I have removed the rear seats from the virtual cabin but then when looking back in vc view the cabin door appears to be open.
How can i close it?

You can't. The door is removed when you remove the rear seats to help increase performance. If you pan around the cockpit, you will not see the missing door because the headrest blocks the view. You only see the missing door (and missing seats) when you use snap views. This is by design.

...and I believe mentioned in the manual also.
Always got to give a promotional plug to the manual I spent all that time writing! ;-)
From page 4-4:
The Virtual Cockpit also features certain options to assist with your computer’s performance (frame rates), and these options are also available on the “AIRCRAFT” page in the Configuration Control.
1. Virtual Cockpit Visible (show / hide the VC)
2. Remove Reflective Glass (removes the glass windows from the VC)
3. Remove 3 Rear Cabin Seats and 1 Rear Cabin Door
NOTES: These options are only seen within the VC, and will not appear on the external aircraft model. They are not intended to simulate any “operational” or “failure” condition, and are strictly provided to lessen the impact the VC has on your computer system.
When the VC is removed, the wings and horizontal stabilizer will remain for use with the 2D interior views. You will also note a small “part” of the VC remaining in the lower half of your screen. This is required to remain for the landing / taxi lights to work.
When the 3 rear seats and 1 rear door are removed, you will NOT even see this if you pan around the cockpit from the pilot’s seat. This is why one seat remains, as it is the seat you would see when panning."

That's ok, thanks. i'll look up the manual in future to see if the answer's in there.
