    Any ideas? Get the window tension spring back in place

    Update: Figured out that someone had attached the spring 180 degrees out at center. Once I got the spring hooked (that was a bitch) on found there was way to much tension on the gear movement. Looked at the passenger side assembly and saw the attachment at the center was 180 degrees out...

    Any ideas? Get the window tension spring back in place

    Ok, this what I was thinking. Lot of effort to get the spring back I place with minimal or no gain in overall window up/down performance. The motor will maintain the window position. Actually plan to work on this project tomorrow. I have a couple of ideas for the spring. If they work out great...

    Any ideas? Get the window tension spring back in place

    I am starting the window upgrade. First problem is one of the tension springs came off at some point in the past. Any innovative ideas on how to get it back on?

    1 window works and 3 do not

    After verifying power to all the switches decided that I needed to remove door panels and check each window. As most of you anticipated all 3 windows were stuck. Once I helped the motors they are all working again. I likely put the windows up without watching each of them to ensure they were...

    1 window works and 3 do not

    I will try your suggestions. Not sure why 3 would stop working all of a sudden. I could see this being the the problem if it was one window. It feels like the problem is something that effects the entire system. Thanks.

    1 window works and 3 do not

    Yep, no breakers. VIN 2250403 was manufactured on December 15th, 1972 and delivered on January 09th, 1973 Thanks for the info. The only thing left would be the load shedding relay. This is the only common piece that would cause 3 of the 4 windows to not function, maybe? Power to fuse 8 and 9...

    1 window works and 3 do not

    I was driving the other day stopped that car, rolled up the drivers side window. Came back out of the store and now on the rear drivers side window is the only one that is functional. Load shedding relay? Any others with this type of experience? Thanks

    AC AUX FAN INSTALLATION

    Had to grind or file the head on the screw to fit in the clip. Easy work with a cordless drill and file. Worked perfect.

    Cleaning/polishing interior aluminum

    Replaceing the shifter boot turned into some refurb work on the shifter console. Constant rabbit hole What is the best why to get these back to looking good? Looked around for threads as I am sure there are many about this work. No luck. Can someone send me in the right direction. Thanks.

    Sun Visor clip unobtainium

    I saw that. In this picture the clip looks like the one you have. The one I have looks like the ones ordered from la jolla. Just making sure a screw belongs in the location inside the clip itself. Seems logical. Thanks for the feedback

    Plastic Seal between front fender and rocker

    I measured the side that is in place. 8.5". one side is all I need. But, it may still be available. I think those pictures were taken at the optimal angle and location. :rolleyes:Thanks

    Plastic Seal between front fender and rocker

    Peter; Thanks. I will check out the area prior to the seal re-install. The passenger side is nicely sealed. The driver side looks like it came out at some point. Can probably find a reasonable replacement for the BMW part. Would like to see if I can locate the correct seal piece first. Anybody...
