Unscrew the push/pull lock knob, remove the 3 screws from the underside of the internal pull handle, remove window winding handle, unclip the plastic surround around the opening handle, carefully unclip the door liner starting at the bottom then slide it up an inch or so and it should come off.

Thanks for your reply. I have removed all the seals and the window channel, so the glass is very loose, but I can't get it out. does the glass have to be angled? does it come out inside or out?
Many thanks

You have to remove the outside weather strip at the top of the door, the runners from the bottom of the glass, the weather seal - thats the U shaped long seal from all three sides then the window comes out upwards tilting it outwards initially. Its not too difficult until you start to put it back in.

Get yourself a Haynes manual as it describes a lot of the BX jobs we all have to do from time to time.

Thanks all, I had stripped all the rubbers including the long one, but the glass was still too wide to come out. What did the trick was to remove the upright black plastic trim along the quarterlight. This pulls off and allows the glass to slip out on the inside of the door. When putting it back I found it easiest to unbolt the winder mechanism, which makes it easy to re-engage the runners. My Haynes manual was not so helpfull.
