OK Guys

I am in process of buying a house which has an old garage where I will be able to keep my baby safe. B) The garage is 22’deep and 11’6 wide inside BUT it has a sectional electric door fitting to a 7’0 wide opening which my car won’t go through.

So I need to purchase a wider door, preferably 9’0” to 10’0” (2743mm to 3m) wide and preferably one which will work with the existing opener – the 850 model shown on this Easygates site.

Has anyone here got any advice about where to get a suitable garage door? My neighbour has offered to do all necessary brickwork and put in any necessary lintel. It has to be a sectional door as the garage butts onto the pavement.

PS - There is a 3.5" x 2" blanking plate just above the handbrake (sic) release lever which I believe covers an open pocket for the garage remote. Can someone advise that if I prize this cover off there is definitely a recess behind it. I should hate to end up with a hole in the facia :tomato:

I know a chap who works for a garage door company, I'd trust his advice. I can put you in touch with him if you'd like (PM me - also, approx where do you live? My man is in North Wales).

As regards that panel; I'm not sure what's behind it, but it'd be interesting to find out. In the Mk1 & Mk2 cars it had a switch to turn off the remote central locking... Someone here will know.

On my Mk3 behind that blanking plate there is space and access. On my car it just popped out and went back in easily enough so dont panic too much if you remove it. I would advise you look at it as you take it out as it is shaped to fit one way or at least it is on mine.
