[QUOTE=WolfeMacleod;15853708 They swelled, and became too thick.[/QUOTE]

Be careful Wolfe...with descriptions like this you could be responsible for 968 owners everywhere causing a run on this aerospace stuff!

Also your excellent video has just been banned for PED's.... The standards committee will be reviewing your next video very carefully for any antics and use of any PED's while performing the procedure. Im officially back on the fence with this tactic being an internet legend.

Heh. I use 303 religiously. I sure wasn't expecting the swelling result, though.
I redid the swelled seal today Took about 5 minutes. I did give it a good spray of 303 beforehand.

I'm not sure what you mean by "PEDs"

It wasn't all that difficult, really. My thumbs aren't particularly strong.
I'll bet a popsicle stick used as a lever, throught the seal, and braced against the metal top of the microswitch would work great. Push the free end of the stick towards the window, stretch the seal just enough to make slipping over the mechanism easy.

Seriously, using this method was stupid easy. So easy in fact, that I'd be willing to do it for local Seattle cars.

I have removed the tiny screw on the back of the microswitch, but can't figure out how to remove it from the handle itself.
I finally figured out that the easiest way (hmm, not sure that is a good description) is to remove the window regulator, window and then there is access to the top screw for the rear lower window track. With all that out, there is all kinds of access. Easier to do that than to futz around trying to get the linkage on with no access.

Bent screwdriver works well.

Tried that too. So did a neighbor.

Seriously. The method I filmed was stupidly easy.
