REMOVAL & INSTALLATION

- Pull the door stopper pin upward while pushing in on the claw. Leave the claw raised after removing the pin.
- Place a wooden block, rubber pad or other soft surface under the door for protection, then support it with a floor jack.
- Remove the door mounting bolts, then remove the door. Special box wrenches are available to make accessing door hinge bolts easier
- Installation is the reverse of removal. Adjust the door as necessary to achieve proper fit and prevent body interference.
