Re: Drivers door window replacement
Door glass bursting usually occurs due to heavy impact while closing the door or if the car is left in over heated environment. Some time it may occurs due to high beat of music system also.
Replacement of the window by self is not more complicated. You need to remove the door trim panel and other electrical connection from the doors.
Then clean the busted debries from the door thru' a vacuum cleaner. Purchase the right spare glass from the market. Remove the glass rail fittings from the position & fix the glass in the guide rails, then refix all the rails in position.
Put back the electrical connections & door trim in it place.
