Electric windows - how to dismantle door to check 2008 convertible


Registered User

Drivers side electric window made a horrible noise when lowered yesterday, then went up just and now refuses to move. Motor is working and can get a few mm of movement maximum.

How do I dismantle the doors on a convertible to inspect and hopefully fix the problem myself.

After a quick look the only screw I can see on the door card is right at the centre of the bottom of the card. Link to pictures would be a big help and some more info on the elecric window mechanism too please. Last thing I want to do is break plastic clips or be left with a rattling door afterwards...

Sounds like the regulator, top of the door needs removing to get to the mechanism fully.

Hi, can you point me at some pictures of the regulator and how to replace?

Any idea of costs involved?

This shows how to remove door card and frame.

Removing 4 more screws remove the regulator.
