Right Window and Door Hinge

Steps 16.1-16.2

Retrieve your Right Door assembly from the previous kit. Fit the Right Window over the matching posts of the Right Door as shown, and secure it into place with three (3) DS06 screws:

Tighten these screws enough that the window part does not move, but not too much to damage the plastic. This is also your friendly reminder to try using 3-in-One Oil on all screws going into metal:

Step 16.3

Fit the vertical bar of the Door Hinge to the matching recess inside the Right Door.

The ‘R’ marking on the Door Hinge should be facing you:

Steps 16.4-16.5

Place the Door Hinge Flange over the two matching posts of the Right Door, align the screw hole, and secure the flange into place with one (1) DS02 screw.

The tighter this screw is, the harder it will be to open/close the door. Do not over-tighten it to where the hinge cannot rotate:
