    Pull the whole regulator mechanism out, give it a good clean, as well as the bushes where they bear on the window bracket, then lube everything that moves or slides liberally with zinc based PH grease (rather than silicone spray). It'll be good for another 50 years.

    Perhaps try a silicone spray in the channels for the glass and a bit of spray lube in the axle of the winder first? You might strike lucky! The external rubber seal can generate a lot of friction too, sometimes.

    Usually the bailey channel causes no problems, unless the glass is skewed from it being worn. If it is tight, I'd be using talcum powder rather than silicone spray. Similar with the outer window scraper, if it exists on the car, it is very likely very hard and brittle rather than pressing on the glass.

    It is usual for the grease to be past its use-by date now, and the winder, its tiny gear, and the sector arm is dry and slides on the glass get sticky and tight. A quick spray is like a sugar hit. Whilst the door trim is off (given the plastic clips, you don't want to remove it a lot :-)), it is opportune to give it a good clean and proper lube. Also it gives an opportunity to check the door cavities out and a preventative spray of fishoil or your fave rust preventative.

    Gday all, sorry for the silence but I've been on annual leave 👍

    While away I've flushed the brakes and filled the system with DOT4. No leaks (yet) and treated the 10 with an oil change and a new Purflux oil filter (shout out to French car care in Brisbane for supplying the filter). To my next task; Does anyone know how to restore rusty old belt buckles? I'll upload a photo shortly

    It sounds like it might be time to replace them with new. Who knows what the webbing is like, if the buckles are rusted. See the link below, they even have a listing for a Renault 10.

    Thanks Simon, they look good but I would love to use the originals if possible.
    I have two of these with this one in the worst condition

    I have to agree with Simon. Originality is all good, but seat-belts are a disposable item In that they wear out, and that's ok. Repco / Supercheap often stock a lap-sash style belt. I replaced some in my 504 once.

    Either way. If they are like the 12, various grades of sandpaper and silvo polish at the end to make it sparkly.

    After a while off the spanners I'm back on the 10 thanks to the good people at Mecaparts. Just fitted sway bar bushes and started on the belt mouldings and the rotton Bailey channels on the rear doors.

    Hey all,
    How do you adjust the handbrake on an R10? also does anyone know where you find new door card clips?

    There is a large lock nut (brass)on the inside of the rear calipers that has a long bolt with a 14mm head with some thread showing through it. The hand brake cable outer stops in the end of this long bolt via a swivel assembly. So undo the lock nut and turn the long bolt inward which pushes a small eccentric on the handbrake lever arm harder onto the brake pad and causes the handbrake lever arm to also angle away from the caliper tightening the cable.

    You will need to keep turning the wheel whilst adjusting so as to check the brake is not dragging, and that both sides are even.

    Hard to explain, easy to do.

    Adding to Alan's description, you'll find workshop manuals fairly easy to find on ebay. I'd buy one if I were you!

    You'll also find a big shifter, not too thick, is needed to loosen the big nuts and I would suggest you don't tighten them much afterwards, just nip them up. You can make a good special spanner out of steel plate too, which will encourage not overtightening the big nuts! The long bolts can seize too, so hopefully yours are fine. I try to tighten both sides exactly the same number of turns, presuming yours were even to start with, which might be optimistic!

    Cheers
