I agree. I'd much rather deal with a few wires than pull the door panel. I always seem to break some of the fasteners.johnszcz said:I dont know how many wires in involved but it seems to me that cutting and crimping the cables might be easier and faster then taking apart the door panel?
Here is a little trick I use for crimped connections exposed to the elements, or in areas where condensation can occur. I fill the barrel ends of the connectors with dielectric grease before crimping to help avoid corrosion. Then wipe down excess and finish off with heat shrink tubing. Then finally seal the ends of the tubing with silicone adhesive. I do not like to use those crimp on splices as the internal wires do corrode over time.Seranin said:It's up to you...certainly it removes the chance of marring the vinyl in the door panel with the various bits you have to pry up. If you feel more comfortable getting solid connections via crimping then go for it. Make sure to wrap the outer insulation with electrical tape of course when you're done.
