    Has anyone ever removed the front door window. I'm trying to do a fix on my door handle module and it seems it would be so much easier to get at a troublesome bolt if the window were removed I see a rear clamp with nut but for the front part is it just friction fit? That doesn't seem right.
    Anyway if you've done it let me know.

    I haven't done this myself, but a little bird told me not to remove the rear clamp nut: just loosen it. Then lower the window. In the front there's an adhesive patch covering up a regulator clip, which should free the glass for removal. Hope that helps.

    I'm not sure your bird is in the know. When the window is down the front clamp is behind the speaker. I took the speaker out and the clamp is there. There's no bolt and it's not clear what really secures the window.

    If you want the right answer to a question, just post a wrong one on the internet. Someone will be sure to correct you.

    The front clamp doesn't have a release built in? Might need a pointy tool to activate it.

    I was really hoping that someone who knew what they were talking about would answer. Maybe latter.
