I'm looking at a 92 SE-R right now that I'd like to purchase. It has a few problems that are annoying that I'd like to have fixed after getting the car. I just wanna know a ballpark amount as to how much it'll cost to get everything fixed. Would also like to know how hard it is to do this work myself.

1) Driver side door lock - The key won't work in the lock. If unlocked from the inside, the door opens as normal. The owner says it's the lock cylinder itself that's bad. That's all I know about it.

2) Busted rear tail light - The leftside rear tail light has a busted lens cover (the leftmost yellow section is gone). I assume I'll have to replace the entire module?

3) Trunk release - The interior trunk release lever doesn't release the trunk latch. The gas cover release still functions. Thinking a cable might be loose or broken or something.

4) Right Side Mirror Broken - Glass is busted. Housing looks fine. Can I replace just the glass or will I have to replace the whole thing?

That's about it. The car looks and runs great otherwise at 84K miles. Asking price is $2800. Does that sound fair?
Looking foward to joining yall in loving these cars :)

Thanks for the tip about the Nissan junkyard. The plan was to hit the junkyards anyway. Didn't know there was one that specializes in Nissans.

The trunk works with the key, just not the interior trunk release lever. So it's the cable then?

And yep, the engine runs smooth, and the tranny is in good order now. Owner had 5th gear popout, but spent a grand to overhaul the tranny and it's all good now.

I might join your yahoo groups once i get my se-r. Might be fun to meet some other bay area nissan guys :)


edit: Oh btw, If I replaced the bad lock, wouldn't it be keyed differently and I couldn't use my old key to open the lock? Having 2 keys for one car would suck. I was thinking maybe I could just swap out the passenger side lock (works fine) with the driver's side. That way at least I don't have to crawl in the car from the passenger side. And I'd hardly ever unlock the passenger side with the keys anyway.... just a thought
