Hi I have a Ford Fairmont MK 11, its a BA model 2005.

How o you remove clips holding window onto window winder system?

I am replacing window winder system RHS, the window has to be down 2/3rd to remove clips holding window on system. There is a video this on YT and it seems you have to have 2 screw drivers going in the opposite direction, seems very tricky and there is one blocked by the door that he did not show how he did that. I am sure the factory had a jig or tool for this but any tips ideas on this? I have opened the clips but nothing pops out.. Not sure what I am doing.

so you want to remove glass & unsure how to unclip. pretty well what you have said is how it is done. unclip from one side then other side [ie do one pair at a time]. don't force it too much as you just want clips out of the way. put something [another screwdriver etc] between the glass clip base & winder clip base so the clip cannot "do up". then do other side same. possibly easier to remove the outside weather strip so you can have the glass out of the way when replacing the winder mechanism. the inner weather strip is a little harder to remove without damaging it.

Thanks - will that is the issue - how do you unclip the glass with those clips? I have the flanges open with screw drivers, but I dont how to move it, its not budging - its also still attached on the one side so its hard to move the glass. I was thinking of putting 5 c coins in between in gaps so cannot close, the one behind metal frame is the issue. Problem is find 5c coins LOL

Also are you saying remove weather strips to remove glass while I put in new system?

Check this YT - problem is when I open them up nothing pops out and as the other side is still on, the glass does not really move. Frustrating - design - just seen a f150 truck and they had bolts urgghhh - why not BA :)
