My window regulator on my 65 fastback stopped working this week. Job for tomorrow is to replace the regulator, first time I have played with the door assembly. I have the trim and handles off. I have got to the plastic inner liner thing, can u reuse it as it appears to be glued to the door. Actually looks like glad wrap.
Anyone got any tips of tricks for replacing the regulator. For Kerry it is probably a half hour job, therefore I am giving myself 3 hours ðŸ˜€.
If I get time I will attempt to repaint the rear valance and rear fender after Kerry did some panel beating for me. If anyone in Canberra is bored, feel free to drop in, will be in the shed all day,and fridge is stocked
You will need an assistant. Wind window up until you can see the rollers in the window channel. Have the assistant hold it up while you disconnect the reg. If I am alone (as is most of the time), I use a rubber wedge to jamb in the top to hold the window in place.
This pic shows the window regulator bolts (the 1/2" headed silver ones) .......
With the window up, remove the small channel at the rear (2 X 1/2" nuts) ......
Now you can take out all the bolts holding the regulator in place (as shown in the first pic). This will allow you to slide the regulator back & release the rear roller from the window channel & then move the reg forward to release the front roller. The arms of the reg can now be moved together & the whole unit removed from the door.
Complete unit looks like this ......
Note this is a reg I repaired & where the silver arm attaches to the black section has a nut & bolt. That is not standard as the stock one is a pin with a clip. Remove the clip & the regulator is now separate. Attach the new one & grease as shown ........
Grease all the channels, you only need grease in the top & bottom of those channels where the roller runs. You can remove the rollers (they come off with a clip) & grease the shaft they turn on until they go on & spin freely. Now fit the rollers, with the clip attached, back into the channels, one each end of the window channel & one on the short channel that can now be bolted back in place.
You can now bolt the regulator back in the door & line up each roller with the attaching shaft & press until the clip snaps in place.
Window reg install is now complete.
Good time to grease the lock while you can get to it ......
If you have any issues, call me as I will be working on the property all weekend.
