driver window drop when door opens


Recommended Posts

Friends,

I posted this to the 986 Boxster forum, but realized I should also post to the 996 side of life.

My drivers window is now only dropping a fraction of an inch.  I think the bicycle brake adjuster fix will solve the problem.

I found the pics of this once, but can't seem to locate them again.

I'm reactivating this thread to ask if either of you, or others, might have the link or thread with the pictures of that great fix idea.

thanks in advance. jl

Found the answer in a post from Maurice (1schoir) dated Oct 10, 13, in a thread titled Window drop passenger side.

As Loren has always said, "the search engine is your friend."

Question:  Am I correct that to get the door panel off the battery must be disconnected to avoid an airbag issue?

Maurice, if your still willing, a DIY would be great.  My good inde would likely be able to help me with this.  

I'd like to avoid a visit to the closest Stealership which is about 160 miles away in Mill Valley, CA.

Cheers,

I replaced driver side window mechanism on my 2003 996 cab without disconnecting battery. Just disconnected airbag after removing door panel. Important to not have key in ignition when airbag is disconnected. It really is a diy. If I can do it anyone can.
