Barn Door Compatibility Issues?

Barn Door Compatibility Issues?

Postby jcivince [OP] » November 20th 2008, 11:19pm

I'm looking to replace the barn doors on my 95 Astro and was wondering if there are any compatibility issues from different years... I'm replacing due to rust...living in Michigan will do that! If anyone has doors that they are selling and are within a few hours of Grand Rapids, Michigan (west side of Michigan, near Lake Michigan), I'd like to hear from you on color and price. Color doesn't really matter - more curious than anything. Slider would also be great if available! My daily email is vince.boraas at jci.com.
Thanks!

I think the barn doors are the same.
For the slider, you may have to get year-specific(from what I heard)
General Motors master tech from friendly Manitoba.

Perfecting the fine art of more cost, less performance, since 1987!

Not completely sure of this, but I believe that there were some sheet metal changes when the 1996 model cameout (new interior design). The slider is different on the top roller track arm, and the barn doors were modified for the plastic trim pieces in a few spots, nothing a sharp drill can't fix.

Thanks Guys! I'm moving forward with replacement - just need to figure & get whatever the tool is for removing the door pins (seem to remember reading in one of the posts here that this is critical).

Thanks 'cudapaul - got it ordered and will be here already on Monday! I'm still looking for a replacement slide door for my 95 so if anyone knows of one out there that isn't rusted, I'd really like to know about it
Thanks Again!!
