Nice car in a good colour too. The window issue I only dealt with on mine last week after suffering the two-handed closing/sagging palaver for years HERE
is the link to my posting which was received with huge excitement.
- remove inner door handle ( three screws) and afore-mentioned 'knob'
- gently prise the door card/lining away from its plastic clips which will probably break, lift it free.
- remove the three or four bolts that hold the window scissor mechanism in place inc the inner small runner fixed onto the door that you can't see from outside ( this will save loads of faffing). Manoeuvre it off the window runners. Probably advisable to remove the whole window through the top before putting the new 'improved' set of scissors into place.
- Slide all the bearings and runners into place on the window once it's back in before bolting back onto the door ( prop it up with a block of wood to aid alignment for the bolts)
I'm assuming that its an electric window otherwise you've got a big faff changing the manual mechanism onto an electric one
I'd say allow 90 mins or so if you've never done it. Any questions just ask as I've wasted too much time in the inner recesses of the BX door!
- I just saw your MOT post. Sounds like the front strut returns could be leaking if you've got two pipes that go no-where. These things degrade over time and just fall off. I've seen this on a couple of BXs
