Posted by Support Staff on 15th Dec 2018

Installation tips:

  • Prevent Paint damage: Be sure to mask area around exterior handle before removal and installation. 
  • Prior to replacement compare the replacement unit to the original. 
  • Do not damage water shield. It will need to be reused. 
  • Replace all rod retaining clips when available. 
  • Always torque fasteners to specs (do not over tighten). 
  • Always replace door panel retaining clips if they are damaged. 
  • Check operation of door lock actuators, replace as necessary. 
  • While you have the door panel off now is a good time to check operation of window regulator. Replace if binding, noisy or if operation is erratic. 
  • Inspect all door hinge pins and strikers. Hint: if door drops when opened, hinge bushings and pins may be worn.
