dutchfrompredator said:this will sound pathetic b/c it is. i haven't done it yet. the window still works so i'm prfoundly unmotivated until it fails. it just won't set. i did get the correct rivet size and have it written down. i'll find and post it for you. give me a little while to find it.
Tough love? :lol: The entire proceedure, with greasing the window runner should EASILY take under an hour. Door handle cupne screw, tweeter speaker: pops off, door pull" two screws. The actual panel is held in place with nylon ribbed push pins, I think they are blue. Lower the window and start at one lower corner and pull every 6 inches or so until the bottom and sides are free, lift straight up, disconnect lower speaker and set aside. If there are a few blue pins left in the door, just pry them out with a wire cutter or similar item. Gently remove the grey foam rain shield and you will then have full access to the guts. If you rip the foam, no sweat, just duct tape the rip when you put it back. Find the offending rivet, drive or dril it out, replace with rivet or screw and put everything back to gether.dutchfrompredator said:any pointers on taking off the door panel when i investigate since you just did it?
toadhall, as usual you have scared me straight so i'm doing it this weekend. :lol:
5-6mm thread x 10-15mm long will do it. Use spring washers with the nuts to prevent them undo-ing in a hurry.jacekk said:Thanks very much!
Good luck with your regulator.
Does anyone know what size bolt and nut to use instead of rivets?
