FU*K my lambo doors just fell off...

my car is not a daily driver ,im always really careful opening the doors , and i decided to take it out tonight to the shopping center . so i just got in my car and slowy pull my doors down , then out of nowhere BAM -CRASH my doors came falling down smack down on my car,close to the floor . fu#k now im going to have to bring it to the shop again . i dont know what the hell is going on . something happen inside of the hinges. maybe its bad installation or i really hope that my hinges did not break apart , that would be a few grand to replace. i was really worried that it will punch a hole right out of my fenders . it didnt seem to happen . but it did knock off my side kits. i will have to check it in the day to be sure if it ripp into anything in my car .i sure hope my shop does not charge me a few hundred dollars to put it back. this really sucks big time! cry cry cry

DAMN man!! I can't believe that...that shop you went to must be pretty damn bad. I've seen you post about previous problems w/ your doors. If it's the install, the shop should take care of it for free. It's their fault, not yours.

install myself, no way . its not as easy as it seems . my shop is a shop which does a lot of custom work for car shows. they have a lot of showcars in everyday. and even they had a hard time doing the doors . they had 2 people , including the owner work on it. it took both of them from 9am to 8pm to finish. they said its not that hard to install the doors BUT the rewiring of all the radios,power windows,alarm system,etc was a bit*h. they also have to take off the front end of the car and the side fenders as well. just that will take a lot of time. even they almost gave up ,when they could not figure out why the alarm was not coming back on. but after some more sweat and hard work they found out what the problem was. trust me its ALOT of work . its almost like taking apart the entire car and putting it back again in a new custom way. because wires will have to be extened. anyways i will let you all know what really happen as soon as i find out in the next day or so. angry

hi i dont really want to say that my kit is bad until i find out for sure if its the kit or the installation from my shop.thats because the kit was bought from a very professional place , and a very helpful person. so i do not want to put them down , it might not be the hinges at all or it could be .thats why i want to know for sure before i say anything about them. as for installation its not as cheap as it sounds when installing them these shops around are greedy. why dont you go out there and ask all the shops in your area about the price to install them. and let us know what they will charge you to do it. i bet it will not be cheap. it normally goes for 400.00 - 700.00 depending on what shop.thats what i got here i went to everyshop in maryland were im located and ask around about 95% of the shop said they will not even do it because of insurance and crap like that. so its cuts it down to only 5% of the shops that i can choose from . thats my expierence for installing them. others have said different things . but thats my 2 cents. why dont you go out and find out what they will really charge you to install them . its better than just guessing. better safe than sorry. smile

my deepest sympathy's
Im pissed at getting things in the mail broken, so I know how you feel... But Trust me, you should be able to tell if its the kit or the install and if its the install you DO NOT HAVE TO PAY A CENT... Just be firm with them, your the customer, you have power... thumbsup

Dude your shop ARE idiots..The Carexcess kit dosn't require that your extend your wires first off. I have a theory and tell me if I'm close or not.

Go look at your car, put your door up(if you still can), Look under the gas shock and tell me if there is a little silver pin holding the shock in place. Next, look at the top of the shock and see if there are any threads showing (the top gets screwed into the hinge)

ok its actually just the drivers side door, which fell and i was still at home getting ready to leave, good thing huh.but anyways i just stop by my shop and talk to them about this . the shop owner said that from peaking into it. the bolts are still on the doors but it looks like the piston(the shocks) which had a screw on it pop out. he try to tell me that if thats what happen it will not be their fault .so it will be a few hundred dollars more for them to take it apart again. that would really suck. then its time for the blame game again he said when the kit came in the shocks were already attached to the hinges. that is bull sh*t . hey wil you know what i mean . the shocks do not come attached to the hinges. i remember when i got them . the shop said that i will have to call the place were i got my hinges and tell them that the shocks pop out from bad craftmanship.come on the hinges does not seem to be broken ,so that must be bad installation on the shop . they are the ones who put the bolts on and it came off.i mean the bolts is not attached to my car until they do it right???? wtf after 45 min of bullsh*t then the owner said oh yeah i think we had to screw the shocks on . so then he will open it up and look at it to make sure on friday. they better not charge me again if this is their fault that it did not stay on. angry saying if this is bad installation then that again only proves your kit is only as good as your installer. i wished that i had found another shop to do this. it wolud have save a lot of wasted time .i guess until friday i will know for sure SAYING if they actually tell me the truth. i will update you soon. cry cry cry

Bullsh*t man!!! Tell them its their fault...That shock has to be hand screwed into the hinge on top. The botton has to be inserted into a hold at the bottom of the hinge and then clamped w/ a metal clip which is supplied..They did not install it right.

PS: did I not hit that one dead on about the shock not being on right or what smile

Hey Wil, try this one on for size.

You know about the kit that i have. Well my shock finally blew out and now you can't lift the door up at all. I did get it all the way up and now it won't come down. There was 2 of us hanging on my door with our feet off the ground trying to get the door closed!!!! I am really starting to hate this MOD...

Now i have to try and figure out how to get the door closed so i can drive 3 hours to my shop to get it fixed!!!!!!

yeah...i am still wondering what kit it is? then again maybe he does not want to say because it is not the kit that was defective but the installation that was defective.

or the kit could be the one that starts with a G, as in Generic

it could be the kit, it could be the installation.. it could be a lot of things. I just don't understand keeping the brand a secret. If it's not the kit, it's not like we won't believe that the crappy installation caused the problem. Plenty of other people have the carexess kit, and I have not heard one person say that their door fell off

Jamie, if you are who I think you are...I believe I told you Springmans was sh*t when I got the carexcess kit. ComicBookGuy has Carexcess hinges, but from what I've heard and he has told me, the shop screwed up big time. It's not a hard mistake to make w/ the install, but it can be costly if the hinge isn't screwed in all the way.

Thanks wil.

I left him a message. Mark (Springmans) is going to fix the hinge the first week in Augest for me. I don't have any extra money right now for Ian to help me out, unless he can help me out for free, which would be awesome, but doubtful.

How is Ian about returning messages???

Thanks again,

ok wil i will call ian right now. i want to learn more about what happen so that my shop cant ripp me off saying its something else that broke. wil can you beleive what the shop told me . they said the hinge was bad quality and they will have to remake it so that it will hold better. these guys just what to charge me more money to do it. that will screw my warranty too from decah. i will tell them just install it the way its should be . im going to tell ian this and see what he thinks . the carexcess kit should work good if its installed right. theres no need for a shop to customize it . come on, thats plain stupid. i want my kit the way it should be. nothing more or less. angry

I heard that some of those kits arent of good quality, so sometimes they tend to fall down.

huh? im going to bring it to the shop today friday morning, i try to get in touch with ian but he was busy . so i left a message for him to call me back. but all i know is im going to let the shop know to NOT custom my hinges to make it to the way they think is best .they only want to do this because if they just screw it back on they will get no money for the labor. so if they customize it they will get 300.00 to 450.00 dollars from me . thats fu*king crazy. i will NOT pay them anymore just to put it back on right . i paid them to do it right the first time already . they got 500.00 dollars for that . and now they messed up so they want more . no fu*king way... angry
