    Is there some sort of trick to reinstall the rear door panels in a Y33? I changed out a rear window motor and putting the door panel back on is whipping me... Please tell me someone else has had this problem and help me figure it out!

    its really simple...try to roll the window down first and put the top edge on first...

    I tried that... Not sure why this is such a PITA to me. Maybe because I have big hands and no patience

    roll window down
    put front corner in, make sure its all the way in
    then bang down where the small pillar is between the 2 windows
    sometimes its easier if you use pliers to flair the metal lip outwards near the small pillar

    the rears are a bitch but with some finger muscle strength you can flex the door panel to get it over the top edge. Come down at a angle rather then straight on helps too.

    Sorry for super delayed response. Ended up bending the sheet metal at the top out just a bit for more clearance to get my big ass hands in there. Finally got it back together!
    Thanks for everyone's advice. Great community when you ca. Get help for such a simple task. Anywhere else and I would have gotten flamed...
