Another question

Does the actaul metal door skin come off the frame?

Instead of replacing the whole door inc widow etc?

If it's easier that is. As looks like the wing has to be remove in order to remove the bolts holding the hinges on.

the skin wont come off the actual door - unless you wanted to get into a whole heap of work, the top hinge just lifts off and splits (6mm bolt iirc)

the bottom hinge also splits leaving half on the pillar and half on the door, wing doesn't need to come off the remove the door

Ok, next stupid question

The cable that runs along the top that also comes in via the main wires, looks like ot goes to the door handle, how does that come off?

Dosnt feel like an electrical cable more of a locking cable or something?

Only piece holding me back now, can't see in there how to unclip it
