Door cards are a set of panels that are located inside the doors of a motor vehicle. These components have three primary purposes.
The first of these is decorative. A full set of door cards will normally match all of the other interior décor of the car, including the upholstery of the seats and the carpets. The second role is to contain the wiring and other system components that are housed within the cavity of the doors. Finally, the door cards provide invaluable insulation against the cold and dampen down the noise levels that are able to infiltrate the vehicle.
Because the doors of a car are in such frequent use and, additionally, because the door cards are often open to external elements, they can become somewhat worn over time. If one or more door cards does become damaged or worn it is possible to buy a replacement part. Although it is possible to buy individual door cards, because those that remain in the car will inevitably look older and more worn, it is preferable to fit an entirely new full door card set. The door cards are easily attached to the inside of the doors using a set of clips, which are also provided when the full door card set is purchased.
