    Default Swap Vectra Door

    Hi All

    I need to swap a damaged door on my car. I have a second hand door that needs to go on but none of the inside panelling came with it. I need to swap all of this over to the new door before I can fit it.

    Can anyone give me some pointers as to where to start ? Should I leave it into the shop to get this done or can I diy it.

    Thanks

    I will have a look, I could only spot two torq screws on the inside of the door. I have a habit of breaking things so I will check out the how to's before I go near it.

    Just get a mate to help you , and take your time.
    All things on the door panel like grab handle covers and switches pop off , then there are torx screws behind , once these are out the panel is held on by plastic poppers.
    Like I mentioned before , the only tricky thing will be the window regulator ( riveted to the door skin. ) So be sure to have a torx bit set , a rivet gun and rivets , and a drill to pop the old rivets out.
    Take pictures of everything first , then as you go. This will help make sure you get everything aligned and in the correct place.
    It's definately worth a go if your not bad on the spanners. But definately make sure someone's there to help with lifting and aligning the door.
    There's enough support on here if you get stuck with anything , You only need to ask. good luck .
