STAGE 93

 Return to the BUILD


“In this assembly session you will continue working on the right door window.

Since we have done all of this before with the Left Door, I will summarize a few of these steps.

Parts

Materials: The Window Crank is metal – everything else is plastic.

Build


The Right Door Window (II)

Stage 93.1

Fit the Crank Knob to the end of the Window Crank, as shown:

Secure the Crank Knob into place from the other side with one (1) GP screw:

Stage 93.2

Retrieve your Right Door Inner assembly from the previous stage. Fit the post of the Window Crank through this hole of the Right Door Inner:

On the back of the Right Door Inner, fit the Window Cog 1 over the D-shaped end of the Window Crank post, as shown:

Stage 93.3

Fit Window Cog 3 over this left post of the Right Door Inner assembly (making sure the notch in the arm of Window Cog 3 is facing up), then fit Window Cog 2 on the post between these gears making sure it engages with them both, as shown:

Then, secure Window Cog 2 to the Right Door Inner with one (1) BP screw.

The tighter you make these next few screws, the more resistance the window will have to rolling up and down:

Stage 93.4

Fit the Window Regulator Cover Plate over the gears as shown, and secure it into place with four (4) AP screws:

Install one (1) VM screw into the end of the Window Crank post.

This is your friendly reminder to try using 3-in-One Oil on all screws going into metal:

Stage 93.5

Apply a Window Weatherstrip sticker to the upper inside edge of the Right Door Inner, as shown.

The purpose of this sticker is to prevent scratching the window as it is rolled up and down. I applied it to the very top edge of the door, but not above it, so the sticker would not be visible from the outside of the door:

Retrieve your Right Door assembly from the previous stage. In the same way, apply the remaining Window Weatherstrip sticker to the upper inside edge of the Right Door, as shown:

Stage 93.6

Fit the slot of the Right Door Window Glass over the end post of Window Cog 3 and secure it to the post with one (1) BP screw.

This window glass only fits correctly one way. If it doesn’t fit right, flip the part over. Do not over-tighten this screw as the post needs to be able to slide along the slot in the window:

Stage 93.7

Fit the Right Door Inner to the Right Door, aligning all of the screw holes as shown.

You might want to fully lower the window (using the Window Crank) to make this step easier. When fitted correctly, the Right Door Inner should sit flush against the Right Door:

Next, secure the rear window guide parts together with one (1) TP screw:

Then, secure the Right Door Inner to the Right Door with six (6) AM screws.

There are three screws at the rear of the door:

And, there are three more screws at the front of the door:

Stage 93.8

You can now test the window lift mechanism by turning the Window Crank.

Make sure the window easily slides up in the channel and does not bind up along the way.

Thoughts


With this stage behind us, our Right Door is now finished! We will mount it to the Body in the next stage.
