Door glass and door handle removeal

I am wanting to strip down two sporting doors, but with no power supply.

is it possible to remove the windows with the motors in the down position? The door aren't on a car so are not connected to the battery

also, with the windows being down, is it possible to remove the door handles?

ALSO are the windows on a sporting different colours/tints to a basic 8999?

Thanks guys

James

Yup, can be done, although it will need a bit of a wiggle to get the glass out.

Tints will be different to the basic one. They had no tint.

Cheers

hi tints are the same both will have a green tint .i think you may need to unbolt the regulator and the side guides etc the pull the whole lot out together or power up the motors only two bolts hold on the glass

Re: Door glass and door handle removeal

you need three hands, but as you pull the drop glass up, the bolts will appear in the upper part of the door.

Re: Door glass and door handle removeal

You can tilt the glass either way to get to the bolts, pull it up while looking through the upper door aperture, I am sure it will become obvious. I think that once you've undone one, the glass will swing allowing the other to be accessed.

Thinking about it, are you sure they are bolted, not just sliders?

Cheers

i've undone the bolts/screws at the red dots and removed the wiring. The motor prevents movement of the glass to get the bolts

Re: Door glass and door handle removeal

Looking at the door it's not obvious how the motor can be removed. It would come out with the regulator if that were seperated from the glass. It's not covered in the manual
