Finally tracked down a garage door on ebay and it was delivered today.. But it appears to be broken!! :angry: :(

Front

Open

Closed

As you can see it won't close :mellow:

Has anyone got any ideas? is there something I need to do to get it to close or will it only close when I fit it in my car? Or is it in fact broken and the nob head breakers sent me damaged goods? They posted it already open and it was well wrapped in layers and layers of take and bubble wrap so there's no way it was damaged in transit.

No point fitting it to my car if its not going to close so if any one can offer up any help it would be greatly appreciated :)

Its had too much of that chinese tea hasn't it...?

Mine was a bit gammy when i first got it, and never closed, but over time with use it now works perfectly.

to close mine i just push the door downwards and in,

I dont know, however, if yours is going to be the same :)

Maybe someone will come along with something useful to say :)

:)

That's as they are, mine is the same.
The door lines up with the front of the cubby trim.
I looked at mine when I got it and had a head scratch and a think.
Figured it out.
If you look where the hinges etc are the door will not physically go any further down.

Fit it and see what happens.

Saves sending it back, them fitting it, calling you an idiot then sending it back out!

Once again your right uncle stoney but a little late. When i first looked at it i saw it physically couldn't close any more but weren't sure if it was supposed to be like that or if i had been screwed over and it was majorly broken. Was in a bit of a rage already from work so I went with the latter and got on the forum. Then right after posting i thought about it properly and thought oooh.. Test fitted it and its all cushty :D Just gotta carbon wrap it now and cut a hole in it for power supply so i can still use my satnav.

Oh yeah, some reason there was a fair bit of sand behind the rubber bit that I pull out the cubby hole :wacko: not somewhere you would expect to find sand.

perhaps the donor car was a result of flooding and scrapped due to water damage.
that would have filled the interior carrying dirt and debree with it.

Donor car? Meaning the car the garage door unit came from? I meant actually in my car mate behind the rubber bit that's already in my cubby hole

i thought you ment in the garage door unit so i then assumed the donor car may have gotten somthing in to it via flooding since their has been alot of flooding earleir in the year.
