Ford Escort Xr3I Help!!! Lol

6 posts in this topic

Hi

Hope everyone’s well, just a quick question.

I had my car broken into last week by some friendly helpful members of society ( the F###ers lol ) and so have just managed to get hold of a new / second-hand window and was wondering if anyone had any useful tips on replacing it.

My cars an XR3 mark 4 Convertible with electric windows and it’s the passenger door main window that got smashed. The new window has the brackets on it. Do I need to take the rubber seal out the top of the door or undo any bolts in the door to get it on its runners?

If anyone has any tips I would be more then grateful for your advice.

Thanks
