This thread is great. One question for those who have performed this repair...
My passenger side front window won't even roll down; it's stuck in a "fully closed" position. (I don't need tape or anything to keep it shut.) This means I'll have trouble reaching the glass retaining clips, since they will be near the ledge of the window, where there's a bunch of metal in the way.
I'll need access to those two clips and torx screws, either to diagnose the problem (hopefully, it's just loose clips, not the regulator itself...) or to remove the glass to replace the regulator.
Any ideas? Can I push the glass down by force, or yank down on the cables as if I'm opening some old school dining room curtains?
