Removal
1 Remove the door inner trim panel.

2 Where necessary for improved access, peel back the waterproof plastic sheet from the door.

3 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 (see illustration).
