HOW TO… "Changing a door"



  • Tools you will need

    Hammer
    Philps screw driver
    size 8 spanner or vice grips
    about 3 or 4 pillows

    Step one (REMOVING YOUR DOOR CARD)

    using your screw driver unscrew the 4 screws holding the door card in place
    A. one at the door opener/ locking mount
    B. one in the handle
    C. under the arm rest there is a small removable square you will see
    D. one at the end of the door which faves out

    Pull on the door car steadely as the pins POP out of the frame

    Step two (unhooking all wires) if ur only replacing the door only do step 3
    1. sepperate the elc. window and central locking wires (wide white box)
    2. seperate the elc. window (smaller white box)
    3. unhook main connection by opening the door and pulling back the black covering and unhooking the wire boxes

    Step three (removing the door)
    1. to make the job easier on yourself and to prevent damage to the door first remove the opening limiter.which is the small sliding metal bar half way up the inside of the door between both hindges. A thin metal bad holds this in place so using your hammer lightly knock it out.
    2. using your size 8 spanner/ vice grips remove the door from the hindges
    (try to hold the door at the normal angle and dont let it drop as you remove the nuts as you dont want to damage your door sill)

    Step four (replacing the door card)
    1. place the door card in the usual position and then replace the 4 removed screws
    2. bang around the edges as to push the mounts into place

    Step five (reconnecting all wires) if ur only replacing the door only do step 3
    1. sepperate the elc. window and central locking wires (wide white box)
    2. seperate the elc. window (smaller white box)
    3. unhook main connection by opening the door and pulling back the black covering and unhooking the wire boxes

    Step six (replacing the door)
    1.place your pillows about halt lenght of the door to
    a. hold the door at the correct height
    b. prevent the new door from being scratched
    2. first mount your bottom nut to the hinges
    3 mount your top mounts
    4. reaffix the door opening limiter

    step seven (dry run)
    1. make sure you have fastened all your nuts to the door correctly as if you have not the door will not close properly
    2. gentely close the door over till you feel it press agains the locking hoop on the inside of the door well
    3. push the door till it closes
    4. open agan and try closing the door at normal speed

    OPTIONAL!!!!!!
    (door dose not close properly)

    if the door is hanging a bit low and is slightly catching off the locking hoop
    try tightening the nuts again up on the top hinge
    Vice versa if it is too high

    if all nits are tight and the door is still catching try adjusting the door locking hoop with a hammer
    my lightly tapping it in the needed direction
    I advise only if it is needed to be moved about 1/8 of an ince either way
