I've got an 52-reg SX and have just had to remove the front passenger side (near side) window regulator as the plastic bit which attaches to the window had broken. The door was sealed with a foam sealing sheet but you have to remove most of it to get the regulator out :( So before I make a trip to the stealer does anyone know where I might get a cheaper alternative/OEM from?

Thanks.

Hi Mattius, welcome to the forum.

I patched mine up with some tape that I had laying around. It doesn't need to look pretty, only keep the moisture out.

At around about £30 on eBay for the sheet, when they are available, I would expect more expensive at the dealer, some £5 gaffer tape is looking like a deal :)

Thanks for the reply. I was thinking of using a clear plastic dust sheet taped to the inside of the door but wasn't sure it it would be sufficient. Still I'll give it a try and if not I'll just have to brace myself for the stealer wants! :shock:

I think that is a very good idea, and definitely sufficient.

when i use to work at a garage it wasn't unknown to use double sided sticky tape and a camping groundsheet or any reasonably sound plastic sheeting its only to stop water ingress into cockpit and not damaging door cards. :) hope this helps.
