Picture request: Puma door

Can someone post a picture of a puma front door with the panel removed? Ideally specifically of where it bolts on, on the lower rear side

Thanks. No I didn't get the picture yet but don't go crazy.. I just got the new Puma inner panels yesterday and haven't tried test fitting them yet. What I am curious about might end of being self explanatory.

I know to fit these panels to older doors I am going to have to make some kind of bracket on the one side at minimum. I was curious of how the panel sat on that (flush with door, protruding etc)

If after I try fitting it I cannot figure it out, then I will gladly take up your offer.

Let's see what happens after this weekend.

So I pulled some parts off. Looks like it might actually work without making a bracket, and get away with just adding a couple nutserts and drilling a hole in the new panel. Ill take a picture of what it looks like once I get the glass out and new panel hung in place with the bolts that fit.

I won't know for sure until I get the door glass out

How the heck do you get the door glass out? Remove the window tracks? Are these tracks one time use only?

I also need to find a way to get the older style window track that is attached to the glass off. I think a heat gun and some patience will do the trick.

I am starting to see why power windows aren't a popular mod. The SPAL kit would have been 10x easier and 1/4 of the price.

having replaced my own glass from the roll up doors. This is what I did:

1) Remove the inner panel.
2) Remove the window winder assembly
3) The glass track is glued pretty solid onto the glass but you can remove the track off the slider.
4) Glass should slip down at an angle and clear the tabs (I bent mine a bit and hammered it back into place.

Adam, have you searched the UK boards or spoken to any of the UK parts suppliers? This has been done a lot over there as I recall back pre-puma era.

Thanks. 1 and 2 are done. I will get the glass track off once I get the glass out using a heat gun and some finesse.

I need to remove the screws holding the felt track to get the glass out? Or are you guys just bending that and pulling the glass out of it?

I haven't had much luck with the UK boards. The most helpful so far has been Zach and SafariHP.

I am close to having this sorted out. The rest of my parts will be here today that will allow me to get the doors finished. Then just waiting on a couple more parts to come to finish up the wiring.

Optimistic goal is to have the glass out, and Puma panel/regulator attached tonight. Then I just need to measure out where I need to modify the glass and attach the new tabs

Getting there...

1. Glass removed, old style strip on bottom removed.

2. New panel attached everywhere but bottom RH side. I just need to make a spacer that will go between old bracket and new panel. Shouldn't be a big deal.

Then I need to reinsert the glass back in window and start fitting everything up so I can mark where the new style glass tabs will get attached.

I wish i had bought some new window track as my old stuff is little rotten towards the bottom where the screws go. Since these doors only have another year or two left in them I will probably just try to make it work. I would rather put the door money towards the LS swap first.

Hopefully will have the passenger side finished up today.

On the left side anyway

Please don't set my OCD off LOL. I convinced myself I wouldn't clean up inside the doors because they are going to be replaced at some point with Puma doors. Since that picture they did receive a good vacuuming and wipe down with some cleaner.

...And thank you. I will post finished product once they are completely done. I just ordered some of those nice foam Puma water shedder things that go behind the door panels from Zack. The 10/4 wiring I ordered two weeks ago that runs from the relays in battery box to the cabin still hasn't come. My OCD forced me to go the 4 relay route. Otherwise everything is is basically done. Everything pertaining to the doors is done. Center cubby is installed, switches are wired up as far as the battery box. I am really happy with the switch location. Kick plates modified to accept the new loom etc. I modified some black thin plastic caps to cover up the window crank holes which worked out great. I am traveling for the next few days so it will have to wait until the first weekend of February to be finished.

Does this look right?

I’m hoping this will work with my puma doors right hand side!

I have the same exact car and i have the kit for the power windows. This thread is motivating me NOT to do the swap. Having to replace the inner panel and make brackets, etc sounds like a major production. The suppliers and other things i read on line state the older model D90s like ours will work with the kit just some minor cutting of the inner panel to make room for the motor is the main thing. I am wondering if you even tried that route or just wanted to have a nice clean inner panel as the reason for going the route you did?
