    ok for all that may have these trucks in case the spring breaks, you need to break the spot weld on the lower window rail to be able to giva ya enough room to remove the latch mechanism assembly....
     
  3. Most cars you are going to have to remove or at least loosen the window channel to remove the latch. HRP
