Our carrier DHL is operating normally across the world (including in Italy), with the exception of Hubei province in China. Allow an extra day for delivery, just in case.
  * We will be working normally and have a large warehouse full of parts that will help keep your car on the road even if many of the parts manufacturers are now closing.
Workshop Customers:
  *
Following government guidance, we are open as usual. Taking your vehicle to a garage for repairs is a permitted activity (safety) as long as you observe the social distancing rules. We have no signs of illness in the company and are taking all precautions to minimise contact and disinfect daily (not least because we have staff in vulnerable groups). Our mechanics wear gloves at all times and we will disinfect your vehicle with our Zaflora sprays on handing back to you. We would respectfully ask you to show our staff the same courtesy.
  * To help those in self isolation, we are now offering a free Collect & Return Service of up to 30 miles, so if you have any servicing due in the next 3 months now might be good time to get it out of the way without even having to open your front door. We will disinfect your car on collection and return.
  * MOTs due for renewal from 30 March will be extended for half a year. However, you are still obliged to keep your vehicle in a safe and roadworthy condition, so if you need to use your car in this period, it is still recommended to get one done.

Using a plastic 'trim removal tool' prise off the cover to the interior pull to handle.

There's also a cover to remove by the door release handle.

...to both handles.

Unscrew the x2 Phillips screws at the side of the door card.

Pop out the puddle light...

...and disconnect it.

Prise off the wing mirror mounting cover.

Pull the door card off of it's push clip fixings (there's still the door release cable and window switch wire connected).

Unhook the door release cable.

Disconnect the window switch and take away the door card.

Carefully cut away the doors membrane along the seal across the top and down both sides.

Unfortunately someone else had got there before us on this model and cut the centre out.

Disconnect the plug to the window regulators motor.

On LATER window regulators there's x2 T30 bolts holding the window in place on the sliders.

On EARLY window regulators you have x2 disc screws instead but they're located ON THE BACK of the sliders. Remove the door window glass.

Unbolt the x3 10mm nuts to the motor...

....and the x4 to the slider rails at either side (x2 top and x2 bottom).

Remove the window regulator through the centre hole of the door.

This is the position the regulator sits inside the door.

On the new window regulator do up the nuts on the motor first, the left side slider rail second and then the right side rail. Drop the glass in and screw up the x2 T30 locating bolts.

Plug the connector back into the motor and shut the door. Check the windows gap is about the same as the gap on the left door and of even width.

Adjust the window by loosening the T30 bolts and moving the glass until you find the right position.

Put the membrane back in place using tape to help hold it.
If the membrane is missing replace it with something suitable and use sealant to seal and tape to hold in place.
