Re: removing my doors
I am in the process of doing removing the doors also, getting ready for paint. And a few weeks ago, I saw on this board a suggestion of applying heat to the screws. Like a miracle, that's the secret. I borrowed a friends mini torch, and put the heat to the screws. I still had to use the impact driver, but got them out. Several other places on the Sami had screws that I couldn't remove either, and I just put the torch to them, and wahlah, out they came.
Bottom line is this, you gotta have one of these little torches if you're taking a Sami apart. Suzuki used some kind of Loctite on every screw in these things, and you need a little heat to break the bond.
