Yes they're easy to fit but there is a point to watch to avoid instant failure of the cable.

proceed as follows (5 door).......

remove the screw from behind the interior door handle and remove the trim
carefully prise the door pull trim off and remove the screws from behind
05 models onwards, remove the window switch assembly by pulling the whole black trim upwards
remove the plug behind the springy cup holder thing and remove the screw inside
finally remove 4 screws from the lower part of the door trim
carefully prise the door trim from the door and try to avoid breaking any clips

To get the reg out.......

Carefully remove the water shedder, this is easier said than done and really it should be relaced, if you have a new one, just rip it off.

Now, the point to watch, before removal, look at how the cables cross over and the cable nearest the outer side of the door crosses over the inner one and is clipped to the inner door skin, it MUST be refitted this way to keep the cables away from the window otherwise the window will catch the cables when wound down and break them, this is a common mistake so take your time and look before removing.

Next, Wind the window down (if you can) and loosen the 2 bolts that hold the window to the regulator, pull the window up and tape it to stop it dropping. If you cant wind the window down, cut the cables.

Remove all the 10mm bolts that hold the reg in and wiggle the reg out of the door.

Twist the new reg so the cables cross as previously mentioned, make sure they cross the right way, the cable with the pad should be nearest the inner door skin with the one without the pad crossing it on the outside.
Fit the reg in the door and tighten all the bolts, clip the non padded cable to the clip on the inner door skin.
refit the window.
Now, check the operation and make double sure the window doesn't catch on the cables, once your happy, fit the shedder and the door trim.

Problem with the 2004 Land Rover FreeLander How to install a Freelander Window Regulator with cable loose not broken just off winder


Tools you will need:
1. Panel removal tool
2. Philips screw driver
3. 1/4 Ratchet with extension and 8 mm socket.
4. grease to lube new regulator. The first thing, is to remove the door panel:
1. Remove 2 screws securing hand rail to door.
2. Remove screw securing door handle escutcheon to door and remove the escutcheon.
3. Remove 4 screws securing pocket to door.
4. Carefully release 10 clips securing trim casing to door. (Best to use a door panel removal tool, the plastic clips break very easy)
5. Disconnect multi-plug from upper door speaker. Do the same for lower speaker
6. Remove trim panel from door.
7. Remove the plastic vapor barrier , care full not to destroy. (You may have to cut around some things such as the hand rail brackets.)
At this point you will be able to see the regulator and motor through the small holes in the door. At this stage a small flash light is very handy
to see such things as the power connector for the window motor.

1. Loosen the two bolts in the slotted holes, shown above.
2. Remove the remaining 4 bolts securing regulator assembly to door.
3. Lower glass and loosen the 2 bolts securing door glass to regulator. Then slide the channel bar forward to remove.
4. Disconnect the power from the window motor.
5. lift the window and secure in the up position ( I used Duct tape).
6. Collapse all the arms and maneuver the old regulator out the center hole in door. Assembly is basically the reverse of the removal procedures:
1. take the two screws that you partially removed out of the old regulator and install them partially install them into the new regulator.
2. Work the new regulator through the center hole.
3. Connect the power to the regulator motor.
4. Lower the window glass, take the channel that secures the glass to the regulator, insert it over the tow bolts that were loosened in step 2 above
5. Raise the window and secure.
6. Insert the 2 bolts on regulator through the keyed holes in the door and finger tighten.
7. line up the rest of the bolt holes and install the remaining two bolts in both the regulator and then tighten two bolts in step 6 above
8. install the two in the bottom channel.
9. Now is a good time to test..........
Then all that is left to install the hook up the speaker(s) and mount the door panel.
1. Position trim panel close to the door and connect door speaker(s) multi-plug(s).
2. Secure door panel to door with clips.
3. insert escutcheon to door handle and secure with screw.
4. Secure hand rail to door with two screws.noranda21_0.jpg
5. Fit pocket to door and secure with four screws."

Removeing door panel to remove side mirror


It's usually the window winder that presents the problem . Remove all visable retaining screws ie; Grab handle , Internal door opening lever , Button on top of panel (if applicable ) etc . The majority panel are a pop snap on type . Remove the winder lever withthe aid of a shoe lace or thin piece of cloth material, The winder is retained by a horse-shoe shaped spring clip. .... Pull the shoe-lace/ material in the opposite direction of the winder retainer clip and it will easily come off, but it is a spring clip and may fly off so be careful. Good luck

Remove window winders for mk3 Golf


hi there, it will be one of two ways, either theres a little horse shoe shaped clip that sits inbetween the winder and the door panel, failing that then the middle of the winder should flick out and there will be a screw that screws through the winder and into the panel, hope this helps
