    door latch falling out WTH?????

    noticed my drivers side door latch was missing a screw and the other two were about to fall out! hello...door about to fly open of its own accord! needless to say, screwdriver, loctite, and a trip to the hardware store. anybody else had this with bug-eyes? common? i am going through the rest of them tonight for the same treatment.

    I had my lock barrel fall into the door upon inserting my key. I lost the bolt that held it in so i had to disassemble the passenger door so i could purchase a similar bolt for the drivers side.
    Find a low-mileage one-owner unmodified '04/'05 and you're golden.

    Understeer is when you hit the wall with the front of the car.
    Oversteer is when you hit the wall with the rear of the car.
    Horsepower is how fast you hit the wall.
    Torque is how far you take the wall with you.

    oh jeez. welp, i have to disassemble the doors again to finish the speaker upgrade and sound dynomating. looks like ill have to pass a carefull eye over all the door locking parts when i do. the service records say most of the doors have been serviced for all kinds of stuff like windows and interior work. the other doors were tight but i locktited the other screws anyway. this is going to be a multi passenger go fast(80=fast) car so saftey first lol. i dont need doors flopping around on the highway n'stuff!
