Default Putting Door Back Together

I am having big trouble putting my passenger side door back together. I can't get the window regulator to line up on the hole. It's so tight, that I can't even get it next to the panel. Also, I know I removed 3 screws, but the 3 holes on the regulator aren't threaded. I worked on the car for a long time and decided I will try again when I get off work.

Here are a few pics.

I just wanna throw this out there. No offense towards you, but people, please take the time to note and do whatever you have to to remember what screw comes from what hole. Take the time to watch how you are taking it apart because that's the exact way it's going to go back together.

As for your situation, are you sure you got the right regulator?

I didn't replace the regulator. I was sound deadening the doors. I haven't touched the driver's side yet.

Default Re: Putting Door Back Together

Is your window down, or up?....looks like it is down...depending on exactly how you took it apart, your window may be off of the track...that would definitely cause you some issues trying to put it back together.

When I did mine, I took some BLUE masking tape, and with the window fully up/closed, I took strips of masking tape and taped from the outside of the window, up and over the window frame, and back down onto the inside of the window. I used like 10-12 strips of tape. That way, when you disconnet your power window motor, the window stays up in place and won't drop down off of the track.

Default Re: Putting Door Back Together

The only reason I can think of is if the window is off of the tracks. If the window came off of the tracks then you are never going to be able to get the panel back on until you get the window lined back up. Someone is a post I had read somewhere recommended the tape method...they had said that if you don't tape the window up that it will come off of the track. That is what I would check...If the window is still on track, then it has to line up...

If this works for me, then I will duplicate on the passenger side.

That's exactly what I did...just make sure the tape doesn't pull free while you are working...the window will want to drop when you unbolt the motor. The tape will hold it, just keep an eye on it while you are working in the door.

I just removed the whole assembly. This made it much easier to work with. I can put the panel back on and then put it back into the door.
