Another job done - Passenger Window Regulator Changed

Feeling quite chuffed with myself Today, had read that it was a really awkward fiddly job but managed it with little problem at all... took about 2.5 hours all in but that was cos i didn't even know how to get the door card off... once the old one was out it took me about 25mins to get the new one in, the door card on and everything sorted....

Couple of tips for anyone attempting it...

1 - Tape the window up, another forum user suggested this to me and it made a real difference, couple of strips of duck tape done the job.... holds the window in the same position which makes it easier to work and also little adjustment at the end, none in my case but by all accounts i was just lucky!

2 - As previously mentioned make sure the lock mechanism is working before you start tightening the door card up... i had read the tip and sure enough first time round the inner handle didn't work... thankfully i had a helper to open it from the outside..

If amyone has any further questions feel free to give me a shout...


P.S - Flying through my list now, that's 2 jobs in about 3 months!! ; )
