almost 100k on the clock



So did some work, mostly maintenance, that was postponed for some time now, although i did have the parts needed, lol. It is just that I want to do some things by myself I guess.
Makes my OCD feel happy.

Temporary wheels are not so bad after all



So, first I bought this



Passenger door would lock and unlock depending on weather, luck, and temper I guess, so I went for original and new parts, no china parts, not used parts, and once I show you what it takes to replace it, I am sure you would do the same, LoL





Grab a coffee, and go to the passenger side if you are about to do this.



Remove the plastic cover to give access to side bolts



Behind the oem round sticker is this bolt that you need to undo, not fully



In order to remove this (while pulling the door handle as you unbolt)





Then you remove the hinge and you can also remove the door handle



You also unbolt the T20 torx screw behind the door handle.

Then, time to take the door cover off

Remove all the bolts around the door card, just note which one goes where



also these



Remove the door card (easier with two people, I did it on my own)



And you are left with this





Like a Car X Ray, LoL

Then, you remove this little o-ring and out comes the weird metal assembly



You then have to remove this plastic white cover to gain access to the lock



So dirty



Gave it a quick clean





Old and dirty lock



Take these two bolts out, to remove the lock assembly (attention these are not torx screws)



Remove it from the metal tab of the door, and then disconnect the hinge



Side by side



This is the part you have to transfer from the old one to the new one



Dirty doors make me sad



Better



Installed



Dont forget the hinge



And also the cover



Putting the door card back on your own is a bit tricky but it can be done



Gave the plastic cover some love



And it was ready to close everything again



Happy to report, everything works great



The time to install the new passenger side wheel arch as the old one was damaged



New hardware



All done



Lower side



I then washed the car, happy to see it still keeps some nice beading after all this time





Then it was time for some interior work - yes it is dirty i know



Tired passenger parts








New parts









Happy with that

Removed the Thule bars for now, as I am mostly travelling with the AUD1ESEL now, i think it still looks sharp after all these years



Cheers more to come

Mike

Some of the pictures don't match the descriptions I'm afraid my friend.
