Question about 1972 Chevrolet Corvette
The early model GM lock cylinders a re a little different than the 80's and 90's. If you have a replacement lock, you will see a small black spring loaded bar on the side of the cylinder housing. that is what holds the lock in place.
to remove it, most times you need to punch through the cast housing in the correct spot to depress that bar. Once you press the bar correctly, the lock simply slides out. the new one will slide in and lock in place by itself.
Here are the instructions and a picture to help you accomplish that.
Let me know if you have any more trouble.
