More window stuff

Bluebee I found the vapour barrier not too hard to get off without ripping,by accident I found it restuck back on easily because the sun had warmed up the black adhesive.
Not sure about the front window assembly (i've just done a rear repair )but you have to be very careful when testing the unit out the door as the window guide can overun which causes the soft alloy guide to bend.
I had to carefully straighten my guide as this happened to me I think because it runs very fast without the load of the glass on the guide.
