    I have electric doors and replaced the door with a new one. It's all together except it looks like the wiring can only be routed one way due to the length of the wire and moving parts. Can someone tell me the correct routing for the wires. After coming through the door do they go between the motor assembly and the inside door panel? I'd hate to route the wires in the wrong location and they end up getting sliced by the window and shorting everything out. [​IMG] [​IMG]

    I seem to remember the harnes laying in the bottom of the door with the wires to the switches going upp from that, running between the door-panel and the doormetal.

    Maybe someone else have been in there more recent.

    I've replaced both my doors so I have nothing to go by right now. [​IMG]

    Rampage... I'm gonna have my Passenger side door panel off on my 87 (power door locks and windows) this weekend and can try and get a decent pic for you if you'd like. See if I can get one around the stuff in the way. The wires should kinda form back to the way they were, but I don't remember off had exactly how they go. You can also hook up everything and make sure it looks ok and then slow put the window up and down and make sure everything looks like it will clear.

    Pics would be great !!
    Since I had the doors off, the wires were bent in all sorts of directions. I've thought about doing the trial and error way and I have an idea of how they route, but I'd like to be 100% positive they are back in the same way as before. Those windows look like they would make great wire cutters [​IMG]
    Thanks for the help Capt.

    on a similar note, does anyone know the voltage at the motor? i'm going to check the wires @ connection, because it seems that there's not enough juice going to the pass side.
