sliding door stopper.

I am installing a screen on the sliding door opening, and I need to fully open the door to gain access. The stopper keeps the door from fully open, and I recall someone on this forum had removed the stopper to allow access to the sliding step electrical connections. Before I blindly move ahead with this removal, I need to know if there is anything that I should be aware of? Is it simply a matter of removing the torx screws? Anny advice or suggestions would be welcome.. Thanks... Bill

Not sure about what your looking to do but I do have a question about stopper.

With the stopper in place does the door stay in a 'locked open' position until you release it via the door handle? The same way it does when fully open without door stopper.

Yes it is as easy as removing the screws. The door open all the way now. The only problem I see on mine is the cup holder in the door will touch the edge when moved back. This leaves a black mark which I hope will be easy to clean up.
And yes the stopper makes the door lock in the open position.

So they finally put a cup holder on the door. Will have to check that out as the second row needs them.

Yes not sure when but my 2013 has 1 in the door and on behind the driver seat on the side panel. The cup holder sticks about 1/4" out and moving the door back it hits the edge. I can push the cup holder more then 1/4" in so it should be possible to somehow keep it in so it does not make the edge.

I don't think we'll be able to add them on as the picture in the brochure shows them to be recessed into the door and into the side panel behind the driver. And they're probably very expensive if other replacement parts are an example.
