Entry 51 – Door Check Straps

Door Check Straps

The only task I have remaining to do to finish stripping the car is to remove the door check straps. For the life of me, I could not figure out how to remove them. I asked the experts on the Jag-Lovers email list and got help immediately: In this case you really do just hit the part with a hammer! After gently tapping the end of the arms with a soft headed hammer, the arms release from their pressure fit and pop right out. Finally, a really easy job.
