  • removal of glass B-160 rear doors

    I tried to search but no luck,
    I am sending my doors out for paint and want to remove the glass and cranks and such. Must the glass be forced from the track at the bottom? the felt tracks side need to come out at the same time?

    I don't have a Fordor, but would it be reasonable for them to come out the top like the front doors in my Tudor?

      On the S/W you need to roll the window down and unhook the window channels at the top and pull the channel up and lean toward the inside of the car. Then as you roll the window up tilt the window toward the inside of the car and the window comes out the through the opening. As the window gets to the top you unhook the window channel from the riser.
      Here is another fordor thread!!

        thanks mitch, all my side felts are glued in so it will be a task, will the window crank have to be unscrewed? to do this.

      Yes as stated ; however, the window cranks and door latches usually don't need to come out. The arm from the crank mechanism has "rollers" on the ends that pop out of the lower window track slot/ hole position when raised. The felts are retained by clips top and bottom without adhesive and pass thru the door jambs where the latches are. After the paint cures, use tape and or other means to protect it at the body window openings when re installing the glass.

        1931 Tudor Rear Side Window Glass Installation
        by Nelson C
        Please advise how a new Rear Side large Window Glass should be installed on a 1931 Tudor Sedan.
        (The old window glass was broken so the old window channels just slid out. Also, the upholstery panel, window moldings, window riser, and rear seat have been removed.)

        Should the new window channels and glass be slid in as one unit?
        Or, should the window channels be installed first,...

        Window regulators by Vintique
        by Hazelhoff
        The Vintique window regulators absolutely do not fit my 29 Tudor doors. The mounting studs are way too high, I guess some 3 mm. The regulator is sitting too close to the window glass. The arm cannot pass the glass rails. Are those from Snyders correct ?

        Installing Window Channels
        by JohnB15632
        Are there any instructions of installing the window channels? Where are they located in relation to the glass? Are they to be installed on center?

        question on 31 cabriolet
        by Tom Bellfoy
        I know the Cabriolet has a roll up window in the doors, does the window have a structural frame around it ? in other words when you roll down the window does it look exactly like a roadster or does the window frame stick out ?

        Drivers Window Creeps up while driving
        by CSPIDY
        For some reason my drivers side window will creep up about and inch and half while I am driving.
        pulled the interior door panel and really didn't see any reason for this. although you can easily pull the window up by simply pulling up on the glass, any thoughts?...

        Window channel
        by Dennis
        Months and years ago Mitch posted the window channel glue he used. I kept some notes and wanted to be sure I get the correct product. My notes tell me I need 3M 08641 adhesive, 38191 mixing nozzles, and a COX M25 mixing gun. Is one cartridge going to be enough for the 4 windows in my Tudor?

        Window felts
        by Art Ebeling
        When installing window felts in the doors and quarters does the upper rubber seal go from all the way across the top with the felt channels stopping at it or does it go between the felt channels with the felts going to the top of the door or quarter frame. Mine is a Victoria but any sedan might be the same....

        Need help identifying part
        by Jamey E
        What is the part called in the top of the window opening on the pass door of 29’ Tudor that the glass goes up to? This fell off of my boy’s car onto the road, & another vehicle ran over it. It is steel, & has felt on it. Also, where can we get another one for his car

        1957 T-Bird Rear Window Installation
        by BudP
        The rear window on my '57 T-Bird popped out when my sons-in-laws were lifting off the top to put it into storage. Checking my T-Bird forums, I find this is fairly common. Time passes and rubber gaskets age. I pulled off the cracking and hardened gasket and cleaned a black tar like adhesive off the glass. I ordered and have placed a fresh gasket around the window (it's one piece and was a tight...
