Window Regulater - Window jaws


Recommended Posts

I am repalcing my window regulater in my 1999 - 996 Cab. Per one of your write ups I should not connect the battery to put the window jaws up to the top as the Air Bag warning light will come on when I connect everything back up again. The question is how do I get the jaws to the top of the rails with out hooking up the battery. I have the Air Bag unhooked and sitting on a shelf.

Thanks for any help.

Chuck:

You are correct in your appraisal of what will happen if you connect the battery before everything is buttoned up.

One way to get the jaws to the top of the rails is to do so while you have the motor still disconnected and separated (i.e., not yet installed in the new window regulator assembly). You can rotate the regulator manually without the electric motor installed.

One shortcut to avoid having to measure the distances from the front edge etc., is to NOT wipe clean the bottom edge of the window and use the "dirt marks" to locate the glass onto the two window clamping jaws.

One other note. If you haven't yet removed your old regulator assembly, be sure to mark the location of the base of each of the two window regulator legs on the inside surface of the bottom (horizontal) face of the door. You can then use those marks when you install the new regulator legs (10mm bolts) without having to be concerned with the inboard/outboard angle of the window glass.

Also, to avoid having to immediately have to open up the door panel again, make sure you follow the caution about where the "block" insert is located at the base of the forward leg of the regulator. There are two possibilities with respect to how your regulator came pre-set, one for Boxster height, and the other for 996 height.

Regards, Maurice.
