Is there a way to extend how far the rear doors open? I have a dog ramp I need to put in the side but the door does not open far enough for me to fit the ramp.

Sure, take off door stop and Torx for hinge extends all the way open. It is the same step to remove them

Just be aware that the door is then free to be completely open.

I believe it could then swing full open against the front door and cause damage.

Thank you for your replies. I have removed the lower torx screw but my problem is I Cannot get the door to close unless I reattach it. Is there a way to keep this lower hinge disconnected So I don’t have to keep on unscrewing it to use my ramp.
