Default dealer bu##*##ts

Just how difficult is it to pull off the door panels for the right rear door panel? Was told it would take "special tools" to do it and the dealer wants $75 just to remove it. They claimed the regulator was broken last month and sh#t rigged it to stay up. A month later its falling down and the dealer claims it will cost me $700 dollars to fix the window . I dont where they came up with that but it seems really unreasonable. And dammit, if i can repair million dollar aircraft, i can fix it myself.....any pointers ?

You get a regulator off ebay for $160 or abouts.
Not hard to do, simple tools only. You can get an upolstrey tool for $2 but a arge flat blade will work.

Or if you dont care about the window working, a bolt through the window arm will keep it up (or in my case a pair of small vice grips )

Thx......went to autozone got the special tool {$2.59}, got home and tore it down and put back together again and had it done in about 20 -30 minutes. I'm trying to get over the fear of tearing into this thing...more later.
