Hi I'm about to buy a replacement rear door as mine is dented beyond repair I've been offerd a bare door for £120 which seen as my car is the rare nautic blue I've no real choice but to pay it and the guy knows it :0 how easy it it to change all parts from my damaged door to my new door? I'm a decent DIY mechanic do everything myself on my cars but never changed a window any info would be appreciated. Thanks

Looks like you need to read:
51 22
51 34 or 35, and
51 42

Shouldnt be too hard. I've done a hatch before, but not a door.
E87 118d, stock, plus PDC control unit drain, Parrot, debadged, Mothercare baby shades (but no babies), and occassionally a good layer of wax. Instantly forgettable, and thats the way I like it.
