Reply To: door actuation rods


I also ran into both length and height issues with the door actuation rods.  I am glad that I dry fitted the doors first before cutting the rods.  If I had cut according to the manual, then I would have had two pair of short rods.  The height level for the guide/fairlead is off by a bunch.  I had to use a combination of adding washers and insetting the guide/fairlead on the door seal.  There needs to be a fix for the height mismatch.  (the alignment holes were perfect)  Is a Tech Bulletin out for this?

I also had some relaxing of the door shape on one door.  this added to the mismatch issue requiring me to push in on the door handle and the lower corner at the same time to make the door flush.  Any thoughts besides the door strap technique?
