    Granada MkII Estate - Removal and fitting of rear triangle window

    Hi all! I'm glad to have found this great place . I look forward to having interesting discussions about the wondrous Granada! . Unfortunately though, I'm starting out with a problem.

    I'm currently restoring a Granada MkII Estate. The car is running well but just needs some refinement in some areas. One thing that was a problem is the rear triangle window in the rear right door. I bought a replacement window for it about a month ago now but its been driving me mad on how to fit it. I finally had the chance to have a go today but the Haynes manual had no mention on how to remove the triangular window, only the main window. I was able to go so far as to remove the trim but lack of knowledge dented my confidence to go further so I didn't want to chance messing anything up which is why I've come here. I can't find any guides at all to removal and fitting of the window. I've looked around a few Granada club websites but no luck so would anyone know where I could find or provide a guide on how to do it? I would greatly appreciate it.

    In case you don't know which window I mean exactly, I've provided a picture

    most cars are like this so im pretty sure first you need to remove the main window, then the piece between the main and triangular window, before the triangle will come out

    Check on the outer door frame where the track meets frame, there should be a screw on the top which holds it in place, and a bolt inside the door, undo these then you can remove the track and take glass out no problem
