What's this part called?

After Finally 2 years of working on my Jeep I've started the process of finally fixing the minor issues with it. One issue is that the passenger side door lock is missing a linkage that lets you lock with the key, I went on a Google spree but I couldn't find an exact name for it, couldn't find it on any aftermarket sites. (since I don't know the name)

Looks to be part of an assembly.
Even Chrysler didn't name each rod.
Most are marked as "rod" with a part number following.

It's a dikfer.

In all seriousnous, you'll probably have to go to a junkyard to find that part. They don't normally wear out or break, so nobody usually reproduces them.

I would look for the plastic clips or an alternative. You can get a metal dowel in that size and bend it yourself with a vise or even vicegrips. The plasic retainers are going to be the hardest part however I bet there are tons of cars that use that clips and still do so it shouldnt be as hard to find

Napa carries the plastic clips in a Dorman "Help" pack on the shelf, you can get GM, Ford or Chrysler specific or a multi-pack. I'd just a piece of rod and bend it as needed.

The linkage rod is question is called "Lock Cylinder Rod". It's Jeep P/N 55026850 or 04797152, unfortunately it's NLA from Jeep. So you're gonna have to look for a used one on Ebay or a junk yard. You could also make your own. I measured a spare one I have laying around and it's 5/32" in diameter and 2.9" center to center.

The clips are P/N J4004532 or 04658677. These can still be purchased. If you can get OEM ones, do it. I've had bad luck with the longevity of the Dorman clips.

I’ve bought clips from CSEoffroad.com before. That’s the easy part
