    Default Removing a Fuego Door

    Hi all
    I need to swap a door over and was looking for some tips such as tools required, position of the wiring connectors, and any hints.
    Thanks

    You will need to strip the furnishings from the inside of the door and drag out the wiring to the window switches and remote locking. You will also need to remove the carpeted panel inside the car and which covers the bolts to the hinges. Make sure you support the door when opened before loosening the hinges. Door is quite heavy and be careful easing it past the guard. Take note of how many spacers might have been used to get the door alignment right. You will also need to use a roll pin to free the door restraint. From memory, tools needed are a roll pin and 13mm socket on an extension - might be more than 13mm.

    From memory, this was fairly straight forward to change over doors, there is some difference between the wiring of early and later series Fuego's relevant to the electrics and the locking systems, but all that can be changed over, easy to test and swap the keylocks and set up of the wiring, support the weight of the door on a box or made up platform. Easy with two people.

    Alternatively to supporting door, remve hinge nuts with door closed.
    Undo roll pin and wiring first,and roll the window down.
    Window down makes it heaps easier to carry
