    Hello All:

    It is a beautiful day, and I am crusing down the road in my beloved
    1988 Lancer Shelby. Let's turn the AC off and roll down the windows.

    Classic problem; window went half way down and the motor just whirrls
    away. No Up, No Down, just loud motor whirring.

    I stopped by ye ol Chrysler dealer and got a replacement tape for $25.

    Now, it has been about 10 years since I tackled this job, but I recall
    drilling out many revits, unwinding a LONG track from a small opening
    in the door panel (a feat in itself), cutting the new tape to fit and
    threading onto track, trying to remember how to get that LONG regulator
    track back inside that little door opening, and reassembly.

    I thought I read somewhere that you could rethread the new tape without
    removal of the regulator's track?

    Any tips, or tricks apprecaited! Thanks,
