Help! Stuck in middle of door spring fix...


Recommended Posts

So, my interior d/s door handle went pop the other day and was hanging loose away from the door. I found the info on fixing it, got the upgrade parts from the dealer, and set out to fix it.

Everything went well so far...I got the ugraded latch assembly installed ok. Now I need to install the replacement bowden cable. I can attach it to the handle side OK, but I'm not sure how to attach it to the door lock mechanism.

One problem is I can't get the inner panel completely clear with the power window motor and linkage attached. I really don't want to mess with that...

I have got all the inner panel screws removed and I think I can get my hand in there between the door and the panel, BUT I don't see where the bowden cable attaches to the lock. Do I remove the Torx screws in the door edge face to loosen the lock mechanism? If I do that will (1) I have access to where the bowden cable attaches? And, (2) will I be able to remount the lock mechanism OK?

I've searched the Inet for info/pictures regarding the lock without success...

Nevermind...I figured it out. The power window motor can be removed without screwing up the linkage. Also, I loosened the lock mechanism and was able to attach the new bowden cable. I replaced some of the plastic clips that hold the outer panel on and it all went back together ok, and everything works just fine.
