I suppose so, Surely someone has to warranty this work. If you were not told it was old stock then the installer is to blame......pressure them for some kind of refund or fix to the problem. That is a lot of money, make noise to the better business bureau if they give you the runaround.

Id be ticked! Unfortunately that all i can do for you is be just as frustrated as you.. however, measure the doors, and then measure the frame that the door is supposed to go into. If those do not line up, then it is definitely not your fault well, this doesn't appear to be your fault anyways, did the installer measure the doors? Did the installer order the doors? Or did you just order the doors yourself? Sounds to me like they're just not fitting correctly. And I'm hoping that it's the installers fault.

Toyota Tazz window winder


Toyota Tazz driver side window refused to wind properly. Problem was that winder mechanism and window separated - old glue. Found some input from Ben on this forum. Some pointers after doing the job today.
Step 1 - remove the arm rest - two screws
Step 2 - remove the screw holding the door opener handle.
Step 3 - remove the C-clip holding the winder handle. The clip is round but the ends are slightly bent outward - to fit back easily. Use a large screwdriver to force a small opening (thus moving the panel slightly inward). I took a piece of thin solid wire and bent it into a loop. This looped wire I hooked around the one end of the clip and pulled in the opposite direction towards the inside of the car. The open end is towards the part of the handle you wind. Make sure the top of the handle faces towards the interior of the car (door is open wide). The clip shot off (as Ben warned) but landed in the car.
Step 4 - the door handle (square) must be slid forward and outward towards you. Will now be loose but is held by the rod going to the lock.
Step 5 - loosen all clips carefully by pulling the panel forward - large screwdriver works.
Step 6 - lift up the panel - and push the door handle holder through the hole in the panel. The panel will now be free.
Step 7 - the window can be removed in this case where window and mechanism seperated by simply pulling the window upwards and outwards.
Step 8 - I used a small grinder and removed most of the glue - but not all.
Step 9 - put the window back into the door making sure it is correctly aligned in the side-sliders.
Step 10 - I used an epoxy 2-part glue (Pratley) and placed some glue in the holders. Position the window and mechanism correctly (using glue I left as marker). Note that only 2 holes in door panel can be used to see or fit glue.
Step 11 - Mix more glue and apply front and back. Now place some grease in the mechanism rail (horizontal) and wind window to the top. Leave to dry.
Step 12 - replace all in reverse. Clip pushes on easily - I used a small long-nose pliers.

Cheers,
Chris Snyman

Is there any special tools or requirements for removing and installing a new exterior (drivers side) door handle. Please describe the process. Thank you.


nope, just wind the window down, remove screws around the arm rest, pull panel out from door releasing plastic retainers, slide panel up out of window seal, remove plastic door dust shield , wind window up and you will be able to access handle through the inside of door, remove latch rod clip from handle, remove two bolts that screw to handle and thats it. Of course replace in opposite procedure

The door handle (looks like an armrest came off. Do I have to buy a whole new door panel?


That is the best fix. Even though you paid a lot of money for the car BMW hasn't figured out how to make decent door panels. They're stuck on this cheap fiberboard, waferboard panels covered with leather and vinyl. Then they put an occasional heavy duty bolt through it to hold on the door handle and armrest. Pull on it hard enough against the wind one day and bingo, the waferboard breaks and there really isn't a decent repair. Gorilla glue, epoxy, etc. might hold you over.

Wait til you get a leak in the door plastic. Then the water turns the waferboard door panel to mush.

you could try replacing the shock absorbers, use a stiffer/firmer shock. ( check out "bilstein" shocks). inspect the sway bars, look at the rubber mounts, make sure they are still in good condition. Or maybe install a aftermarket sway bar. also see if you can adjust the ride height of the suspension. I can adjust the ride height on my 89 Mark VII. up or down.

2001 PONTIAC GRAND PRIX GT REAR DRIVER SIDE WINDOW REGULATOR


take off door panel. the panel is held on by plastic anchor pins. just put a screw driver between panel to pry up then pull out by hand. on the door handle pry slightly on plastic handle housing. there should be a torque screw or 2 behind the handle. "do not " force this part off. this is the integrity portion of the door. it should come right off after you losen the torque screws. unhook eletric harness and I do believe there are 3 mount bolts for the window regulator and 2 for the window. you can access the 2 bolts for the window by sliding the wind by hand up or down and access through one of the open bolt holes. i just did this about 3 weeks ago. its not a hard job at all. partstrain.com is where i bought my window regulator. i only paid about $60 which included shipping. on a scale of 1-10 i would give this a 3. not hard but a little frustration due to limited space.
