    Never done a Lancer, but on Daytonas, Shadows, and Chargers you simply remove the door panel and crank the window up/down as needed to remove the nuts that bolt it to the mechanism, and carefully lift it out. If you have electric windows, you can plug the switch back in to move the window.

    Sorry. Nuts, not bolts. What you'll be looking for is studs that go through the glass along the bottom edge. They're usually in large plastic circles in the glass.

    Re: removing driver side window.

    Are the bolts on the back side of the glass facing the outside door skin?

    you shouldn't have to drill anything, i usually roll the window partway down the pull on the window toward the front of the car wile pushing the front portion of the glass downward, this will pull the window out of the tracks, then you turn the window at a 90 degree angle and lift it out of the door

    Re: removing driver side window.

    ^^^yup. Sounds scary at first but that is the only way your going to get those plastic guides unsnapped from the guide channel they ride in.

    Re: removing driver side window.

    I think its riveted from what I remember. Its been a long time. The bottom should have rivets that need to be drilled out and it might have guide clips in the side run channel that snap out. I know the shadows and spirits have those. And in the picture, Yes its a rivet and needs to be drilled. You can reinstall with rivets or you can sub a nut and bolt.

    Re: removing driver side window.

    Ok so to get the window out I can pop it out but to get the bottom off I need to drill it out correct?

    Re: removing driver side window.

    To get the bottom off the lift channel you need to drill the rivets out. If you do not have a rivet bit then take a small punch and knock the center rivet stud out then drill out the rivet with a drill bit. If you choose not to re rivet the glass, You still need to use the plastic washers so you don't break the glass when tightening it down. Remember, Snug not tight or BOOM! If it has guide clips in the side channels, Lower the regulator to the bottom after removing rivets allowing the glass to be slid by hand. Grab the glass and give it a quick tugnoe down and forward and the clips will release.

    Re: removing driver side window.

    With the glass free from the side channel and just sitting on that plastic lift point slide/guide thing can you roll the window fore-aft at all? just speaking out of similar experiences from being familiar with a P body it takes a bit of finess to find the right spot but you can roll the front or rear window glass on a P body after the plastic guides are unsnapped and lift it right out of the door. no drilling or anything.

    Re: removing driver side window.

    Yep, It has clips:
    http://www.cpidivisions.com/product/86-6056/

    You can just snap them off the glass to put new ones on. The new ones have a mini brass crimp rivet. You can use a channel lock to press it together if you don't have the rivet tool. Just remember do not squeeze too hard or hit the glass with the pliers or BOOM!
    I might have some left if you need them.

    Re: removing driver side window.

    Well you either have to remove the glass from the lift channel or the regulator from the lift channel. Either way you are drilling rivets. Easiest way is to remove the lift channel from the glass so you are not trying to squeeze it out of the opening. It is the same set up as the AA Body and P body as well as old Dakotas. There is no drilling for the side channel clips. They just pop off.

    If by regulatory you mean the pw motor thats already done. The little pully that the plastic strip rides on broke so they are not together.

    Can you take a picture of where the lift channel is attached to the regulator arm?

    Re: removing driver side window.

    Need to revive this thread. Anyone has luck with the replacement plastic guides you can get from Clipsandfasteners? Seems the silver colored pin that I believe presses into the brass sleeve is too large and causes it to split when forced in. Having a hard time getting it to work as I expect it to.

    Any advice is appreciated.

    The far right brass is the new one, the middle is the one that tore and the far left is the pin.
