Electric window mechanism
« on: July 22, 2019, 01:20:17 PM »
I am sure somewhere on site is what i am looking for - but can not find it!

One of my Mk2 Galaxies has a failed NS Front electric window where one guide had worked loose and twisted slight, causing
the nylon block holding the glas clamp to breal off the glass cramp.

I have ordered a new replacement "copy" unit online and hopefully should be complete (less motor).  All else works but the missing
clamp and I am looking for any issues/set up instructions/exploded drawings for when i replace the unit.

I am a technical engineer so should be no problems, but are there any "gotchas" in this?     Door internal exposed and ready (!)

Both clamps have broken off, so what is needed to set the "up" and "down" positions and are there any issues in refitting the motor?

Just need to be prepared!

Just drop the glass down on to the clamps and tighten them up.
