That's a good little trivia on how to remove the door handle! Thanks for sharing that with us.

Those are my original side doors,,,,,,,I cut the bottoms off last year and left them at WideLoads to give to Savage,,,,,,so I have been planning on getting rid of whats left of them since it's HOT outside,,,,,,and then the electricity goes out for a few hours,,,,,,,while I was out looking at them I decided to cut a hunk out and show all the rods, clips, latches, lock and handles, since people are always asking about that stuff,,,,,,,,,

Thanks for the cut-a-way Don.Gives us an idea what we're feeling around for on the insides and how it fits back together.Those doors probably have about 400,000 mi.on them.

Do you have a "Warehouse" just for parts? I've said it before and will again. You've got the best pictures! Of every possible G10 part! And you know how to show how they work as well. Thank you. Everyone has had issue with these doors assy's myself included.

When it comes to the G10's Don, youre the man!!

Thanks,
Dan

I can tell you whats inside an A-100 Van side door. A lot of busted knuckles, sweat, cursing and "wtf was that engineer thinking". Cool (at least there is on mine)

(thanks for the pics!)

,,,,,,,,all this work for that little clip,,,,,,,,,,SO,,,,,,,after you reach in there and pop that clip off and it falls down into the door, you need to put it back on,,,,,,I seen a lot of doors that were cut open so someone could get their hand in there to snap that clip back on. BUT,,,,,,,I remove one of the screws out of the outside bezel and replace it with a longer 1/4" bolt, then do the other one,,,,,then I can just slide the bezel back without that backing plate falling off down into the door or trying to line it back up. With the bezel slid back, I put the clip on from the outside and slide it back in and re install the original screws. Then you push the handle back in and locks in place,,,,,,,

Another door question...

As you can see in the picture below, my side door has a post for connecting the interior door handle to:



But my rear interior door handle post seems to be missing:



So am I actually missing a part, or is the rear post broken off???

The rear doors did not have the interior handle.

You need the side door latch mechanism if you want a handle inside the rear door because the splined stud is part of the latch assembly.

Thanks for the info M1. So was the rear interior intended to be left as I have it then?

The 66 Handi van I had in the 70's had shaved handles which kept others out of my business pretty effectively...... Now that I know about using lock solenoids as poppers, I'm going make side and rear shaved on my 69, as well..... Poppers won't operate the top/bottom latches, so I'll have operable inside handles to latch those, if necessary....
