    Default drivers door check strap busted

    Part of the door has come off where the check strap top screw goes in next to the door card. Any one got a check strap I could buy from them

    On my facelift, the door bolts have the nut on the outside, with the head on the inside. You would have to be very lucky to be able to undo these without them falling into the door.

    the head on the inside it welded to the door check link so they wont fall inside the door if you remove the nuts
