removing an FC door latch
Posted by: Intrinsic ()
Date: February 04, 2019 12:04PM

I am trying to remove the door latch mechanism from my 63 Rampside.

How does the latch disconnect from the rod and interior door handle assembly?

Right now I have the handle assembly disconnected, but its too bulky to maneuver to get the latch past the bottom of the window.

Thanks

Roll window up. Unbolt glass run channel so it can swing out of the way.It will then come out.

Yes.... remove the inside top door tin cover. Roll the window up all the way. Remove the window channel piece inside the door. This is mounted with two Philips head fasteners that are accessible near the latch, in the door jam area.
Remove the two nuts that secure the window to the lift arm of the regulator. Detach the regulator from the glass. Wind the Reg down. Now slide the glass down and remove it from the door. This possible after the inside channel piece is out of the way. Remove the glass. Remove the inside door handle. Remove the 3 Philips fasteners that hold the door regulator to the door. Then the 3 Philips screws that hold the latch assembly to the door.
Reassembly---
I find it easier to install the latch "with" the latch and handle regulator attached to each other.

Come on Matt, don't you want to give everyone every last bit of information possible? I'm glad he does it. I'm too lazy.

This is one of those jobs that simply cannot be rushed. I took pix with my phone as I went along to make sure I didnt leave anything out or put it back incorrectly. While you have the glass out and access, be sure to clean the 50-plus year old hardened grease out of the tracks and pivots on the window mechanisms. Then re-grease everything. What a difference it makes on rolling the window up and down, as well as the door latch operation when everything is properly lubed after such a long time.
