Volvo Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Yes you have the process correct, I am sure I have replaced these without removing the window channel but it can be a bit fiddly, so removing the channel fixings does make it easier.
ensure when you re-fit the window guides you have the correct size pop rivets as any smaller ones will allow the channel to move slightly, Also when you pop rivet the channel back into place do it with the window down so you can ensure the channel is in the correct position. There is a little bit of leeway.
Most important don't forget to refit the cable, I have seen these put back together only to find the cable was not put in place when it was easily accessible.
