[xj40] Window motor/gearbox removal

Dave et al.

I was wandering through the archives looking for advice regarding the
removal of my rear passenger door window motor, when I came across some
wonderful instructions from the ever knowledgable Mr. Lokensgard.

At one point in the instructions, you (Dave) say

"Manouver the regulator assembly so that it folds flat and at the same time
slide it off the bottom of the glass window. "

This is the step after you have removed the screws that hold the motor etc
to the door panel. I have the screws out.

I have reached this point in the dis-assembly and I am stuck. Excactly how
does one fold this assembly flat (can’t see it, so I am not sure what it
loks like or what I am doing in there) and which way do you slide it to
“slide it off the glass window”

Any help from Dave or others very much appreciated.

Also, I have applied 12 volts to the motor and get no movement whatsoever.
Has anyone taken the gearbox apart? Has anyone replaced bearings or
bushing or is it usually the case that a replacement is required. Any hints
what I should do exactly when I get the gearbox out?

THanks in advance

Darren,
Have you got ALL the fixings out?
There are two nuts which hold the motor in and then 4 others that hold the
mechanism in.
If the whole thing is now loose and moving, make sure you have taped the
glass to the door frame.
Slide the ‘runners’ that afix to the glass rearwards and off the glass. You
will need to put your hand up behind the plastic sheeting do this manually.
If you shine a torch up into the door frame toward the rear of the door you
will clearly see the two white plastic ‘wheels’ that run along the lower
section of the glass.
These are what need to be taken off.

I wonder what this means?? Can I be losing my mind? As far as I recall I
have never worked on the Jag windows and never posted about them. Probably
you’re right, I am losing my mind :-)!!

Sorry that I can’t offer any advice, but thanks for the nice words. Perhaps
another Dave can chime in? There are several competent Daves on the list,
Hurlston, Austin, Meck and many more I’m sure…

On the other hand, if you post the link and it was me, I’ll try to plumb
the memory banks further!

… and Dave Boarder is another one, and I’m sure I’ll remember more as the
evening goes on …
