rear door window broken and door wont open

Hi all,
The rear passagenger door on my stilo estate has broken this afternoon (ithink it was the neigbour cutting grass but he denies). I have found a new glass at a breakers which is good, but when I have started clearing out the old glass the door will not unlock. I guess there is glass stopping it somewhere.

So I am after 2 bits of advice. How to get the door open, what about undoing the hinge bolts which I can get to witht he front door open?

does any one have any tips for replacing the glass.

non electric windows

Re: rear door window broken and door wont open

not to bad a job in the end. Got a glass from DA Motors wickford.

to get the door unlock, I went on a bumby road and then a few hits with the bottom of my fist must have been enough to remove the glass which was stopping it from opening.

Then simple job of disasmbling and back together 1 1/2 hours in the end in 30c heat, so quite pleased really.
