manual window reg strip down.

The Drivers window was very stiff to roll up and down. When I stripped down the door and the took out the regulator I came to the conclusion it was inside the copper cup that is riveted to the mechanism. I drilled the rivets and took it off. Inside there is only 2 pieces. The splined gear that the crank handle bolts to, and a large spring. And it was this that was getting tripped in the copper cup as you turned the handle. So I put it on the only way I thought it would go as I have no reference, and put it all back together. Now it is free but a bit too free. The window can side down if you put your hands on it and pull down lightly, even going over bumps will cause it to come down. Anyone had this problem before?

I'm thinking that spring you removed maybe what helps retain the gear from just freely moving on the track..But it's just a guess I've never had my THAT tore apart.

Bombing for peace is like F*cking for virginity!

Sorry I didn't remove the spring completely. I tried to refit it. And by the looks of it after an hour of trying it would only go in 2 ways. The first being how it came out jamming the linkage up. The 2nd, the way I've put it in now.

If it was riveted on I doubt anyone had ever had it apart. So I would put it back in the way it came out. And maybe grease the gears and the parts that the arms slides in attached to the window.

Sorted it. Just to inform u all. Incase it happens to u. Inside the copper cup is a spinning gear and a spring. Well the spinning gear looked like it was one piece. But it's actually 2 just that mine were seized and the spring hooks around both parts so they work against each other. I rebuilt it and it sorted it.
