Re: Upgraded Window Regulators: New Pictures and New PDF\'s
You are correct. Removing the locking tab lifter from the lock mechanism is the best way to re-install the lock to the regulator.
Then, you can feed the locking tab lifter bar through the regulator hole and onto the lock, once you've re-installed it onto the NEW regulator.
So yes, you've answered your own question about why it wouldn't work all that well.
PS you have to be very, very careful when removing the door lock from the regulator panel. The tab lifter rod is attached at a plastic piece that has a thin arm that keeps it aligned.
IT IS VERY EASY TO BREAK THE PLASTIC TAB [img]images/icons/shocked.gif[/img] [img]images/icons/shocked.gif[/img]
If you do, then it's a NEW door lock!!
