The guy at the paint shop has requested that I remove the windows and the wing windows. Anyone have a brief tutorial on the easiest way to do this? I have an extra door, and am considering a dissection, but would appreciate the 2 cents worth......thanks......Mitch :yes:

Inner door skins off, remove the bolt which holds the wing window frame, then at the front of the door there is 2 holes, using a 1/4 drive rachet set remove the 2 bolts - be careful not to let them drop, then lift the wing window frame out of the door, then wind down the glass and remove the 2 clips on the mechanisim at the glass, lift out the glass - you may have to remove the wind seal rubbers at the top of the door to get it to clear.

OK, dumb question here–what's the best way of popping the chrome button off/out without destroying it?

Two micro-flathead screwdrivers is what I use to manipulate it off, use some papertowels to avoid marring the paint. I dont have anything that one could actually mar the paint on just yet, but I thought I would throw that in because I realize not everyone drives beater Scouts like I do. :D

I just jab a screwdriver in there - mines beat to hell anyways.

Be careful when you pull the circular clips off of the window itself. I broke 3 of them, one coming off, two going on. (I have a knack for it I guess)

And About the window felt - be gentle pulling the glass up if you decide to leave it in. I destroyed the only good strip I had because I forgot it was there.

Get a mirror and look at those circular clips. If you lift the locking tab on top, the clip just slides enough to lift it off the post.

Thank you gentlemen, much appreciated. Is it my imagination, or is there a degree of civility on Binder Planet that was lacking somewhat on the Bulletin?

If you still need any help, IHOnlyNorth has a thread under their tech forums/ parts install where they are installing power windows. It gives you a step by step and pics on how to remove the windows and I think they have a video link showing them doing it.

If this is for an 800,
Pull the screws off the top inside trim and remove trim strip.
Next,remove small door from the inside of the door.(you may have to remove the door's carpet or vinal trim first)
At the front of the door are 3 1/2 bolts these must be removed. Pull out the wing window from the track.
Remove window crank but first insure window is all the way up.You might have done this to remove your vinal/carpet trim panel already.
Remove the screws holding the window crank to the door.
Next, remove the moon style clips from the inside of the door that hold the regulator in place. There are 3.
Pull regulator out.
This is a real pain to figure out on your own. I recommend going to a junkyard and practice on a door for free. Its worth it not to jack up your own. I step away from the project if I feel rushed or if I get mad at the door.
Only bad things happen when a sledge is used to remove a window...

I revived this thread because of a search I was doing for window felt removal and install

I hope I don't sound like a total @sshole like this all the time
If I do, I apologize
Maybe I shoudn't post when I'm drunk or mad at someone or whatever

My question is

How do you go about removing and replacing the window felts?

My question is

How do you go about removing and replacing the window felts?

Are you removing them and reinstalling the same ones or installing new ones when the paint is done?

If you are saving them you need to remove the windows reach up inside with a pair of needle nose pliers squeeze the clips while pulling the felt. If you are replacing them with new then after the windows are out just pry the old ones out with a putty knife or screw driver.

If you are replacing them with new after paint, do you need to remove the windows
Or do you need to remove the windows to reinstall the new felt
And, one last question
I can see the clips, can you use a putty knife and push them in from the outside
I was trying to pull the old piece out with needle nose to no avail

This would be a great write up for the Knowledge base.

Anyone want to take a crack at this?

You could probably sneak the old ones out with the window in since they are likely really worn. But I don't see how you could get the new ones in w/o damaging them.

Currently in the process of installing the curved Terra windows on a '74 Scout. I reviewed this thread and the IHON install guide for power windows, both of which are quite helpful, but I still had a question. Do you have to remove any parts/bolts/etc of the wing window in order to just remove/replace the regular windows? I removed the two regulator clips, got the window about 2/3's out, but it seems to be catching something, so I assume there's something else I need to do. Maybe remove the bolt under the chrome plug?

Thanks a bunch.

I just looked a little harder and it looks like the track that the main window is in that is part of the wing window frame has a stopper (probably wrong term) at the top to prevent the window from being rolled up too far. I'm assuming this is what is preventing me from pulling the main window out all the way, correct? The chrome plug has been painted over. If I do need to remove this, any hints on the best way to do this without screwing the paint up too much? I was going try a micro screw driver, but wanted to see if anyone else had any ideas.

Thanks again.
