One of the small springs inside the original drivers side latch broke, so it doesn't spring open when activated by outside handle. Inside handle wont even open the door latch.
Anyway......1980 and 1981 seem to be unique with a "loop" for the inside sliding door lock/unlock, that is not present on the latches I've found.
Any sources?

Thanks

I think they are hard to come by. I think I’ve read where most folks convert to the later pop-up style but I’ve not investigated it much.

I ended up using one from a 1990 Mustang and cutting the "loop" off my old one and welding it to the Mustang one. Works great now.
The Mustang latch should work on 1982 and up without modification. My doors have manual sliding lock/unlock just under the arm rest
