I finally decided to mount the Garage Door Opener [ GDO ] inside the GDO
Overhead Storage Compartment in the headliner of my Park Avenue.
Velcro holds the GDO in place.
The storage compartment's hinged cover has a rectangle shaped push
button that presses upward and a series of plastic blocks that are
mounted to the inside of the push button then press against the GDO
button - thus opening or closing the garage door.
Wouldn't you know it - I'm 1 block short of a full stack !
My GDO is a Craftsman model and the remotes are very thin.
These blocks look like Lego blocks. Friday night when I went to a
buddy's house I figured I'd swipe of few of his kids Lego's. He's got
thousands and won't miss three or four. Natuarally I take the wrong size
blocks and they won't fit into the blocks GM has provided me. 4 blocks
came with the car when I bought it, but you really need 5 or 6.
I ended up taking a 1 inch wooden dowel rod. Sanded a flat spot on it.
Then wound electrical tape around the dowel rod & the 4 black blocks GM
Now I can press the button in the headliner to open & close the garage
door. I don't have to dig through the armrest storage box or glove box
looking for the GDO anymore. Hidden from view & from thieve's.
