    Shite Ron reacted to maxxo in I've done a silly......CITROEN XM   
    been messing about with the XM today
    replaced the drivers side window regulator
    removing the door card, what a fuck on that was.......caused by a hidden screw i didn't see!
    success!!

    now, time to hack apart that 30 odd year old foam padding to get at the regulator
    as an idiot i didn't take photos
    but look at my toolbox! it's shiny and new and it was a gift
    anyway
    removed all 5 bolts from the regulator mechanism, gave the top bolt a wedge out with a screwdriver and then moved the regulator to lower the window
    once the window was lowered enough and it was time to reach your hand behind the glass and undo the clip, just a small piece of (in my case broken) plastic
    now the window is free, i decided to play it safe and do this

    you see, whilst it may well be exciting i didn't really want the window to fall into the door and shatter into a million pieces
    likely cutting my face open and going in my eyes
    so i used the fancy gorilla tape which did it's job
    so now time to remove the regulator
    of course, being french this was a fuck on but i managed it
    yep, looks the same as the replacement which is good
    reassembly is more of a fuck on as you have to put the metal bar in first and then twist the motor mechanism round facing what looks like the wrong way to be able to plug it in
    then try and feel the holes in the door so the bolts on the motor assembly will fit through
    once that was done i then had to align everything
    which would be fine if the window didn't keep coming misalinged
    but anyway managed it in the end and then time to tape up the door padding and put the door card back in
    in doing so breaking the little locking button on that door (central locking still works)

    video-1655827589.mp4 success!
    even one touch works perfectly
    the car is now tolerable in hot weather which is great

    Coffee break time.


    Living the dream!
    Stelvio Pass today. Never fails to bring a big smile 😃 
    Drove up Lake Come which is pretty spectacular.
    Pandas everywhere but no other old cars to be seen. No Unos, Regattas or even 126. Just shed loads of old Pandas.
    Overnight stay tonight at the very top.




     
    Car is running beautifully. Burnt no oil or coolant. Stays around 90 degrees on the gauge.

    More Panda 30 models than you could count. According to one owner, when the 30 was available it was the best selling model in Italy (because it was the cheapest).
    Also back in the day, a company was offering 4x4 conversions on new Panda 30 models. I cannot begin to imagine how slow they must have been🤣
    Quite a few had the plastic van conversion kits although most seemed to be modified for camping or had been repurposed in some way.
    I lay down on the bed last night at about 8.30 and the next thing I knew it was 8am!

    I arrived home at 9pm. 1210km today Zurich to Derby. 14 hours door to door including the tunnel.
    The Panda never put a foot wrong, not a single dodgy moment or anything. Never burnt any oil or used any coolant during the whole trip. I honestly think you could turn it round and do it all again. This is such a good car. Who’d have thought it?

    And just like that….. the journey was over 🥱

    Today has been a pretty fast run. 850kms from Zurich to Calais. Now just the tunnel and home for dinner and cold beer (hopefully).

    At my relatives now in Zurich for a few days.
