Removing seats to transport a door
I need a new back door, and having found what I want on eBay, I'm faced with figuring out how to shift it. (The journey is about 30 miles, of which 20 is motorway.)
Most likely I'll have to hire a van, but it will just about fit if I remove the passenger seats. So my first question is how difficult is this? (It's a 400, so there are no SRS issues.)
Unfortunately, I estimate that the tailgate won't quite close, which makes me think I might trash the back window if I hit a bump! Any thoughts?
I also have a roof-rack. However, unless there's a trick I don't know of, it's only possible to get the bars about 80cm apart, which just isn't enough.
It's a pity to shell out about £50 in hire costs for just a few inches of difficulty, but I fear it's my only choice, since I'll still save well over £100. The door, incidentally, is a big heavy UPVC affair with a frame, not a lightweight timber job.
