    I was wondering how this is done? I have all the wires that run through the door jam. I s there a way to disconnect them so I can remove the door and if so are the running to anything inportant or are they running to the power windows and power locks? /forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif

    Yes, they just run to the locks and windows. I have never messed with power doors so I dont know if there is an easy way to disconnect them. If not, you could probably install some kind of plug(s).

    I did just this on my '82 last month. I also have the power windows and door. There are, I think 9 or so wires on each side. I got some do it yourself wire plugs and cut the wires and put them into a plug. So now, I pull the plug and the pins and off the doors come. Worked out nice.

    i just cut the wires and used connectors. makes things easy for quickly removing and attaching the doors.

    Make sure you disconnect your battery! The window and door wires make good welders!

    They are plugs inside the door for the lock and the window motor, but I do not think that they will fit through the rubber tube in the door jamb...
