Sorry I could not help with your vents question but good to see others on here have the knowledge !
Have you tried removing the cover to the rear window mechanism (brass plate) ? I wanted to on mine as the passenger side window is stuck (round knob will not turn). I've tried undoing the bolts but it looks like there has to be a way of holding the nut on the other side as the bolt just loosens some way but won't come fully undone.
Anyone else encountered this problem ?
Thanks for that.
I haven't removed these plates yet. I know Kevjtd did some work on the rear winders on this one as he used to own it. The drainage pipes had become blocked and caused water to sit in the winder area.
hi to you both, nice to see you getting stuck in with the car mark
as for the winder mechanism it was a while back since i took them apart and my memory is useless but i did find this pic which refreshed me a bit
sem to remember there being 2 or 3 10mm socket sized bolts holding it all to the car, once they are out the whole unit is lowered down with the glass then it can be un-hooked from each other
the 2 halves can then be seperated (are there a few screws, maybe from behind
) once the unit is off the car. quite a simple case of then freeing everything up and sanding/filing all the rust off the moving parts
make sure it all gets plenty of grease before you build it all back up though as it can sit idle for a few months and without grease it will just sieze up again
i guess marks are still working ok? think they were both siezed up when i got the car
post some pics on a new thread if you get stuck and i will refresh my memory
