door referb /stiff window question 75 2002


Recommended Posts

I am going to take my doors apart, and i kinda want to do it only once.   So here is what I have so far to referb the door.

 

Gromits (the three little ones for the lock mech rods) 

Door stop (mine are broken)

outdoor window seal

quarter window seal

power door locks

door card clips ( green ones)

Flexible conduit to run the speaker wire and door lock through

Door handle seals

I intend to put some dynamat in the inside skin, and repair the plastic barrier  

 

 

When i try to roll up the window it is really stiff, is this because of the regulator being worn by the crank (I would need the MB rivet fix)  or is the spring done, or window channel or all three?

 

Thanks in advance

Don't know if this is pertinent or not, but I recently installed new OEM weathership along the vent and had a terrible time getting the window to fully roll up.  There was a noticeable difference after installing an aftermarket seal (AGC 75 0636).

It can be all three.  The main thing is alignment to make sure that the glass is passing up and down square to the frame.  This is effectively achieved by pinching the glass between the front runners that rolls up the vent frame and the rear which has a friction fit. Too tight and it's... too tight. Too loose and it rotates too much and it's... too tight.  

 

When you have all the parts out of the door, clean them all up and add new grease. As you say, look for wear in the regulator linkage as that just means lost motion when winding and things being at funny angles which can also make them stiff.

Sorry, I wasn't clear enough. I meant that the technique to getting the window right is the balance between having the front and rear runners too close or far enough apart. the front runner uses a little wheeled 'trolley' with a couple of friction pads. This hooks around the extension to the vent window frame. The rear frame is a top hat sectioned bar with a friction runner that wraps around one side of it. Both frames, to one degree or another, can move in 2 dimensions when looked at from above. The best adjustment is where you can get the two lined up parallel in both axis and not so close or far apart that the mechanism binds or the glass rotates and sticks. 

 

Probably make more sense when you are looking at it than my poor description.

    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
