Default 66 Coupe front window regulator replacement

Can not figure out how to get the clip off the arm. I have tried with the window up or down and there is now access for my big old hands to remove the clip. Does anyone have a tip or trick? Or am I missing something simple? I have also removed the 4 bolts.

I thought this would be easy...

Good Luck and BE Safe

I once managed to do this by lowering the window about 3 inches, a flat screwdriver and a lot of patience, if you removed the bolts you can pull the arm closer to the access hole and remove it easier.

Hope this helps

If i remember right, you need to take the scissor assy. off the window too (maybe) I do remember that the arm (with hole on right side in yr pic) has to be very easily reachable thru the main hole in door. If thats the arm u are talking about. Didn't have to loosen any of the bolts.

Iv read that other end of that arm is a rivet.

Good luck

I did the same replacement about 6 months ago and I don't remember anything special I had to do. I know I took nothing out of the door except the old regulator. Not that its easy to get to, but there wasn't anything special I had to do. I didn't even have to remove the glass from the door which I thought might be required.

Thanks everyone.
Veronica has a good write up and pictures as usual for what I could see inside the door. Looks like there is a clip that holds on the arm.

NPD sells the hairpin clips if you need one. They rust away.

UPDATE:
Was able to gain access to the clip after removing the piece of metal that was in the hole in the picture. Tip: put a sheet of newspaper in the bottom of the door to catch the clip when you drop it. Was pretty easy after we figured it out. Window rolls up and down easy and does not fall when the door is shut any longer.

Thanks everyone for the help

Good Luck and BE Safe
