might also try some thin hose like fuel line or vac tubing that could slide over the rods or be cut to fit over then & secure with a tie wrap??

Fabric, interesting. All of the noise in my doors is coming from the top latch and at the bottom of the rods, where they connect to the lock mechanism. The fabric or tubing may help, but I will still need something to tame the top latch... I'll post if I come up with anything that works

...make sure the wedge side on the ends of the rods faces out to suck the doors in when you turn the handles,,,the vans did come with anti rattle clips that sit down in the square holes the rods go into,,,,,

Similar to the tube or fuel line idea, I put some plastic split type wire wrap around them, that helped a lot. Then before I paneled, I stuffed some scraps of fiberglass insulation in the doors around the rods and shimmed the top holes with a small aluminum L clip epoxied to the striker hole, stopped all rattle and the doors close tight. The original clips Doni mentioned were long gone, they rust away. I saw over at VCVC some one is selling new striker kits with optional anti rattle clips made from spring steel like the originals. But this won't stop the rods from rattling against the door, wrap them.

Yeah, here's what's left of my rattle clips:

Sounds like the rod wrapping is the way to go. Thanks all.
