Have two people when doing this; makes it easier and faster.

If the car is equiped with power locks or windows you will have to remove the door panel to unplug the wiring.

Have one person (the stronger one) hold the door in place as the other person loosens the bolts (should be 4 or so).

****Some cars have a "stopper" to keep your door from shutting on you when you are getting out. You may not have one where you have to remove but if you do it should be nothing more then a couple of bolts or a pin. Remove the bolts or pin. If nothing like this is visible then skip this step.

Use hand tools when loosening the bolts once they are loosened you may use a power tool to quicken the job.

Remove the door (and pull the wiring out of the door if there is any).

Replace the door by (placing the wiring back in) and having the one guy/girl hold the newer door up and the other person replacing the bolts. Start threading the bolts in my hand...NOT WITH POWER TOOL.


Too properly allign the door, still have one person hold the door and move it which ever way it needs to go (up down left right) and have the other tighten and losen the bolts until it can be shut without clunking or rubbing around the door frame.

This should take about 30-45 minutes but might take longer. Depends on the person/people.
