Replace door panel with rusted screws
Replacing the door panel is a 5 minute job if the 8 screws are in "working" order. The issue was that water had leaked down over the years and the two iron screws at the bottom of the panel were rusted tight. Making things worse, access is limited to less than 4 inches. Soaked each in liquid wrench - was able to break one free using power bit held in vice grips. The second wouldn't budge. Removed all remaining screws and broke the door free of the remaining problem screw. After several soakings and brushing with the liquid wrench I was finally able to work the screw free. Once the final screw was out, reassembly took only a few minutes. Door looks great. Thank you PartSelect.
