Quickest way to remove xf doors

Recommended Posts

Hi folks,

 

I’m off to the wreckers this weekend. What’s the quickest way to remove front doors? (Gotta keep the wife’s anger to a minimum).

 

What else do you guys grab from the wreckers. I’m new to falcon projects and am loving it. (Use to muck about with English stuff, but got sick of the oil leaks).

 

Cheers,

Rod.

if you unclip or just brute force rip out the inner splash guards from the mudguard you can access the bolts on the door or the A pillar with ease(WARNING RED BACKS LOVE IT IN THERE),
13mm i think for the hinges to A pillar, i'd grab them  and do it that way, be easier, and spares are good.

sometimes the hinge to door has a countersunk torx bolt,(later XFs and XG XH) so that's another reason to take the hinges also.

 

as for things to get... 

start a list and budget... 

 

i'd just take a good look at what's worn.. see if you can afford it all

Thanks guys.

It’s my third trip. I’m getting addicted.
My list so far is:
- S pack rim x1
- drivers seat belt,
- couple of miscellaneous screws
- door (LH priority, and RH is all goes well).
- 1/4 panel LH

The place I’m going in South East Melbourne allows Sabre saws, so I’m charging the battery for extra fun.

Doors came off super easy. So pleased I asked the question of help. I usually find the longest way to do something the first time.

Thanks.
