Left Rear Door Window Mechanism

NOTE: While working on this door panel, take care not to damage the delicate lock pin:

Step 01

Fit Gear 1 over the upper post of the Left Rear Door Inner Panel and secure it with one (1) HP screw, as shown.

Do not over-tighten these gear screws. They need to be tight enough to prevent wobble, but also allow smooth rotation:

Fit Gear 2 over the lower post of the Left Rear Door Inner Panel, meshing its gears with Gear 1, and secure it with one (1) UP screw as shown:

Step 02

Peel the Stickers from their backing paper and stick them to the upper inner edge of the Left Rear Door Inner Panel, as shown.

As before, I tried to place these so the top edge of the Stickers would not be visible from outside the door:

Thoughts


I am actually quite surprised that Eaglemoss included window mechanisms in all of these doors. I figured they would only include the mechanisms to roll down the front doors. Nice!
