Rear side glass opener

Post by ian_s » Sun Jun 21, 2020 6:52 pm

Can anyone tell me how to remove the rear openers from the glass? The opposite side to the image has very badly corroded and I would like to swap it out but i cannot see how to remove it from the glass.

It unscrews Ian. You need to prise the cap off the outside as I recall and there is a screw underneath

Ah that's what I thought. My concern is that the other side looks like that cap has collapsed into what looks like an Allen key fitting which equally looks heavily corroded. I might have my work cut out trying not to break the glass
