Window winders

Postby V8-CHEVETTE » 01 May 2007, 21:04

How do i get the window winders off? :?

Am i being overly stupid?

I like simple ones with a nice visible screw in the middle.

The correct term for a winder is a regulator :)

Some Very Smart Person At Haynes wrote:Press the trim panel (door card around the regulator) inwards slightly and extract the clip which secures the window regulator handle. In absence of the correct tool, a hooked piece of wire can be used.


The tool is a rounded y shape and pushes a clip off a circular piece of material at the base of the regulator

Or if you have the Chevette Haynes Manual see page 130, sec. 12 point 3 and fig.12.6 on page 131

Hope this is of help mate :wink:

Thanks
Andrew

if all else fails , a very small flat screwdriver will suffice. just remember to try and keep a hold of one end of the clip as they do have a tendency to 'spring off' ....

In fact, two small flat screwdrivers may be better, as with a single one as you release one side of the clip, the other side tends to pop on again, or else turns on the shaft to the point where you want to remove it with a hammer.

You're both wrong, it's a "handle" :lol:

Get the tool, it saves a LOT or aggravation if you're not sure what you're doing.
When you lose the clip, you should be able to pick up a replacement for pennies at a trim shop - they're used on a lot of different vehicles.

Ta for the advice chaps i'll have do on Friday.

Probably end up using the usual tools, i.e. hammer and chisel or maybe my favorite, 9" angle grinder. :wink:

You can buy the tool for just a few quid at Machine Mart or any half decent trade tool supplier or factors
