    Default Stripping 205 GTI doors

    Hi All

    I am readying my 205 GTI for a respray and am stripping down as much as possible myself. Had a go at the doors yesterday and got up to removing door handle and locking/central locking mechanism. Managed to unscrew most identifiable bolts on the latch and door handle but still couldn't disconnect all the rods easily.

    Grateful for any tips or suggestions.

    take the locks out by removing the retaining plate inside the door. this should give you enough freedom to swivel the lock off the rods. its not easy but that's how ive done them in the past.
