    Angry Driver's window glass dropped

    There was a bang as I was winding the window up and now the glass has dropped. Something broke !! I have pulled the glass up but will have to open up the door to see what needs fixing. Motor still runs but not moving anything. Any ideas ? !! Help !!

    It is common you will need winding gear they brake of at the main rivet you can not repair them so best get one first second hand All so if you don't keep window runners lubed it will brake .

    Did it today - got a second hand window mechanism but changed over the motor as mine was newer. As predicted above the spot welds had snapped off so the main levers were disconnected from the main gear. Took about 4 hours as everything was tight - first time opened.
