do ya want to emphasize on what you call a lock pin?

your not referring to the interior door locking caps that screw on to the door pins are you?

I just screwed them in with my hands clockwise until they were flush when locked.. You can also use a wrench to grip them while twisting, but you might want to put a towel or cloth in between the wrench and pin so you don't scratch it up.

Your left elbow will thank you later. I did this for both front doors and it worked out great. No cutting or removing.

i was refering to these: sorry for not being more clearhttp://www.allfordmustangs.com/photo...m/IMG_7831.JPG

hey geevis, i tried that but it didnt work at all. when unscrewing them, you have to go counter-clockwise correct?

hmmm. your's look a little different than my 06 lock pins.. Yeah i believe counter clockwise to unscrew, but I could be mistaken.. It's been a couple of years since I did mine.

my wk got nothing like that. and like geevis said, ours were easy to unscrew. i couldnt get mine flush by just turning so i unscrewed them and cut a bit off of them. then they went down further.

yup am guessing he just used that to let us know what he was talking about, not the specific issue.

anyway, they should just unscrew....right yoda?
