Door pin guide

I think there used to be a guide for fitting new door pins, is that still about?

Just wanted to know if you knock both pins out in the same direction

Nope, top one goes down and the bottom one goes up.

Cheers! Can they be done one by one on the car, or does the door have to come off?

If you knock them out while on the car the door will come of :-D :-D :-D

Best is to take the door of and then remove tnem.

But first of all, start soaking them with WD40 everyday for a week or so, it will have time to penatrate and make removal a lot easier.

I meant access to the pins with the door on. Then I can do them one by one, keeping the door propped up.

I know what you meant, but the best and easiest is to take them off.

The acces is easier and when you miss hit you will not damage anything what will be in the way.

But as I said start soaking and the look further in a week or so.
