    Default Full door replacement- Help please

    Hi all. I am helping to replace a friend's passenger front door tomorrow.

    1. Does anyone know how to detached this wire loom from the front passenger door?

    2. Will the new door wire loom work with the car or will I have to transfer the old loom into the new door for it to work?

    3. Also will the electric mirror and window work without transfering the old ones?

    Any head up, help or hints will be appreciated. Thanks.

    P.S. I have checked under the how 2's but it only covered the conversion of rear manual window to electric.

    Default Door lock sensor: Help please.

    I am assuming the door lock mechanism of a corsa is the same with that of a vectra.

    Complete n/s front and rear doors replacemnt was done on friend's corsa without removing anything from the old door into the new one. All electrics (mirror, window, central locks) work fine but when he tries to move the car around, a buzzing sound and an "open" light comes up on the dashboard.

    Is there any sensor on the door lock or door which is making the car not to recognise the new door fitted and thus making it to report door opened?

    Kenp mentioned to move DDM/PDM from old car, will this look like what's in the attachment for a corsa?

    Yep the sensor is built into the lock mechanism, the new one may be knackered, worth just swapping to old one accross

    As an update, both the old lock mechanisms have now been swapped (50mins job) but unfortunately, the problem is still there. Grrrrrrrr.

    Battery has also been disconnected and reconnected again to see if it will reset itslef. NO. That did not work also.

    Nope, no ddm/pdm on the corsa. I have stripped the old doors down. Nothing like that.
