Window glass fell into the door - help

Postby rafcapri » Fri Dec 08, 2017 12:25 am

When it rain, it pours! So the kids were playing with the regulator and don't know how they managed to dislodge the glass from the panel that brings it up and down and now it's in there and won't move. Any idea how to best pull it back up? Like tools I can get? Is taking out the door card the only way? Trying hard to avoid removing stuff that I may not be able to put back knowing how clumsy I am.

When you're re-fitting the glass into the slider mechanism again, make sure you grease up the plastic roller and the runner part at the bottom of the glass to try and avoid it happening again!

Hey mate, thanks for the tip...didn't know you need do that. But will find time this holiday period to get it looked at properly.
