S4/Sprint window frame removal

PostPost by: MikeB » Sun Jul 22, 2018 3:14 pm

Folks

Am planning to take the window assembly out of my 71 Sprint. I've read a few of the threads on this, now the one problem that I have is that the internal door pull handle won't come off easily. I have tried unscrewing it, but he screw heads turn but they do not undo, I assume the spring plates holding the screws are rotating. Will this hinder the frame removal due to the screws protruding into the dorm cavity?

Plus any other tips re removal would be appreciated
Cheers

The handle is secured with large washers and nyloc nuts .... you don't need to remove it to get the frame out. Make sure you tighten it up before you put the frame back in as it's difficult to access the nuts with the frame in place. :wink:
