How do you remove the door glass?

Disconnect both the track parts from the frame then wiggle 'er out. You may have to take the outside door trim off.

Hi Steve,

1. Remove the outside window aluminum trim.

2. Roll the window down to the bottom half of the door.

3. Remove the two M8 bolts and screw that hold the window bracket to the rail of the vent window frame.

4. Remove the two M8 bolts that hold the window bracket to the door rail/slider.

5. Slide the window (with its bracket) forward along the window regulator until the larger portion of the bracket slot is aligned with the plastic retainer of the regulator.

6. Separate the window bracket from the regulator retainer by pushing the bracket away from you (this is a small movement.)

At this point the window is freed from the regulator and can now be brought up out of the door.

The "track" you mentioned in your post is referred to as "bracket" in my post. The window glass is secured within the bracket with two cotter (or split) pins.

The window/bracket can be removed from the door as an assembly. Should the need arise to separate the window glass from the bracket, the split pins can be removed after the window has been raised out of the door.

I've never had to remove the glass from the bracket to get the assembly out of the door. What's essential is to separate the window bracket from the regulator.

    BMW Neue Klasse - a birth of a Sports Sedan

    Unveiling of the Neue Klasse Unveiled in 1961, BMW 1500 sedan was a revolutionary concept at the outset of the '60s. No tail fins or chrome fountains. Instead, what you got was understated and elegant, in a modern sense, exciting to drive as nearly any sports car, and yet still comfortable for four.   The elegant little sedan was an instant sensation. In the 1500, BMW not only found the long-term solution to its dire business straits but, more importantly, created an entirely new

    History of the BMW 2002 and the 02 Series

    In 1966, BMW was practically unknown in the US unless you were a touring motorcycle enthusiast or had seen an Isetta given away on a quiz show.  BMW’s sales in the US that year were just 1253 cars.  Then BMW 1600-2 came to America’s shores, tripling US sales to 4564 the following year, boosted by favorable articles in the Buff Books. Car and Driver called it “the best $2500 sedan anywhere.”  Road & Track’s road test was equally enthusiastic.  Then, BMW took a cue from American manufacturers,

    The BMW 2002 Production Run

    BMW 02 series are like the original Volkswagen Beetles in one way (besides both being German classic cars)—throughout their long production, they all essentially look alike—at least to the uninitiated:  small, boxy, rear-wheel drive, two-door sedan.  Aficionados know better.   Not only were there three other body styles—none, unfortunately, exported to the US—but there were some significant visual and mechanical changes over their eleven-year production run.   I’ve extracted t
