Anyone know how to remove the door card

Postby Doormedic » Mon Apr 15, 2019 4:40 pm

As above just got my 19 plate and want to fit my hype lock. Tried to remove the pull handle cover but seems very tight. Does it just pull off or am I missing something

Just got my 19 model sport and want to get the mirrors to auto fold. Have tried doing the relay thing as posted elsewhere on here and in doing so had to remove the door card.
There are several hex screws dotted around the difficult ones are removing the insert behind the pull / unlock handle and getting the big black trim pull handle cover off which is done by looking underneath where you grab it look for the seam where you can insert a plastic tool and prising down, this allows the black cover to be Un clipped revealing two large hex screws.
If you want I can upload a pic?
By the way I followed Loots write up on the auto mirror fold but couldn’t get it working....seems like the 8 pin connector is changed and I couldn’t find an alternative.

The most difficult part getting the door card off on the 2019 Custom is removing the door handle part. After trying to modify the auto folding mirrors to work with locking/unlocking by the key fob and following the thread by Loot I had to get the door card off to fit the relay switch. Unfortunately it didn’t work so have left it for now however I do now know that you have to release a hidden pull down tab right behind the grab handle, find the seam/join it’s quite a tug to get it to drop down then the black trim can be pulled off to reveal more screws. Hopefully you can see the part in the attached pictures....

Hi newbie here first post I watched the guy take the card off when i had updated locks fitted on my 18 plate custom.

If you are going to all the trouble taking the door card off ,fit some silent coat sound proofing my doors now shut with a thud!! and feel like they
are armor plated when you tap the outside.

I also did the back and bulkhead including under the bonnet,makes for a much quieter ride with 20 inch alloys :D

When you say under bonnet what do you mean?
This is my second 2.0l transit custom and I find it is a berry noisey engine compared to the 2.2 in the older customs.
Would love to block out some of that noise....
I can make the doorbell ring any time I want, all I have to do is go to the toilet.

I just removed the existing felt soundproof, you will find lots of strange shapes underneath ,and filled all the holes with silent coat and then replaced the felt.
Now the bonnet shuts with a thud instead of a clonk!!

You will be surprised how very little, sound proof there is in the doors a tiny piece of felt :x .

I think most of the noise comes from the floor, and front wheel arches im going to tackle that in the summer.

thanks for the info.
i have already tackled the doors with silent coat when i upgraded the audio system.
i agree with you i think most of the noise is coming from the floor and front wheel arches.
do you think you noticed any difference in noise after you did the bonnet?

Tbh Im not sure if umderneath the bonnet has made much difference.When the van was delivered in Jan it came with 20inch alloys.only had a week then fitted
winter tyres ready for 2 weeks in the Alps.If i get time this week ill put the orignal tyres back on.Not sure if there is much sound difference between the tyres
