Regulator Removal Instructions


With the interior removed from the '69 2+2 convertible, I want to replace the power window motors and clean and grease the window regulators. I have diagrams of the internals of the doors and the rear quarter, however, there is no replacement for experience. I am looking for a first hand account from someone that has done the removal procedure and any tips or tricks and of coarse an assessment of what I might be in for!confuse Step by step instructions from someone would be great!biggrin I have only removed a couple regulators from a '81 Cutlass...but they didn't have to go back in the car! Any kind of advice would and is ALWAYS appreciated! Thanks.

When I converted my windows on the 64 to power, I'm sure I had to take the vent window frame out of the door to get the door glass out??? 69 have a vent window???

I just spent the day in the garage. One of the things I did was drill out the holes and knock out the factory metal plugs for the power window boots that go from the door to the body. Just headed back to the garage shortly to begin installing the power tinted glass and power vents. Since this is an upgrade, I'll be a bit slower than you guys who are doing the remove and replace!

The one nice thing is as long as you do one side at a time, you can always look at the other side for reference.

Likely the toughest part of this job ( at least for me ) is getting the glass adjusted correctly when the job is done. It's a combination of getting it to go up and down smoothly as well as fit the weatherstrip properly.
