    Default Changing the front window glass, advice please

    Hi all,


    I have a vectra 05 with tinted windows, the passenger side doors were damaged, so having replaced the doors, I now need to change over the glass, aswell as converting the rear door from electric to winder(I know why! you may ask but the itnerior trim is for winders, the door I got is electric)

    According to the haynes manual, I need to remove the regulator on the front door to remove the glass, is this right or is there a better way?

    Thanks in advance

    BTW, does anyone in BS10 area have a rivet gun I can borrow for a day, cannot find mine anywere and I am loathed to buy another when I will eventually find mine. Free tea and bacon butty,

    Make sure you use steel rivets and a heavy duty rivet gun. Wind the window down and you'll see 2x 40 or 45 tx screws on the channel. remove them and tilt the glass forward and slide it forward off the rear guides.( it helps if someone moves the mechanism up at the same time for quickness. Refit the same in reverse but be careful not to catch the tint film on the door edge. I'd do it for you for free if you fancy the drive up north.lol

    Hiya,

    Can I just confirm, you have to remove the regulator to change over the glass? is that correct.

    Thanks
