Access to door catch?

Recommended Posts

Hi,

New owner ('83 USA) and new to the forum.  To kick off what will likely be one of many inquiries, how may I get access to the backside of the door jam?  My driver's door catch is only attached via the bottom bolt and the top appears to be missing the nut on the backside.  Thanks!

John

If its the same as mine, there is a plate with 2 captive nuts. Presumably one has undone and the plate has spun around.

Thats the problem but the solution......not sure.

the way I reached it is to take the shelf above the fuel tank out and then you should be able to reach down to the back of it. If it has dropped off it will be lodged under the fuel tank most likely - to reach this you can just about fit a small hand in through an access hole underneath the tank from underneath the car - with a screwdriver you might be able to get it out.... mine was quite a nightmare... but easiest access from within the boot via the top of the fuel tank.
