    Hi, thank you for the swift reply. Maybe I haven't explained myself quite well, I have the broken forward plastic slider in my hand but to remove it from the door I need to have the Bowden cable removed, this I could do by cutting a slot into the edge of the plastic and lift the cable out through the slot just cut, this is all very well but a new slider may be sealed at its base thus not giving me access to replace the cable. I am thinking if I also cut a slot in the replacement and then use a soldering iron to melt the plastic closed again. Your comments appreciated.

    As I say, take the Mech out. May be impossible to fit the new slide without a good view of what's going on, can't remember how the cable runs through them.

    It appears then that I should replace the whole regulator, there are 2 large holes in the door, the front one from where I've removed the radio speaker and a rear hole showing a metal strut which I guess is part of the regulator, is this right? So which hole will the mechanism come out from, front or rear?

    once you have it loose you will wiggle it out without issue, can't remember which way.

ID:	20352Hi, I have decided to try the cheapest way at this time and have ordered on ebay as the picture shows. I am still waiting delivery. I am going to try and send you another picture showing the broken slider with the Bowden cable attached, I am hoping that as the cable is loose that I can it back onto the mechanism without too much trouble. Hope you get this picture and my next one to send seperately. Any further help will be appreciated.

ID:	20353This is my broken slider, do you think I will need to remove the regulator to get the cable right? Also how does the motor connect to the regulator, will I need a plug disconnect somewhere to remove the regulator?

    IIRC, the complete regulator with motor comes off after removing just a few screws - there are some "you-bend" guides out there which are very good. Disconnect it and bring it in somewhere comfortable to work and replace the plastic parts, grease and put back.

    Thanks Neilr for your posting, as the slider will be removed whilst the regulator remains fixed in the door I can see no reason to remove the regulator, unless that is the only way to get the Bowden cable back on correctly. What do you think?

    I think I taped the window up so it stayed put, removed the complete regulator assembly because that is what was suggested. Getting the cable back on was hard in the comparative warmth and comfort of my kicthen. In the car door, I expect I would have amputated a few fingers at least and maybe a hand and still not succeeded The regulator comes out relatively easily and then it is easier to work on too so there is no good reason not to take that approach.

    This looks like the guide I used:
