Been working on my full doors and I was messing with the rods that run to the latch. Right now they're bent out of whack, hard to install and the regulator hits them when I roll the window up or down . Anybody have any good pics or tips ?

If you got me a few weeks ago, I could have sent you pictures. I rebuilt my full doors from two complete sets. I took the best part from each to build the one I will keep. I put the remaining pieces together anticipating selling them.

Thanks guys ! I got them bent . I think they'll work but for some reason my latch isn't opening the door even If i disconnect the rods and operate the latch by hand....... ?

Update I think I got it. Same problem I was having with the other door. The rods have to be as straight as necessary to allow the unlock/lock lever to cycle through full range of motion before the next step (opening the door) will work.
I'm learning the doors a little. The rods have to be bent to clear the window track and regulator but not be so bent they wont reach the latch levers to allow the levers the full range of motion. And the feel of the lock button depends on the bend/ overall length after bending of the rod rods too. It all has to have freedom of movement

And lots of oil!!! I use WD40 and then white silicone grease to keep them moving. If they start to gum up, they will not work.

I saw one once after a bit of paint that the painter had threaded the rod through the window regulator, did neither any good.
