Default 68 Window Removal

I'm stumped! I'm trying to remove the window and the rest of the window stuff from the door of my 68 coupe. It has power windows and the window is up. It's a basket case project that I bought disassembled a couple years ago and I don't even know if the power motor works. SO... is it possible to remove this window? If so, how? Thanks, Jason

If possible, use jumper wires attached to the power window motor to lower the glass enough to loosen/remove the brackets/rollers that hold the glass onto the lifting frame so that you can pull the glass out.

If you can't do that....use a wrench or small ratchet to reach up inside the door and loosen the brackets/rollers...then carefully lift the glass out.
