The B120 diagram here is almost identical to the Coupe, except that the insulator (80504F) is not used on the other models. The part numbers are mostly the same as Coupe, except for the latch and striker.

Coupe and 2-dr Sedan latch parts are identical.

4-dr sedan parts are mostly different, but the latch itself, escutcheon, and inside door handle (remote control) is the same on front doors. The striker and door handle are different.

Drain Plugs

These drain plugs fit all Datsun 510, 1200, 620, and 280ZX. The plugs fit on the underside of the doors (2 per door). They help prevent rust by letting water out, and keeping mud from coming in.
