|The Toyota pickup came with almost everything. It even came with a full leather interior. The only thing missing was power windows. With a little help from A1 Electric and Electric-Life, the truck is now complete.|
|The Toyota Tacoma is a great truck. However, most of the trucks produced don't come with power windows. With a little help from the professionals at A1 Electric, this truck will soon be complete.|
|The Electric-Life TY88-K power window kit makes a perfect addition to these trucks. These kits completely replace the manual units for a fit and finish that says original equipment.|
|The door panels on this particular truck are finished in leather, so our installer is going to be especially careful not to scratch or damage them.|
|To remove the crank handle you must remove the clip from it's slot. A clip remaoval tool works best, but a small screwdriver or hook can also be used.|
|This is what the clip looks like after it has been removed. Care must be taken not to scratch the doorpanel!|
|The remainder of the trim needs to be removed before removing the doorpanel.|
|Carefully pry up the clips along the edges of the doorpanel using a doorpanel tool (We like to use a paint scraper with the blade slightly bent). Lift the panel up and out.|
|After removing the speaker (if equiped), carefully peel the plastic liner away from the door. (Sharp tugs will help seperate it from the tacky tape that holds it).|
|Notice that the manual regulator is held into the door with 5 bolts. 2 other bolts hold the regulator to the glass. The bolt heads are gold in color.|
|Move the window to make the bottom of the glass accessable. Then remove the 2 bolts holding the regulator to the glass. Have an asistant hold the glass while you are doing this. Broken glass is no fun!|
|We used a pair of suction cups to hold the glass out of the way. Masking tape or a tireless assistant also work fine.|
|At this time our installer removes the 3 remaining bolts that hold the regulator to the door.|
|The manual regulator is now ready to be removed from the door.|
|This concludes the first phase of the installaton,
the "taking apart" phase. The "installation" phase of this project
is shown in part 2 and 3. See part 2 to continue.
