“And the man who dreamt of flight has tripped and fallen in a hole.”
Wound up pulling the regulator, cleaning it up and installing a new clip (the real problem here), along with lubricating the rail. Window works great now. Also replacing the window winder handle and the Z arm rest when the panel goes back on the car tomorrow (after I buy some plastic to install on the door opening).
So I was 15 minutes from finishing the brakes and being able to drive the car...now I have three hours of work ahead of me in replacing the wheel cylinder. There's no chance I'm going to get the rest of that bleeder out of the wheel cylinder.
And while I'm at it, I might as well just replace both sides.
The dash looks much better with that clock hole filled.
In addition, I swapped out the 65 exhaust with the VW logo'd 64 and earlier exhaust so I wouldn't have to Mickey Mouse a cover for the fresh air/preheat tubes.
I'm hoping to get some time tomorrow to finish up and take the car out for a drive.
