Driver side door lock not working from outside

Hi, my 1991 YJ locks and unlocks from inside on the driver side, but when i turn my key on the outside nothing happens, with the door taken apart i can see what is wrong, at least i think what is wrong.
the image on the left is my passenger side where the key works from the outside, and the door locks and unlocks from the inside (so it all works as intended)
the image on the right is my driver side door and you can see it is just missing that rod looking piece to connect from where the keys turns to the actual lock mechanism

any idea what the part is called? or where i can get it?

I am a mechanic at a jeep dealership so that's where I got it from. There is a Z shaped bracket that is on the lock cylinder and the rod hooks to it. The part number is 55026850 which is for a 94 wrangler. Not sure if the part number is the same for your model year. Quadratec may have it also.

Did it work for you before? If so I would bet you still have the bar rattling around in the bottom of your door and the plastic clips that hold it in place are broken. (Also probably in the bottom of your door) I had to replace mine also.

If you find the rod, and it's just the plastic clips that are broken, you can just put the rod back in, and with a pair of pliers, bend the ends of the rod over farther, so it never falls out. Did that with mine a few years ago, and no problems since.

I doubt someone stole it. Look in the bottom of the door.

The plastic rod retainers are notorious for cracking or breaking. I was lucky enough to locate my rod at the bottom of my half door. Too bad that's not the case for you though.

Another option to explore if you can't locate a rod is to simply pull one from a XJ in the salvage yard, lay it beside your passenger rod, and bent you a new rod. 9 times out of ten this method will work.

I had thought the same thing too, but I had refrained from saying this.
My half steel doors have locks, but I have never locked my Jeep.....yet.

If all you need is the rod and clip, make the rod from simple steel rod (use the other side as a tempate), and buy the clip (get two).
