Anyone point me in the right direction for getting the windows and all the trim out of the doors? I am sure there is a right way and a wrong way and since I am probably heading down the wrong way....thought I would ask....I did a search but came up empty....HELP!

thanks

ok...got the window out...does the window mechanism need to come out? if so, how the heck do you get it out of there? the window crank shaft is in the way of getting the entire mechanism out....there must be a way, what did people do to rebuild those things?

Also, what about the door posts? I took out three screws, but you would think that sucker would come out...but no....so where are all the screws at the need to come out to make bugger come out of here?

ok....figured out the door posts...bubba had fiberglassed over the end bolt and it was not visible.

so I still need to know...does the window mechanism come out with a major hernia? or just leave it in????

ok...got the driver door gutted...but the passenger window is being a pain...got the 4 screws out that hold it to the mechanism...but it wont come out....maybe I am too tired to fuss any more with it today...but any hints would be appreciated.....and whoever design this monster...well...never mind...but if you have worked on one of these you know what I mean......let me know tricks for getting this sob out!

thanks, Herb

normally I take a lot of photos, but now we are talking about photos in the door????? I am not sure how to do that....I will try to get a few...as there are a lot of little linkages and such that have to be connected in order to make the darn thing function.....

I was hoping the Assembly manual showed how to reassemble doors. If not, I'm in big trouble.

Larry you crack me up. :L

Maybe I should start saving some of your quotes like you have saved others in the past.

Herb,

I had my door hardware apart and don't remember having a whole lot of trouble. I do remember studying the AIM for quite a while before I tackled it though. Good luck. Sounds like you are making good progress at this point.
