Re: 90° degrees door stopper / adjuster / retainer W460 W461 W463

Yes I think I did do it correctly. It has two stops now and final is 90 deg. I think it would not have been able to do that if the other way around.

Re: 90° degrees door stopper / adjuster / retainer W460 W461 W463

Hmmm looks like I did not get it same way as in Guido’s photos. Will have to examine it more carefully on opening to see if it matters much.

Re: 90° degrees door stopper / adjuster / retainer W460 W461 W463

Thanks Cal I had forgotten the photos at the front of this thread. It looks as if I got one side in correctly. Of course had a 50/50 chance of doing so. I had once thought one could extend the stoppers by welding an extension patch in but this is beyond my shop capabilities. If I had a bigger space ...

Re: 90° degrees door stopper / adjuster / retainer W460 W461 W463

One thing I might have goofed on when it can to installing the new stopper was which way was up? The arm is slightly arced and my reasoning at the time which was to have the tab with the hole in it facing forward now may have been incorrect. The door opens fully now with one soft stop before the har...

Re: 90° degrees door stopper / adjuster / retainer W460 W461 W463

Ok so I have refined a method how to get the hinge pin out easily. I have completed the Rhs passenger door today and it really did not take long. I think the next door might be done within a 30 min time from start to finish. Here is how to simply get the pin out. Take of the circlip first!!! Obtain ...

Re: 90° degrees door stopper / adjuster / retainer W460 W461 W463

Better still I might button it back up, get two pins and regroup for an all out assault in near future.

Re: 90° degrees door stopper / adjuster / retainer W460 W461 W463

I was thinking I could get by with same pin and same circlip. I know the pins are cheap but still thought could reuse.

Maybe I am being too gentle. Not angry enough yet. Thing is you can’t be angry and smart at same time so I try to control this first emotion.

Re: 90° degrees door stopper / adjuster / retainer W460 W461 W463

Hi Otis, I note the pin has the top portion near the ferrule (I think this is correct name) machined with vertical knurls, not quite knurls I guess that obviously when pushed in when installed crush and secure it in the opening. So clearly I should replace those if very obsessive but I am going to l...

Thanks Alan. I will put this on my list. Not sure I want to tackle it just yet but hate to take door card off more then necessary.
