Door card removal


Hi,

Just fitted new carpets to my 72 convertible, I'm having trouble getting window winder and door latch off to allow me remove the door cards to replace the small carpet section on the bottom of the card, any help would be great,

thanks

Welocome to teh forum

I'm not familiar with your specific model, but if the 72 is the same as earlier years, you'll need of these to get the window winder off

I'm sure that others will be along sonn to to tell me that I'm wrong...

Re: Door card removal


There is a tool you can buy but I use a rag, basically there is a circlip that holds the lock on (not sure on winder as I have electric windows but I'm sure it will be the same) if you get a rag and slide it behind the winder then bring the two ends of the rag together so it is circling the catch, you then slide back and forth with your hands this slides the rag behind the catch, what it will do is catch on the end of the circlip and release the catch, when you need to replace it you simply put the circlip back on the removed catch and simply push it back on, if you can't follow these instructions as it may be not that clear send me a PM and I'll call you and talk you thorough it 👍
