Removing and repairing inner door workings...help


Recommended Posts

Ok, you will need to remove the little round disc at the bottom of the door(that is the window stop). You wil need to remove the 4 screws from the door latch. You will then remove the screws from the outer door handle and pull it out(might be tough from rust). The outside door handle is actually a piece of 1/4" keystock that goes through the latch mechanism and if crusty might be hard to pull out. You also need to remove the lock, that is the clip in the door jam area. Pull clip out slighty and then pull out lock out. Then pull clip the rest of the way out(don't drop it inside the door). With all this disconnected, remove all the panel screws(just around the outside edge) and you should be able to drop the panel down and out. Might have to roll window down just a slight bit to clear everything. It really isn't hard to do once get it figured out. Just had mine all apart last winter for a lube job.

Here is what it looks like: (less the power window motor. I was trying to figure out a way to make them power)

Put a little sound deadener on the door. Makes them "thunk" close instead lf "Twang". I tried the poor mans tar/paper but should have just bought Dynamat. I did put Dynamat on the floor and it helped a good bit also.

My passenger side interior handle was sloppy. Seems the little spring was broke that holds it in the middle location. I was able to find one at the local hardware and get it back in working order.

the bottom of the handle is spring loaded pretty sure I had to pull the base of the handle away from the door trim to get to the roll pin behind it and just push it out I used a punch I seem to remember and once it went the first little bit it was easy as

The door handle and the window crank both come apart the same- there are 2 rings between the handle and the inner door panel. Push the one the closest to the handle in (toward the door panel) and push the pin out with a punch. If it doesn't go easy, go the other way- should not need to pound it out.

I find it much easier to remove the window/ latch assembly it you take the inner window trim piece off and remove the vent window.

yep it's not a roll pin as such just like a little bit of rod and the spring loaded doodah holds it in place
