Mine is a on a 1990 BB. It has an assembly that is held into the door by 4 screws. Mine is basically a giant "D" Ring, Which twists and locks to the other half of the door. It has a little lock tumbler that stops it from twisting when locked. I did not have factory keys, so i took the mechanism out to have lock smith find a new tumbler, and they were able to just whip out a new key instead. Does yours not have a factory lock of some type??
