That's a strong possibility.

I didn't try to pull the wire out of the door, really. It unplugs from the body side, so that can't be pushed into the door...and I don't think there's much play with the wires, but there may be...haven't really pursued that, but it could make it a bit easier to have even a few extra inches to work with.
