HC Front Door Window Repare/Cleaning

Postby Matsuda9 » Tue Jun 30, 2009 12:28 am

well, will post some things :)

did my windows some time ago, so here is progress

Problem: windows falling down, not operating too well, clunky wen going up or down.

these images were made in reverse so bare with me :)

THIS IS FOR HARDTOP BODY ONLY (scans from manual at the end cover sedan too ;))

Legend:
Orange Arrows - Inner panel Screws
Red Arrows - Glass mount nuts
Yellow Circles - Glass stoppers/guides nuts
Cyan Circles - Window Guide nuts
Green Circles - Motor Mount nuts
Red Circles - Motor Guide nuts

Tools:
* Philips Head Screwdriver
* Flat Head Screwdriver
* 10mm Socket, open end wrench
* 12mm Socket, open end wrench
* 12mm or 10mm security torx(?) [star shaped] - this is to remove the guides that failed on

0.
remove the mirror

1.
remove screws (No3 Philips head) the door handle screws are hiding behind clip on panels that will require gentle persuasion by flathead screwdriver
Remove the inner door panel (its on the clips, will have to giggle the door opener to get it through the opening). disconnect two electrical connectors (window switch and door light)
Image


2.
remove plastic (good idea to replace it, i didn't do it, so will have to open it up again)
Image


3.
reconnect the window switch and move window down till you see the glass mount nuts(red Arrows) (then remove the switch)
Image
Image


4.
Remove glass stoppers and bumps (yellow circles)
Image

Stopper:

5.
Remove the glass nuts (supporting the glass by hand) (red Arrow) then remove glass from the door

what has failed:
Image
Image
Image
these sit in the motor rail guide
the replacement was not all that good either, they are poly bushes, but they loose shape and crumble. trying to find an alternative


all greased up:

Installation is the reverse of the above.

Important:
you will have to spend some time matching the stoppers and guides, by putting window up and closing the door, seeing how it sits against the rubbers and then readjust (real pain of the process)

This woulda been really helpful, I just replaced a broken runner in my drivers door, wish I read this first. I had no trouble getting the trim off, it was getting the window out, but I got there in the end.

Fantastic article by the way. The 929 really needs its own site, so come on guys, lets keep up the good work:)

I wish I had your setup. Where the motor pulls a cable. My motor pulls on a bunch of little "balls" and they are so worn, they just click when you try to rull up the window. So annoying. Wonder if I can replace them with your type?
