How to remove window regulator at junk yard?
I need to replace the window regulator on my wifey’s ’98 ‘vert. The motor is fine. Its the regulator that is bent all to hell due to it getting stuck and my wife trying to force it up. She did it so much that the door skin separated from the door…. Lovely…
Anyway, the local pick-n-pull junkyard has two mustangs with the window & regulator intact. They both have the factory rivets connecting the window to the regulator, so I’ll have to drill them out. I’ve removed the regulator already from my wifey’s car, but I was able to move the window up/down to get access to the rivets etc. I’m not so lucky at the junk yard. They don’t have any batteries and the wiring is all hacked up to hell in both cars. The difference between the two cars is one has the window in the full up position and the other has the window in the full down position. How do I get the regulator and window out without any power? I don’t want to be a douche and break the glass though.
What do you guys suggest (other then breaking the class)? Thanks...
