Has anybody done this?
If you have already done this window before, then what type of fasteners did you use? If you used something like nuts and bolts then it shouldn’t be that bad but if you used pop rivets then you will have to drill them out. I did the drivers side about a year ago (2001 Z28-window was up) and I purchased some motors from a place on e-bay called A1 Auto (in New York), they have an order line you can call. I have the stuff to do the passenger side but haven’t had to do it yet (keeping my fingers crossed). IMOP I would just open it up and get to the motor and let it drop into your hands and then walk the window into the up position. That way you will have all the room that you need. A friend on the site here (DjD) sent me a procedure w/ pictures on how to do it and where to drill the holes. It really wasn’t that bad.
