Armaplate Fitting Guide: Citreon Relay Side Doors
The first step in fitting Armaplate to the side door is to remove the door-trim. Remove 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. You will not be refitting this item.
Detach the lever from the lock mechanism...
and then withdraw the lock barrel...
Put the backing plate in position, reinsert the lock barrel and refit the lock-rod which you detached earlier
Fit a circular and rectangular gasket to the front stainless steel plate and apply a small amount of silicone sealant around the stud areas
Fit the stainless steel plate and fix with the Nyloc Locknuts.
|The inner studs are awkward to reach, so use the special tool available from Armaplate to fit the nuts.|
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.
