Trunk lock repair project.
The Maxima changed keyways in mid-1982, going from the older X6/X7 to the newer X123.
Carimbo's '82 is apparently some hybrid. His truck lock was vandalized last year. I've been working on assembling a replacement from new parts.
ASP B-16-105 is the part No. for what is supposed to be the correct trunk lock for Carimbo's 1982 Sedan. However, it has both the wrong tailpiece and the wrong stop tab on the lock housing.

Replacement tailpiece ASP P-16-367 is closer, but centre hole must be made larger (I used a Dremel) and slots slightly filed to fit end of lock core. Worse, a lot of clearancing work is needed to allow the tailpiece to fit over the housing tab and turn 90°.
Finally, the lock housing that worked is an ASP B-16-108 (complete lock, disassemble to use the housing) or B-16-205 (unassembled lock, no wafers). Applications for this lock housing seem to include 1989-94 240SX Coupe trunk (not Hatchback), 1987-90 Sentra Sedan trunk (not Coupe).
At this point, the recipe for this particular trunk lock with the X123 keyway is to use:
- Core ("plug") from B-16-105 lock assy., or perhaps plug-only B-16-305;
- Housing from B-16-205 unassembled lock kit;
- Tailpiece P-16-367 with modifications as above.
Carimbo is going to try to mount up the new lock when the weather clears a bit, and see if it works.
