Bodywork and fittings / Door window glass and regulator - removal and refitting


Front door window glass Removal
1 Remove the door inner trim panel as described in Section 13.

2 Lower the window glass two-thirds of the way.

3 Carefully peel the plastic sealing sheet from the door.

4 Pull the weatherstrip from the lower edge of the window aperture.

5 Partially pull the weatherstrip from the rear and upper edge of the window aperture.

6 Where applicable, disconnect the electric window motor wiring connector, and move the wiring harness to one side.

7 It is now necessary to release the clip securing the window glass to the regulator mechanism.

8 On models up to 1992, this is a difficult operation, as the lugs on the clip must be released from behind the glass. Peugeot tool (-)7.1309 is available for this purpose, but the tool can be improvised by drilling a hole of suitable diameter in a small block of wood or plastic. Push the tool onto the rear of the clip to compress the lugs, whilst at the same time pushing the window glass to release it from the clip (see illustration).

9 On models from 1993, the clip is fitted behind the glass, and can be released by reaching in through the door aperture and turning the clip through a quarter-turn.

10 Lift the glass out through the outside of the window aperture.

Refitting
11 Refitting is a reversal of removal, bearing in mind the following points.

a) On models up to 1992, ensure that the clip securing the glass to the regulator is securely engaged.

b) To ease refitting of the weatherstrips, coat them with soapy water (washing-up liquid is ideal).

c) If the plastic sealing sheet was damaged during removal, fit a new sheet.

d) Refit the door inner trim panel with reference to Section 13.
