Hi all,

 

Opened my passenger side window last week only for it to fall down into the door. I took the door apart and managed to tape it up in place, and found that one of the regulator clips completely snapped in half and the other is about to. After looking online, the clips i see in pictures on eBay are slightly different to the ones i have. It also looks like some are made of metal which i would far prefer to use if so.

 

I have an 02/03 MK4 Golf Match 1.6l 16v BCB, can anyone recommend a link? I can also provide pictures of the current clips i have if necessary.

 

Also, upon removing the interior of the door, the door lock pole thing (the bit that a passenger can press down to lock the door internally) completely detached from the lock mechanism - the door no longer locks when pressing the key now. Its parked up against a wall for the time being. I cannot unscrew the two bolts on the interior edge of the door that i believe hold the lock mechanism in place - and trying to unscrew one of them has slightly stripped/warped the screw head :(. Is there a certain technique or tool needed to remove these bolts?

The clips were plastic in earlier models, and changed to metal in later models. When mine went, I went up the scrappy and found a car with the metal ones to grab.

The ones you just posted look similar to the ones I got, if a bit cheap

I doubt the breakers round by me would be willing to spend an hour taking apart the door to sell me clips for £5

Ah, I went to one where you dismantle yourself. eBay metal ones might be a close second best.

Cool. Does a specific level need to be set with the winder or does it just keep winding until it meets resistance? I don't want to end up installing them and winding the wind up only to find that either the window is trying to push through the top of the door frame or that when fully wound up the window is still slighty open :s

Wind all the way up and hold for 5 seconds,then all the way down and hold for 5 seconds to reset one touch.They wouldn't be allowed to make a car with windows that could potentially kill someone if the battery had been disconnected.

Is this before or after everything has been put in place?
