With Manual Windows

See Figures 1 and 2

  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2.

  4.  
  5. If the glass is to be replaced or removed, remove the safety catches from the pins on the 2 lower arms and lift out the glass. The regulator can be removed without removing the glass, but the glass must be supported within the door.
  6.  
  7. To remove the regulator, remove the safety clips from the pins on the 2 lower arms.
  8.  
  9. Remove the five bolts holding the regulator to the door and remove the regulator.

To install:
  1. Position the regulator into place and tighten the 5 retaining bolts.
  2.  
  3. Attach the door glass and install the safety pins on the lower arms.
  4.  
  5. Install the window crank handle onto the regulator shaft, and ensure the windows moves smoothly without binding. If the window is binding while moving up or down, and assuming that the regulator and glass are installed correctly, you might need to lubricate the run channels. There are specific lubricants for windows, however a good lubricating fluid or silicone spray lubricant will do the job.

  9. Remove the bolts holding the regulator and remove the regulator from the door.
  10.  

To install:
  1. When reinstalling, tighten the mounting screws just enough to hold position and no more. Attach the glass to the regulator with the safety clips and make sure they are properly seated.
  2.  
  3. The 4 frontmost mounting bolts can be loosened to eliminate binding. Loosen the screws and operate the window up and down. As the regulator seeks its best position, tighten the bolts to hold it in place. It should take 5 seconds for the window to open fully.
  4.  
  5. Raise the window to its stopped position. Loosen the stop (at the forward edge of the regulator) and raise the window as far as it will go. Readjust the stop to mesh with the gears and tighten it in place.
  6.  
  7. Operate the window and ensure it moves smoothly without binding. If the window is binding while moving up or down, and assuming that the regulator and glass are installed correctly, you might need to lubricate the run channels. There are specific lubricants for windows, however a good lubricating fluid or silicone spray lubricant will do the job.
