ADJUSTMENTS / INSTALLATION TIPS
Due to variations in construction and assembly procedures during vehicle manufacturing and also dealing with a vehicle that has been on the road for 5-10 years in most cases you will be required to make some sort of adjustments.
1. In many instances the actual steel door on the vehicle will need to be adjusted. You can make adjustments to the lower doors by slightly loosening the door hinge bolts using a T40 torx bit and reposition the door for an improved fit. NOTE: Use caution when doing so.
2. If the back side of the door is hitting the top, unhook the windshield latches, loosen the rear mounting bolts and then push top backwards. Re-tighten the rear bolts and re adjust front latches.
3. If the top of the door is hitting the top, you can shim the top. Unlatch the front of the top and remove the rear bolts. You can shim top simply by placing the needed amount of flat washers over the mounting holes on the vehicle and the replace top over and reattach bolts.
4. The OEM seal may need to be changed. Depending on the condition either one or all of the rubber seals needed for a good fit may need to be replaced. (Full Steel Door Seal, Cowl Rubber, Windshield header Seal.) Signs of a seal needing replacement is; worn, dry or flattening of the rubber.
