I could just have easily named this post "Regulator Nation", huh?! *lol*
So, here's our afternoon in pictures.
There are only two screws,
within easy reach, that hold
the plastic cover on the door.
the electric mirror, electric door locks and
the electric window winder.
Pull this off gently, perserving the
gooey stuff for reuse between the barrier
and the metal door.
Or should be ... ha ha
You're down to the metal
and everything is revealed.
devices removed, you have to make sure the
window stays in place. Tape works.
I recommend overdoing this part.
Don't want busted glass on
top of everything else!
Then it would get expensive.
and work in the back of the Jeep.
Next time I'll put a table with
a strong light next too the truck
to work on. This is hubby attaching
the new part. There's a lot of
little piddly stuff to go through
to do this but it's not hard,
just time consuming.
The replacement part is metal.
Do everything in reverse
to put it back together
and you're good to go.
Ta da! The window works fine! I'm tired but happy and still have that $700 in my pocket.
Now, only three more windows to go *sigh* ... I think we'll save that for another afternoon. :)
