Suddenly, last week, my driver's door window became stuck in the fully open position. Here's what happened:
The stop pad (noted in blue, a 2" x 2", 1/2" block of rubber with a plastic cover on top) got old...
the plastic cover fell off...
and the carriage plate dug into the rubber, farther and deeper than it was designed to go.
Now, the window glass lift arm is jammed and is preventing the motor from moving it.
Seems as if all I have to do is unbolt the motor and free it up. SEEMS like!
Trouble is, I can't get to the lower fixing nut (also noted in blue) on the motor mounting plate with the arm all the way down... it's in the way.
Can anyone give me any tips on releasing the motor?
(Suggestions that involve breaking the glass or drilling any fiberglass will be rejected out of hand...)
TIA.... (I just needed to rest after working on this for several hours, thanks for allowing me to vent.)
