|I've also heard they aren't that easy to do. Kinda like Karmann took a window, motor, and regulator and decided to build a door around it. not build a door and then cut a hole that is sufficent to insert a regulator. |
Eh, you can get the regulator in and out if you try. The fun is getting the window out of your way first. To get the window out of the way, you almost have to stand on your head while twirling 3 plates with your toes, and spinning a hula-hoop around your waist. If you have tint, you'll be lucky if you only have 3 big scratches in it when you're done.
Count me in for a defective passenger regulator. My A1 regulators are at my house already. I just have to stop working 85 hours per week at work (getting paid for 40 hours on salary) The install might take me 2 hours each, if I get all my parts and tools together. I need to get some Mk1 Rabbit radiator mount studs with the rubber bushing in them (search Google for VWW083811 Meyle or W0133-1642582 FEQ Radiator Mount). The A1 (Polytechnica) regulators have have threaded holes in them for mounting hardware. (they do not appear to come with mounting hardware).
I'll have to see if a generic place like a NAPA can come up with the radiator mount studs listed above. I've seen them as low as $1.95 each online. I found what looks like them on NAPAs website: ATM 17111113699 Then again, there are several others that look the same. ~$3 each, I guess I'll just go order some and see what I get.
