    Default richbrook door pins

    just bought and fittedc the vauxhall richbrook door pins from red griffin styling (good service by the way) and upon fitting them i found that three of them went on fine but the rear drivers side lock pin seems to have a bend in it which stops the new pin slipping into position. has anyone else had this problem as it looks like ill have to cut about half an inch off the new pin so that it sights properly! also fitted the bee sting aerial kindly supplied by mr ed taylor and have to say it looks the dogs danglies thanks again ed!

    no ive looked in to the door panel and there is a bend in the rod which seems to stop the pin sliding down and the only way i can see it fitting is to cut the pin as the cantre of gthe pin is clear of obstructions

    I also found that about the rear door, after I had already fitted the front one.
    All I have done is make them all the same height as the rear. The grub screws tighten up correctly and the griffin logo sits just above the door card.
    When the door is locked, the top grub screw sits just under the surface of the door card.
