    Default 505 window removal?

    I need to remove the window from the drivers door, it must be in one piece too. How do you do it? I've never removed a car window before so I have no idea even where to start.

    I might have to let the panel beaters do this one. :S

    Thanks

    Normally you disconnect the regulator, take off the wind seals inside and out and swing the guide (inside the lower, hard to get at, section of the door) clear.

    After that it's a juggling act to get the glass out through the opening in the door lifting upwards.

    Sometimes you need to turn the window 90 degrees to get it out.

    If you think dis-assembly is PITA then assembly is twice a bad.

    I wish you good luck.

    505s are a LOT easier than many cars.

    The first step is to put the window down about an inch from the top.
    Then simply remove the door trim, disconnect the electrical plug to the regulator, then undo the 4 nuts that hold the regulator to the door. You then push the regulator bolts through while holding the window up. Then you can lower the window down, and rotate it far enough to slide the regulator off the track on the bottom of the window. Then the window simply slides out the top, on about a 90 degree angle!

    Reassembly is the reverse of the above procedure.

    Once you do it once, it will make perfect sense, and it becomes only about a 3 minute job!
