Door Lift Off
We can remove the door very shortly. The door just lifts off as soon you undo a few things. This page also shows why I had to swap out the door latches and a few other things from the old door.
Look No Door!
The door is off! Note the Boxster is also good as a tool cart.
This is the NEW Door's latch cable. It looks a bit different that what I have. This is a problem as the door panel that came off the car will not work with the NEW style cable. Two things are different, one is the way it's held into the door panel. The old one snapped in and was secured with a Ty-wrap, the new one just snaps right in. Also the hook end is different and this will not work with the door handle that is in the existing door panel.

Remove the Hinge Bolts
On the bottom of both hinges are a small 8mm bolt. You need to remove these with an open end wrench. You can get to one with a socket but not the other. Once you have removed these bolts you can simply lift the door off the hinges. This is most satisfying! Initially I though I would have to remove the door hinge brackets off the door but after looking around the exploded parts list online I saw bolts on the bottom and figured this is a better way to go since my door is the same color. So just lift up and off!
