    I watched a few online tutorials about installing dynamat and products like it. They showed putting the dynamat on the outside of the door, where the plastic rain shield is. However, I was watching a show on HDNET where they put the dynamat on the inside of the door, on the body itself (does that make sense). Is this a good idea, it seems like it is, and relatively easy to install there. They showed how it made the door sound more solid, when you taped on it, which made sense. I have a few sheets left over. This should improve the bass response more right?

    Nope. Unless you go to a junk yard

    So how hard would it be to "convert" the rear doors to electric handles? Hmmm.

    There is definitely some work involved, in fact I really don't think it is possible.

    Each door handle has two switches, one that connects directly to the RCDLR (separate inputs left and right side) and on that connects to the respective door module. In addition, each door has an antenna that connects to a separate input on the RCDLR. I can't see any way to add these components in such a way that the car will be able to recognize and properly respond to a handle pull. Then there is the process of converting to an electric latch in the rear doors.

    I've thought about this myself but I came to a lot of dead ends...

    one more question when you lubricate the parts with lithium grease before re assembly do you put any around the lock when doing the driver side? I think locks need a special powder type lube but forgot

    All your info has been great. I have an additional question however......does the outside door handle have a mechanical connection tothe inside unlatching mechanism? I found some frayed wires leading to the lock mechanism and taped them but the door will still not
    open from the outside.....I still have to use my key to get in. All other doors are ok. Fobs are ok. Thanks again for the help.

    Correct.
    For the front doors no mechanical connection from outside.
    (Rear are different)

    Re: Drivers Door Micro Switch Replacement "How-To" Part 2

    I have found this thread to be extremely helpful. After some investigating and tearing apart of the door, I think my problem is the antenna. Any thoughts on how to replace/fix this?

    Thanks.
