HOW TO: Interior swap with power window and locks (over 100 pics)
Ok for those that want it i hope this helps.. just so you know this is with after market wiring.. and only the master window switch in a custom place.
In this how to i replaced a zx3 no power option with svt eap power everything.
seat heaters with factory switches.
factory power window with single switch
factory door locks hooked to aftermarket alarm
hope you like it...
Here we go.. first like always.. turn on some music..
then we start tear down..
then pull of this panel behind the handle.. it has a cover and one screw then it just pulls off.
then take off all the screw to the panel..
take out the cover over the door handle grip and the 2 screws behind it
then pull off this cover pull back then out..
then pull the panel off
then the foam..
then your speaker .. 4 bolts and a plug..
then the door latch handle. pull the front of the handle out first
then pull off the foam blanket piece.
now the 3 bolts to the latch
then this screw
there is 2 on this handle inside the door one you can see plainly and the other you can see through this hole
this part of the handle will come off first
then the rest of the handle
then wiggle the latch assy out
then lower the window down about half way
and loosen the 2 bolts here..
then roll up your window and tape it up..
now i had an aftermarket power window set up in this car before so this is where it will differ a little bit ..
disconnect the window track assy.
wiggle it out
this is what you should have now
now take your power assy..
and reverse your steps..
wiggle it in
then bolt it in
now we are going to change out the locks on the old door handle to our new handle assy
2 screws here
then push this tab out
while trying to get out the piece you just unscrewed you could probably twist this out
now wiggle this out (silver bar)
and switch this piece (handle/lock assy) (whole assy) and reverse your steps..
reinstall your handle and latch assy reversing the steps of removal
now do the same for the other side
now we are gonna work on the interior...
I already had installed the recaros but they were not hooked up
so first the seats
pull off the covers and then unbolt them
now the under seat entertainment..lol
then the back lower seats.
this is what you should be at now.
then the back rests i forgot these pics sorry.. easy though.. just 5 bolts and the 3 seatbelts
the the center console
first the forward cover
then the cover for the bolts and then the bolts for the arm rest
then the two bolts under the cup holders and one in the back cup holder
then pull out your center console (you will not have these wires mine is from my power window kit)
then the arm rest bracket
then the front seat belt lower brackets.
then the rear vet tubes
this is where you should be now...
then the interior trip peices which are mostly clipped in.
now your carpet.. its held in by multiple clips down the side...
and pull it out..
now here is where things might really differ from your car.. i wired it like this to an wire with accy power..
yellow and green wired to yellow and orange
all balck wires together.
green and red to driver seat
green and blue to passenger seat
here is the switch diagram i used (thanks yzo4)
ok a bit more now.. after you ahve wired up your seat heaters lset go ahead and do the window switch... i decided to use the master switch and put it in my center console but you can do the same using the switches if you want to run all the wires to both sides of the car..
heres is the plug for the master switch
and how to wire them up..
green is your accy power
black is your ground
the yellow and white on the side of the ground is for the passenger side (just hook them up temporarly so you can figure which is up and which is down)
the yellow and white on the side of the plug with the green wire goes to driver side.
run your wires to the doors (which mine was already done) and clean it up.
then remove the door wire harness by turning this plug and pull it out
then put the new harness back in and run it through the door
now time for power to your window motor..this is what i did with the plugs for the power window motor this is where you will test the switch to see which is up or down.. if you push the switch and its the wrong way then just switch the 2 wires areound and sinch it up.
now its time for the locks..the factory set up you have to switch the gem unit but i had my aftermarket alarm set up in the doors so i just hooked those up since i wasnt using the switches anyways.
same setup here.. splice into the wires and test it.. if its wrong then switch it..
on the driver side there is 4 wires.. its the bigger 2 wires of the 4. i cant remember the color.
since i wasnt using the other switches or the power mirrors i just sinched up teh wires just in case later i changed my mind.
now we start reassembly
the foam and blanket and door latch handle
door panel, mirror wire cover and handle cover
on now on to carpet.. just position and clip in make sure you pull through the plugs and your entertianment wires
now the seat belt bracket
now for the underseat entertainment
now get a buddy you trust and install front seats..
now back seats
now place your rear spare tire cover in..
and the rest of your under seat entertainment..
guess what... YOUR DONE... NOW STAND BACK AND ENJOY!!!!!
Too Fast For Me... TONS OF WHP... GOBBS OF WTQ......
Go ahead put your car where your mouth is....
