Default Re: Rear Door Bumper Replacement

Thanks for this. Very timely as I prep for some paint on my rear doors...

It appears you had to mangle the old mount to get clearance for the new part to bolt on...
would threading just the upper bolt back in prior to removing the lower bolt have been an option?

A bit of body sealant or even a drop of crazy glue down into the gap to stabilize a backing plate can be really helpful during this sort of blind re-assembly... you still want to always have a bolt (or two) holding the plate up, but getting the second bolt’s holes aligned is made a lot easier if the plate is stuck on and isn’t freely swinging around...

Assembling with a bit of grease on the exposed threads will help keep moisture out of the door.
