I WOULD apply a thin layer of anti-seize on the threads of the new lock cylinder and run the nut on it and make sure you have a film of this anti-seize on it when you go to put it the event you need to take it would be easier. Some may want to use candle wax, grease or Vasoline on the it is up to you. And IF you do lubricate the do not have to tighten the crap out of it and almost chip your teeth while doing it. Just get it tight enough so it will not move if you plan on using it.

Common sense dictates that you are aslo watchful on getting any lubricate all over the place and back on your clean it does not need to be dripping with a lubricate...which is why I wrote...a thin layer.

Ok...after an hour in the abyss, alll DONE!!! Canít thank you all enough.

Now itís on to removing the alarm horn assembly...looks like I have to remove the muffler and maybe some other stuff to get to the horn but since this is really the first thing Iíve done successfully to my car, I am STOKED! Thanks again!
