Hi everyone.  First post, having just recently bought a 13/60 ........... the drivers window won't wind down the last few inches.  Looking at the mechanism, the regulator reaches the end of it's slot in the channel one one side - and will go no further.  Is this an adjustment thing, or is it wrongly fitted?  I reckon the window would have to come out so that the channel can be relocated, but I might be over-complicating!  Thanks.

all door internals are a nightmare to describe,
are both rollers in the glass bottom channel ?
there is some adjustment and reckon there's a stop on the door carcass,
if you remove the glass its pretty unlikely you will remove  and relocate the channel  its tight and been on there for years the rubber gets a real
grip , do also check the NVD frame is secured they are height adjustable to a small degree.

the winder channel can be found to have rotted through and becomes separated ,
sorry not much help here

I recently overhauled both door insides on my 13/60. It is useful to have small Hands when getting everything out. It was a good exercise replacing the leather washers, rubber channel and cleaning an greasing the wind up mechanism which was jammed before. Replacing the guide rubber/felt inside to the window opening is tricky using the Clips provided. The window guide channel front and back had no felt innerds any more which seem to be no longar available so I reinstalled then without - seem to work ok.

For Information, the left Hand door window mechanism had a stop flange fitted which prevented this window from winding down fully. The right Hand did not have this flange but perhaps it had been removed before.
