The first task is to remove the door trim and handles. This involves undoing a number of screws as depicted in the photos. Be sure to store the screws safely for refitting later. Disconnect the speaker cable and pull the trim off.
With the door trim removed, use the tack-remover to withdraw the female trim-plugs from the door and fit them to the male trim-plugs on the back of the door trim. They fit on with a "push & twist"
Using a sharp blade, carefully cut back a section of the upper foam seal to gain access to the inner door. Then remove the bolt shown in the picture.
Using a pair of long-nose pliers, remove the door lock clip as shown on the left. You will not be refitting this.
|and then remove the door barrel...|
Using the supplied drill-template or gasket, mark the holes for drilling. Use a small bit to drill a pilot hole and then redrill with either a 10mm or conical drill-bit
Apply a small amount of touch-up paint to the drilled holes.
You can now fit the zinc-coated backplate. Insert the backplate and with your other hand, insert the lock barrel to hold the plate in position.
You will notice that the lock-barrel has a "finger" on the end. This must be located in the latch-recess as shown in the photograph...
Next, fit the supplied circular gasket to the stainless steel plate and fit the plate to the door...
Secure the plates by fitting the Nyloc Locknuts...
DO NOT OVERTIGHTEN!
The final step in the installation of Armaplate is to make sure that the keyhole is perfectly aligned. Since the locking nuts were not over-tightened, there is still a small amount of adjustment available by gently tapping the edge of the plate
Looking squarely at the keyhole, make sure the lock-mechanism is in the center of the hole in the Armaplate. If it is not perfectly aligned, use a soft-faced mallet to gentlymove the plate to the correct position
Finally, close the door, insert the door key and make sure that the door locks and unlocks easily
Once you are happy that the plate is fitted correctly, replace the inner door panels, door pull and window winder.
