    Default Remove window from ID21 Safari rear door

    I got the window out of the front door, but the rear door with squarish windows (and tracks) is a mystery to me. Anyone have instructions or a video. Will appreciate HOWTO getting the windows (front & rear) reinstalled. Thanks

    Front and rear door glass removal is much the same.

    Language is Dutch but you should get the gist of what is going on. . . using English subtitles can be entertaining

    You're perhaps not:


    • swearing enough
    • created enough open wounds
    • dropped essential tools on the ground which have then rolled under the car just out of reach

    Thanks so much for your timely and video response. Wow, 2 clips did the trick, plus the specialty tool to pry open the U-Clamp. I used a tube from a wind chime (Patty was not too happy) and a little duct tape to make the diameter exact. QED Where do I send a donation for this valuable information? Thanks again.

    That's usually to the exact geographic center of the car, and it isn't just "out of reach", nono. That normally happens when one of your hands, if not both is busily holding something that you juuuuust got aligned, and if you let go, you need to go through that process all. over. again.

    As for cussing enough, I can do that in English, German, Spanish and French. Plus, dad was a US Marine. So there.

    Also check the Dutch forum, quite active with some very knowledgeable members Citroen-Forum.nl - Citroën ID/DS

    *A tip from that site for the door spring clamp is to use the top part and stay of your jack stand - I've not tried this in practice, but it should be quite feasible and a tool all D owners have in their kit.

    Just a curious observation - your quoting of my post above is in lowercase - bit weird

    Yes I thought it weird too. Something was going weird on my PC at the time. I know I typed BRILLIANT, but it came out lower case but did not check the quoted section of your post. Curious. Or is that cURIOUS? Prehpas w'ell nevre konw?
