Step1: Remove door switch pad
- Using T15 Torx tool, remove the two screws holding the switch pad to the door. Do not disconnect the electrical harness from the switch.
Step 2: Insert back support
- Attach a back support to rear of door switch pad as shown.
Step 3: Install door switch pad with Door Dog
- Place the door switch pad back into position on the door. While holding pad in place, align door dog with mounting holes.
Insert new screws and tighten using T15 Torx tool. Tighten screws to approximately 10-11 in/lbs. Do not over-tighten.
Step 4: Test
- While door is still open, pull the handle of the Door Dog to test the door release trigger point. It should trigger the release just
before the handle reaches its travel stop. Test the Door Dog by pulling and releasing the handle several times. If needed, the door release point can be adjusted by rotating the rubber plunger to lengthen or shorten its position.
- Next, SLOWLY close the car door while watching for any interference. Once the door is fully closed and latched, pull the Door Dog handle to
open the door. Push against the Door Dog handle to close the door. Repeat this test until you are satisfied that the door can be opened and closed
using the Door Dog. If your door fails to open, you can open it using cable release in trunk or inside floor board near door.
- The C7 Corvette Door Dog is designed and fabricated to robustly operate for the life of your car. However, like any mechanical part subject to the
elements it can benefit from routine maintenance. Using a T15 Torx tool, remove your Door Dog from the car door. Inspect the rubber plunger for wear,
damage, or hardening. The rubber plunger is an inexpensive replaceable part. If in doubt, contact Sandyeggo Designs to order a new one. Examine stainless
steel parts for any surface rust. If found, remove it using common rust removal techniques. Reinstall the Door Dog to the car door. Caution: Do not over-tighten
the mounting screws.
- The Door Dog is pre-lubricated at the factory. To lubricate, spray a high grade silicon lubricant liberally on all moving surfaces. Operate the
handle several times to ensure the lubricant penetrates into the plunger assembly. Allow the lubricant to dry completely. Do not use any petroleum based lubricant!
