Thanks! Here’s the info on the door pulls [link]. Check out how close the rollcage is to the door hinges.

Window, regulator, trim strips and rubber all back in place. What a nightmare! I was tempted to remove the door, but the proximity of the roll cage and door hinges would have made that all but impossible.  Thanks to the folks here and a couple of grainy YouTube videos I was able to complete the job in only three days.

Sorry I went to the basement looked it up and still got it wrong. Don't know why, I replace them on all paint jobs and keep a couple of sets on hand. Steve (CTR)

I picked up a door card popper tool from Harbor freight for chump change and it works great. It does not work like the normal ones where you use the body as a pivot point, the base prongs stay put on the body and the center prongs pull up the popper or door card with no damage.

I just popped the other door card off yesterday to repair a sticky door release and wanted to avoid doing it again. These Newton cards are insanely expensive and the cheap fiberboard will only take so many on/off cycles.

From memory I think it's B.

I did a How-To tech article for Minimag several years ago with a step-by-step on how to change these if you have a back-catalogue.

Is anyone familiar with roll-up window mechanisms? My left-side window has been wonky for some time. I removed the door card and found these two channel pieces (see pics) rattling around at the bottom of the door. After studying Haynes I think I've figured out how and where they fit; the rubber slot at the top of the channels fit on the bottom of the window, and the bottom of the channels fit onto the regulator rollers. My question is: How are these channels oriented on the window bottom? Photo A or Photo B?
