    1958 Nash metro door questions...

    I'm pulling what's left of my hair out here.

    Trying to remove the door glass and door handle (Hinge screws are all stuck, gave up on putting door on the bench).
    Removed every screw and bolt from the interior door skin and it's still a big mystery. The handle is held by some spring or clip but it's not clear how to release that.

    Anybody have the answer to taking out the glass and handle?

    Thx.

    push the door panel around the handle in-against the spring--then you will see a "pin" that holds the handle--both door and window--

    Did that, got the handles off.
    My problem is the window channels. I'm trying to take those off and am having quite a time doing so.
    Found that I need to weld some new threaded pieces on the channel, doing that now.
    Got the rear channel off, not yet the forward one.
    Still frustratingly befuddled about the 'Chinese Jigsaw Puzzle' that comprises my doors!

    UPDATE: Found that the window channels come out vertically, having to roll the window down and up as I work the channel out.
