Re: Door Assembly...the EASY way

Roll the window down all the way and slide it back till it hits the rear of the door. Picture shows clearance to install vent window.

Re: Door Assembly...the EASY way

Install vent window from inside as shown in picture.
Then pivot window in place while leaning the top towards back of window frame, there is plenty of room for this because the window is all the way back and the door latch has not been installed yet.

Re: Door Assembly...the EASY way

Install the door latch, handle relay and lock rod as one unit then.
Install rear window run channel as pictured, rotate counterclockwise then pivot into place (counterclockwise looking down)

Re: Door Assembly...the EASY way

The proper tools with picture of screws per location. (The pictured arm rest machine screw is not correct but is close, the correct one is a tiny bit shorter with a captured lock washer)
The regulator and door latch relay both take the shortest machine screws.

Got specs on the bit you ise for that door latch (#4)? Those guys can be a bear.

Like the others have said I have found this thread extremely helpful as well.

Its a snap-on 3/8drive bit like this one.

https://store.snapon.com/Phillips-17...r-P631491.aspx

the picture of the one in the link is generic though, its actually much larger. My electric impact usually gets them out if it doesn't then I switch to a 1/2" drive air impact with a 1/2 to 3/8 adapter. Its really the only way to remove those screws and all the rest on the door, they are tight.

Re: Door Assembly...the EASY way

I followed these instructions this weekend for both doors. Great instructions! I got a Craftsman #4 Phillips 3/8" drive bit from my local Sears, Item # 00944373000 Model # 44373 to handle the door latch screws. An impact driver with the #4 bit worked perfectly.

Re: Door Assembly...the EASY way

Excellent instructions and greatly appreciated. One question - does the window felt/weather strip running in the top channel of the door back down through the rear run for the side glass require any adhesive to stay in place? I have it all in place but seems very easy for it to pop out at any time. Thought a very thin bead of adhesive and roll it up tight for the night would do the trick but donít want to if not needed.

Re: Door Assembly...the EASY way

Excellent write-up Randy. Much thanks.
I've had my new window channel kits sitting around for three years because it was never clear how they went in. Now, I don't have an excuse.

Re: Door Assembly...the EASY way

I just found your write up on 72 glass install. It is exactly what I was looking for. Only question I have is when to install the door handle? Thanks
