Removal and installation

1 Remove the door trim panel (see Section 13). Disconnect any electrical connectors and push them through the door opening so they won't interfere with removal.

2 Position a jack or axle stand under the door or have an assistant on hand to support the door when the hinge bolts are removed. Note: If a jack or stand is used, place a rag between it and the door to protect the door's paint.

3 Remove the door check strap bolt (see illustration).

4 Scribe around the door bolts to aid refitting.

5 Remove the hinge-to-door bolts and carefully detach the door (see illustration). Refitting is the reverse of removal.
