Door Limiting Strap

    Looking for some suggestions on replacing the LH door limiting strap on an S1. I followed the threads on the forum and was able to remove the pin on the frame side but cannot figure out how to remove the old worn strap from the door. Have a new one from SS. Is there a trick to the R&R?

    Pull it out from inside the door. There is a clip and you have to depress the two tabs on the outside to pull the clip thru the door .

    Thanks. Have been trying that without success as yet. It is hard to reach the tabs through the opening and hold them depressed as I pull it back into the door. Knowing I am using the right technique helps. I likely just need to try harder.

    We put a video up on The Sunbeam Alpine Channel about replacing the catch wires for the door check as these seem to break quite regularly but are relatively easy to fix.

    Drop a small screw through where the pin was and close the door a little bit. It will pop right off the catches inside of the door.

    Bingo! Easy peazy with the right technique. Thanks. Now on to some electrical issues.
