This applies to my 1972 SE5a

This is the Conversion from Wind Up/Down Windows to Electric. Completed December 2004. I acquired the Electric Units from a Donor Car I purchased for the Engine/Gearbox/Overdrive. Not a difficult Job to do, I hope this helps someone. The biggest problem I had was removing the Top two screws on the Right Door Winder Assembly. Over the years the rain etc had dripped down the window and onto this area, due to the screws being cross head it was impossible to get the required leverage. It was out with the angle grinder. I cannot complain as this was the first time that any screws/bolts had caused a problem since I started working on the Car at the beginning of the year and considering what has been done up to now that can't be bad. As said on other pages on this site ignore "Looks" this is the Job for Summer 2005, making it look nice.

Obviously remove the Door Panel/Card. To do this the Window Winder has One Screw holding it and the Door Opening Handle surround has to be removed. There is a Top and Botttom to this surround and by gently levering away Up or Down they will come off. Try to keep as "Square" as possible as it looks like they could break if removed at an angle. The Door Panel/Card can npw be removed.

When fitting. slide end of Arm into channel at Base of Window. A few "Wiggles" and it will go in.

Make sure you connect wires to Motor before fitting into Door. It could be possible that the Motor Wires are the wrong way round so try to confirm Up is Up and Down is Down. If wrong just reverse the Connections to the Motors.
