Question about 1985 Porsche 911

1 Answer

Porsche 911 1985 3.2

Hi! The window;s popped out of the sliding groove that the window sits in. Need to get to it via the door trim but can't figure out how to separate the trim from the door knob! I've taken the central screw out but it hasn't released the trim nor has the door opening mechanism separated from anything.... Not easy to explain - but I basically need to get access to the window mechanism so that I can re-sit the window in the groove (electric window) Cheers Chris chrisdotreynoldsatlineonedotnet

The Int door trim cover held on with plastic body pins .They have barbs on them so they slide in easy but need to be pryed out once you get the first 1 then you can pop them out with your hands then allin and reuse them .
You will have to remove some things from the inside of the door window cranks mabey the arm rest it really depends on what model you have look for little plastic trim covers that pop out underneith things not much holds it on

How to replace window 2001 renault laguna

driver side window. first you need to take off door card. 2 torx screws at base or dooe and one behind the door handle under a little tab. then pull the door card towards you from the bottom, this takes some time to ease off due to being glued. unclip the door wire from the door pull. twist the bulb hold at base of door and pull bulb holder out of door. next pull the door window switched out and unplug the 3 plugs and feed out of door card. next pull the mirror control towards you and up and unplug it wire loom and feed out of door card.

now with your door card out of the way. you can see that you have 2 runners that will move up and down each will have a plastic lug sticking out which your window with its plastic guards will sit on.

slide your new window in through the window opening having removed both internal and external trim pieces. until the window is sitting in the rear of door groove and next to the lugs.

wiggle the window until both the window holes and plastic covers are sitting around the lugs, then slide the locking clips over the end of the lug.

replace trim pieces inside and out then reverse the fitting of door card as above

How to take off the door panel on a 2001 Ford Escape


To take off your door panel, follow the steps below:
  • Raise the window of the door panel you wish to remove. Disconnect the negative battery cable and engage the parking brake for safety.
  • Remove the sail panel trim from the upper portion of the door panel. The sail panel panel is attached by clips; pop the panel off and disconnect the power window switch (if equipped).
  • Pull the interior door handle towards you to access the door handle trim screw. Remove the screw and slide the door handle panel off the door panel.
  • Pry up the window switch control panel and disconnect the electrical modules. Set the panel aside. Remove the three panel-mounting screws on the lower portion of the door panel.
  • Use the trim panel tool to help you pop the door panel clips from the door. Work your way around the entire door, until all of the clips are removed. Carefully remove the panel from the door.
Take care and good luck

1996 Ford Bronco door lock actuator

These directions might sound a little goofy. I'm trying to orient your location with front and rear rather then left and right because it depends on which door you are working on. Front is towards front of rig and rear, oh I think you get it.
1. Close window on door. 2. Using a flat screw driver pop off trim under inside door handle. I think there is a groove in the plastic to which the screw driver can be inserted. Remove screw. 3. Using same screw driver pop off trim panel with door lock and window control switches. Start lifting from end located at panel closest to the front of the rig. The panel towards the back end has a pivot point which holds the back of the panel into the arm rest. Dis-connect the two switches from the trim panel. 4. Again, using flat screw driver, pop off the trim pannel located at the upper door/window frame nearest the back of the rig. Remove screw. 5. Lift up the door panel to remove. Be careful the light bulb is attached to the door panel. Rotate light socket 90 degrees and remove. 6. From the rear of the door pull back the platic stick-on barrier. Don't remove the whole thing just pull it leaving about half of it towards the front of the door stuck on. 7. Remove the one 11mm bolt, located towards the bottom of door, which holds the rearwindow guide. Don't remove the two 11mm bolts which hold the horizontal brace. Nothing else needs to be removed, leave all rods and attachments in place. They all attach the the door latch and are not of any further concern.
8. Now the easy part. The actuators and door latches are separate components. The actuator slides onto the door latch via two metal guides located on the door latch. The actuator is held into place with a plastic locking tab. The locking tab is part of the actuator housing. 9. This tab has to be pushed in to release actuator from latch. 10. Find on ouside of door - rear where the latch fingers? (I don't know what else to call them) are located in the notched door frame. At the bottom of the notch is a very narrow opening, just a ****. This **** allows access to the locking tab on the actuator. 11. Orient the screw driver in the end of the **** closest to the interior. Working on a right door, looking at the locking fingers, facing the front of the rig, your screw driver would be inserted at the left side of the ****. Pushing a flat screw driver into the **** will push the locking tab allowing the actuator to slide off the door latch. 12. A flat screw driver or other small pry tool can be inserted between the actuator and the door lock to help slide the actuator off the metal guides. The pry unit can be inserted where the rod from the interior manual door lock stem is attached. Mine had a yellow snap/flip keeper. 13. The actuator slides off from the interior towards the outside door panel. 14. Simple put pressure onto the locking tab with one screw driver and gently pry with the other one and the actuator should slide right off.
15. I picked up an actuator at a u-pull it wrecking yard for five bucks and it worked fine. Dealer wanted $90.00 and auto parts wanted $127.00. When I pulled my actuator from the wrecked rig all door panels and interior where stripped. It took me literally 20 seconds to pull the actuator. 16. To install new unit slide actuator onto door latch rails and let locking tab click into place. You might have to manually move the interior door lock stem up and down until the finger on the actuator lines up with a hole on the plastic part of the interior lock stem.
16. I Want to thank TommyRox in Texas on Ford Truck World and rivguy on for their posts.
