    ok i have 2 doors..one was the one from my truck which has manual windows and is rusty as hell..i through a power window door on it from my blazer...and i want to switch the guts out from them..(make power door manual) but the wire harness is not in the power door and the window is up. is it possible to take the guts out with the power window up or would it have to be brought down? and if i have to put the harness back in...how can i wire the door up to make the window work? if i can do that ill just leave it as power

    I just swapped my power doors with manual ones takes about an hour. you can remove the power units with the windows up just need to take the vents out first and go for it. once you start to remove the bolts the glass should give enough for you to get it out

    well just got it finished..took me more like an hour and half...not bad biggest pain in the arse was getting the regulator arms to get in the channels for the window and getting it bolted to the door..the stuff came off in like a couple minuts though /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
