Default window regulator removal

I'm trying to strip down the front door of my 850 to get it ready for re-spraying and have got pretty much everything off except the window regulator. It just won't come out of the hole in the inner door panel! And I'm not sure if I should be somehow disconnecting the lock on the end of the door too! Has anyone done this and can help with some suggestions? Or maybe direct me to a tutorial somewhere please? Cheers, Pete.

I worked it out! You need to remove the motor which releases the regulator to move freely - easily removed with three bolts; undo and remove the three bolts that secure the plastic tray for the inside (sprung) door handle and then take off the lower bolt that attaches the bottom of the handle to the regulator and move that mechanism to one side. The regulator then comes out really easily. If you also want to remove the latch, like I did, then you have to remove the piece of window channel inside the door but again this is easy as it is held on with one screw and slips down and out from inside the door.

Well done. Thanks for letting us know.

And if I may, a second "well done" for taking the time and trouble to do a full strip down before spraying - many don't bother, and end up with overspray everywhere, and a job that's not as good as it could be for the expenditure of a little effort and care.

Cheers!
