    Default Removing 380 rear side fixed window

    Hi all,

    Haven't posted here in ages but looking for some assistance if anyone can help! I've searched the forum to no avail.

    I had the small rear driver's side window smashed in an attempted robbery (the really little one behind the main window) and was quoted $500 for replacement. I figured I'd be better off cutting a bit of perspex to size and doing it myself, given it's a fixed window.

    Problem is, I can't work out how to get the frame that holds it out of the door. The normal window glass is obvious, there are bolts on the door that remove it. The smaller one not so obvious.

    Any advice?

    an absolute bitch of a thing to get out

    from memory when i did mine you need to take out the main glass

    very very carefully remove the lower outer trim without bending it

    then there are a few screws on the frame it self and it needs to be pulled forward from the top and taken out that way

    I am sure that any state will struggle to put on an equivalent to what MMX was, it was awesome both in the aspect of events and the social aspect after cruises,

    Probably the easiest way is to source a second hand good condition door of the correct colour and swap the whole thing over.

    Normally, just 4 bolts, 1 roll pin in the door stay/strap, and unclip the door electricals wiring - and maybe a pencil to mark the hinge/bolt locations.

    2 people needed of course.

    That's how it was when I needed to swap the rear door on my R31 Skyline.

    A Sydney self help wrecker has 380 rear doors complete for $122.

    Depending on where you are in Victoria, you may be able to avail yourself of similar pricing.

    Thanks for the replies. Replacing the door would certainly be easier! I'll have a bit more of a fiddle but also keep an eye out for red 380 doors. Cheers

    Will have a look. I need to source a tow ball too, so maybe they can help me.
