I need to step by step direction on how to remove and return cable on the right automatic sliding door. How do you get enough slack to connect the cable ends?
Do you
have the same problem?

Hello,

There are two different methods of adjusting the sliding door cables here are both in the diagrams below.. Please let us know if you need anything else to get the problem fixed.

Just installed new (used one) Power Sliding door motor with cables on My 2002 Montana. I can't move the door roller but 10-15 cm? Is this due to cable tension system of what?

It sounds like the cables are not adjusted correctly, check out the third diagram on the post above, also can you shoot a quick video with your phone so I can see what's going on? You can upload it with your response.

I would remove the cable hookup to see if the door moves freely, if so, replace the cable/motor assembly. Please let us know how it turns out.

As you can see my second pic, the door is not connected on the roller. So obviously door moves freely but the roller does not move but 10 cm.
Maybe my decreasing tension was bad idea, I should do increasing tension instead?

Yes, I would give it a try, but it still sounds like the cable and motor are the problem.

Problem with motor. Can't be because manual use is possible as well.

Video inside. No moving parts to see, video outside. Same as previous picture?
I don't understand what you could see in video.
