    How hard is it to fit a new front passenger door?

    anyone?

    I bet its the alignment that is the hardest part?

    Thanks

    Tom

    Cheers guys, had a run in with a polish lorry the weekend or should I say he hit me and although the damage is not that bad I need two new trims on the door and a smallish dent/crease taking out, am thinking it may be easier and cheaper to replace the door as there is one on eBay going for not much and it's black!

    I'm guessing all B6 front doors are the same apart from cabs or is this not true?

    B7 doors fit but the panel has a slightly different mould to it.

    B7 doors are not the same, yes they will fit and shut but the lines won't match at all

    Cheers guys the doors from a 03 plate A4 B6, on a separate note are all wing mirrors interchangeable from B6 and B7? people on ebay seem to say that they are the same?
