     SERVICE ACTION SA-0005
     PROTECTION CAP ARMREST EXTENSION





     When entering or exiting the vehicle, the occupant's
     clothing may come into contact with the rear armrest
     extensions of the vehicle causing premature wear of
     the armrest extension covering.

     To prevent such wear, and with permission of the vehicle
     owner, protection caps may be installed according to the
     procedures on the reverse side of this page.

                                  PROCEDURES

INSTALLATION:

1.   Clean the face (contact area) of the armrest extension with solvent to
     remove any dirt or protective coatings applied since delivery.

2.   Remove the adhesive strip backing (green) from the protective cap.

3.   Position the protective cap (set - Part #W-300002) onto the face of the
     armrest extension and press firmly to assure proper adhesion.  Do not
     attempt to remove the cap once it is placed.  The adhesive requires 24 hrs.
     to completely cure.

     SERVICE ACTION SA-0006
     DOOR LATCH GUIDES





     Door latch guides are available to facilitate the closing
     of the doors and to prevent jamming of the door latches
     during improper closing of the doors.  For example, pushing
     at the ends of the doors and/or pushing sideways when
     closing may offset the approach alignment of the door
     latches to the striker pins leading to incomplete latching
     or damage to the latches and/or striker pins.

     In order to prevent the aforementioned difficulties, door
     latch guides are provided as a service installation.

     It is recommended that these guides be installed on all
     De Lorean vehicles not so equipped according to the following
     instructions.
















                                                            BULLETIN ST-14-9/81

                            PROCEDURES




     GENERAL:

     Two kits of door latch guides are available

          WA W300003 - For vehicles up to VIN 1100

          WA W300004 - For vehicles from VIN 1100

     Each kit contains:

          1 - Guide left door front
          2 - Guide left door rear
          1 - Guide right door front

                           PROCEDURES (Continued)

INSTALLATION:

1.   Grind the outer edge of the striker pin as illustrated in Figure A inset.
     This grinding should be performed with a 60 grid, mandrel-mounted
     abrasive wheel with a concave end (1" wheel diameter/1" wheel thickness/
     1½" shank length/½" shank diameter - Snap-On #VWC-109 or equivalent).

2.   Adjust the striker pin as required to ensure pin is correctly positioned
     to properly be secured with the latch.

3.   Position the appropriate door latch guide on the door as illustrated in
     Figure A.  Using a center punch, mark the fastener locations by guiding
     the punch through the mounting holes in the positioned guide.

                                                            BULLETIN ST-14-9/81

                    PROCEDURES (Continued)

INSTALLATION (Continued):

4.  Remove guide and drill fastener "starter" holes using a 5/32" cobalt
    drill bit at the marked locations.

5.  Apply Loctite "Stud N' Bearing Mount" fastener adhesive onto the
    underside of the screwheads before installation.

6.  Position and secure the door latch guide with the zinc plated, oval
    head screws (#12 x 1") supplied with the kit.

7.  Inspect the door latch (white plastic) and door guide contact/mating
    area for proper alignment.  If this area does not properly align due
    to the door guide area extending out from the door latch, thus creating
    a "ledge", grind the door guide with a power grinder until a 1/32"
    positive guide alignment is achieved.  Excessive grinding (less than
    a 1/32" positive guide alignment) must be avoided.  Failure to achieve
    a proper fit could result in the striker pin catching on the door
    guide when the door is being opened, or damaging the door latch when
    the door is closed.  (See Figure A.)

8.  Repeat the above procedures for the remaining three (3) door latch
    guides.


    IMPORTANT:  In vehicles with VIN numbers 3000 and below there are
                potentially three (3) different configurations of door
                latch guide areas.  We have tooled stainless steel
                guides for all three configurations.  Generally, however,
                the VIN number designation by part number on page 6 of
                the bulletin will reflect the appropriate set of guides.
                The guides are designed to fit flush on all doors provided
                the appropriate guides are used.  If the guides you
                receive do not fit flush, please contact our parts depot
                and we will send you the appropriate set of guides.

          GLOVE COMPARTMENT LATCH - REINFORCEMENT STRIP





          In instances where difficulties in closing the glove
          compartment cover are encountered, a reinforcement
          strip (Part #W-300005) may be installed according to
          the procedures on the reverse side of this page.
