1970 LEMANS PASSENGER DOOR ACTS LIKE ROLLLING UP TIGHT

Asked by Oct 04, 2015 at 06:27 AM about the 1970 Pontiac Le Mans

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

It's pulling the tint back in about 3-4 places now, looks like it's rubbing hard
against that trim on the outside part of the door so I presume mech is
damaged, loose bolts, holding mount busted but in my 40 years auto
experience on the side, not a professional is it a no no getting in there if
you've NEVER worked on anything to do with a door in or out but mirror
replacement and lock cover change out. Have plenty of tools, extra set of
hands and time and garage kept just is it really that hard to switch out a
mech if just a weekend warrior on his vehicle's? Do my own brakes, belts,
alternators. Have had my share of times started something I had no
business touching and mechanic saved me; so what's you guys got to say
go for it or find someone else?

If you can work on your brakes you can rebuild that door, believe me it easy then you think, its time and patience I just finished my doors on my 61 comet and it took me a day. You are going to need the door run and new fuzzies that you can purchase on line, make sure you take plenty of photos as you do the job, have fun and good luck.
