159 window regulator
Just done mine over the weekend on my sw. One company selling for £39 but didn't have any. Bought reg + motor for £68.54. The design was different but fitted and works. Is it possible to see any differences from the photos?
The original on mine had 3 "studs" on each of the vertical bars. These feed through the big metal plate and then attach using nuts. The one I bought had 2 captive nuts on each bar and bolts to connect through the panel. As it failed part way down I needed a bit of assistance from the Mrs to hold the glass while I connected these. The wiring loom comes in through the metal panel and back out through. I think it goes to the door lock, but I didn't have a big enough star drive bit to remove the lock. So I had to do it without removing the panel.
I did the rear a couple of years ago and I managed to do it (and the front) without removing the glass. I just used duck tape up and over the window frame to hold it in place. Used a few old magazine pages over the frame to protect the paint.
I would take a few photos as you go, my camera failed and I've got an electrical connector spare. Hopefully the dash display will give me a clue to what it's for.
