Armaplate Fitting Guide: Ford Transit Rear Doors
Remove door handle as shown in photo, then use tack-remover to extract the door-trim plugs.
|Carefully pull back the plastic seal to gain access to the inner door.|
Affix gasket to back of stainless-steel plate and apply a small amount of silicone sealant around the stud areas.
Using the stainless-steel plate (or supplied template), mark the holes for drilling. Drill the holes using a 10mm drill-bit or (if preferred) your conical bit. Once drilled, protect the area with a small amount of touch-up paint.
Now fit the stainless steel frontplate to theoutside of the door and the zinc backplate to the inside of the door
Fit the Nyloc Locknuts to the studs and tighten.
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 gently move 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
