Replacing rear SW door

I'm going to replace my rear door. Any helpful hints? How difficult of a job is this?

Thanks

Undo 6 bolts, remove door.

(after first disconnecting the electrics and (if fitted) water pipe for rear wipe)

Might pay to get an extra pair of hands to help physically support and lift off the door when the last bolts come out.

My only concern is getting the glass out and into the new door.

Bring it over next weekend. We can do it here and I have a couple spare sheets of heated glass if we break yours. The older ones are not held on by anything more than dumdum (black putty crap) not sure about the newer ones. A thin putty knife all the way around worked to get the glass out for me. I also have some spare hinge rebuild kits if you don't have them yet.

I don't know of anyone who paints cheap. We normally DIY with the R.O.V.E.R.S. people.
