Default Ghia door striker assembly
Re:: parts assembly   

I am trying to repair the door strikers on my '65 Ghia. The doors did not close properly when I bought the car. Upon futher inspection I found that the PO had filled the door striker chingadere with silicone and left the broken peices in it. There was not enough of the broken peices in it to determine how/where these peices go.

I ordered a repair kit [seemed like a no brainer] but i can't seem to get the doors to close properly. The haynes manual only shows pics of the later model Ghis door striker.

Does anyone have a pic of how these should be assembled? If you have a Ghia will you please take a pic of the door striker on you car so I can compare?

I have attached some pics of what I have. So you may see what I have to work with.

Thanks in advance,

looks like yours are in better shape than mine. I was planning on switching to small bearclaws on my '65 ghia when I get that far... in about 10 or 15 years. :)

I was able to find that the Black piece goes on the bottom, white piece on top with the spring behind it..... Now what I need to know is what the spring looks like and where I might be able to buy it?
Thanks to the fellas at kg.org
