[Healeys] BJ8 door lock

The same thing just recently happened to me. The bolt that goes through the latch bar had come undone from the lock tumbler. The lock tumbler is held in by the bolt that holds the the latch bar to the lock / latch button on the door handle mechanism. The order should be bolt, spring washer, flat washer, latch bar, nut, spring washer, lock tumbler. You have to take the inner door panel off and raise the window to get to the door latch mechanism. Without the bolt being secured in the back, the tumbler will still stay in, as long as you don’t put your key in it.
