Armaplate Fitting Guide: Citreon Relay Rear Doors
The first step in fitting Armaplate to the rear door is to remove the door-trim. This is achieved by undoing 2 screws in the door-pull assembly and then removing the trim-plugs with your tack-remover.
Remove the lock-barrel circlip with a pair of long-nosed pliers as you did on the front door....
...and then withdraw the lock barrel.
UUsing either the supplied drilling-template or the zinc-coated backing plate as a guide, mark the holes for drilling and then drill 4 holes starting with a small pilot hole and ending with a 10mm bit.
|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.
Fit a circular and rectangular gasket to the back of the stainless steel plate and apply silicone sealant around the stud areas.
|Fit the backing plate to the inside of the door and reinsert the lock-barrel to hold it in place.|
Fit the front stainless steel plate and fit the Nyloc Locknuts. It is difficult to reach the uppermost stud on the right-hand side of the plate, so you will need to use your conical drill-bit to make an access hole as demonstrated
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.
