Xantia X2 front door glass removal

Post by Rhothgar »

Having searched the forum there is the odd reference to the window glass being removed from the outside on an X2.

I only have an X1 manual and clearly that doesn’t work.

Also, when trying to lower the door glass to the 2/3rds position it fouls the central door locking module.

Is it just a case of somehow stripping all the outside seals off to remove the glass?

I don’t wish to break any more glass on the car...

Not today!

Well. I’ve managed to get it out. Just not sure how it’s going back in.

This dropped out from somewhere!

And I don’t think this cable is recoverable...

Kenny W. Do you have one that looks like this?

Plus the green clip looks broken so I have no reference as to where the cable should sit in the clip.

Time to abort this job I think and get on with something productive on the car.

All back together. Not too much of a faff. I imagined it would be much worse hence posting.

Sorry Roger been elsewhere today, seen your posts.

I did have both mk 1 and mk2 window regulators but went with car to friend that was 5 years ago.

But I kept the window clips for some reason.

IIRC the wire was not unwound when I replaced same. to remove the glass I lower the glass and till I could access clip and slowly lifted it out of door frame.

It's alright Kenny. I was getting you confused with admiral51. So you have the clip. I must remember.
