    Hey again,
    My '86 K5 has power windows/locks... is it easy to remove the doors still, or is it harder due to the power windows/locks??

    I don't know squat about cars, that's why I became a cop. :p

    You'll have more wires to disconnect, but it's no more difficult :great:
    If you have a garage with open rafters, use them to rope the doors up to support the weight while you unhinge them.

    I'm restoring an 86 K5 and I need to take off the doors.
    What's the best/most efficient way to disconnect the wiring for the power locks?
    I can't see any way to reach it.

    If you cant reach the connections at the lock and window motor then the best method is to cut the wires and tag them, although they should be color coded, then make a short set of jumper wires to go between the two ends when you reconnect.
    By using a set of jumpers you wont leave the wires to short. If you plan on removing the doors a lot you might want to install a plug that can be tucked inside the door frame.

    That's the way I was leaning. I just wanted to make sure I wasn't missing an obvious way to further disassemble the door shell to get to the inner workings.
    Thanks very much for the reply.
