Question about 1999 Nissan Altima
The drivers door mechanism that holds the door open so that you don't crunch your fingers or bonks you in the head when you get out has oddly been bent. How do I take the door apart, repair/replace it, and make sure it's in properly? Are there any specifics that I need to know? Any precautions as I have power locks/windows?
You will have to remove the door panel. Leave the window in the up position. The door check is held to the door with 2- 10MM nuts (wrench size) and to the body with 2- 10 MM bolts (wrench size). Oce you have it unbolted, it will fall into the door. Remove from door and install new one in reverse order. Reinstall door panel.
Hope this is helpful!!!
