Door window - removal and refitting
1 Remove the door inner trim panel.
2 Where necessary for access, peel back the waterproof plastic sheet from the door.
3 Remove the door mirror.
4 Remove the window channel extension screw from the bottom rear corner of the door, and withdraw the channel through the lower door aperture.
5 Lower the window until the lower support channel is visible through the lower door aperture. Prise the regulator arms from the sockets in the support channel, then lower the window to the bottom of the door.
6 Carefully prise the weatherstrip from the rear edge of the window aperture, then tilt the window forwards and lift it outwards through the aperture.
7 Refitting is a reversal of removal, but position the rear window channel extension screw to allow approximately 5.0 mm (0.2 in) fore and aft movement of the window. Check to ensure that the window does not tip as it is raised, and that the regulator effort is acceptable (check that the motor is not being overloaded on models with electric windows).
Adjust the channel extension screw if necessary.
8 Proceed as shown in paragraphs 1 and 2.
9 On Saloon and Hatchback models, prise the interior quarter trim panel from the rear of the door, then remove the now exposed screw and withdraw the exterior trim panel.
10 Remove the three window channel extension screws from the rear of the door, and withdraw the channel through the lower door aperture.
11 Lower the window until the lower support channel is visible through the lower door aperture. Prise the regulator arms from the sockets in the support channel, then lower the window to the bottom of the door.
12 Carefully prise the weatherstrip from the front edge of the window aperture, then tilt the window rearwards and lift it outwards through the aperture.
13 Refitting is as described in paragraph 7.
