    Easy peeesy. 2 small grub screws on the hinges, the bar that links door to A pillar and then the electrical connector and it should lift off.

    Its probably going to be a bare door so will have nothing inside so would need to swap over the electric window motor, door, loom etc.

    Is that easy enough?

    I reckon now I know how it'd only take an hour tops .

    The little black grommit that holds the window to the mech was a buggar . One of mine broke getting it out , luckily I found 2 of them in the replacement door



    I got mine on ebay from VauxhallHeaven
    http://myworld.ebay.co.uk/vauxhallhe...id=p4340.l2559



    Free Delivery too and it was really well packaged
