[DML] Re: Doors and idle speed

The whole door linkage adjustment procedure is complicated. The
Workshop Manual explains it best. You need to follow the procedure in
the order it tells you. Don't take short-cuts or do things
out-of-sequence. One thing you have to do before starting is to make
sure the anchor pins are adjusted so the door closes without binding
on both pins and BOTH front AND rear latches achieve the second
locking position. Cleaning and lubricating the latches and the linkage
is also a good idea before adjusting.
For the throttle, disassemble, clean, lubricate, and reassemble the
throttle spool. Relubricate the cable as per the recall. Check for
looseness in the ends of the quadrant link. You can put the spring on
the throttle spool into the next, tighter slot to stiffen up the cable
but if it is working smoothly and is properly lubricated it shouldn't
be necessary.
