    I'm not 100% as I have not removed mine yet but from what I heard the mechanism and window comes as 1 from the main dealer.. Obviously you would be able to remove the glass from the rail but it would probably just come off again...

    But like I said I have not done mine yet just what I've read ;-)

    I found this for you, it seems the coupe is different to the saloon and touring ;-)

    Hope this helps ;-)

    It cant be to hard as the coupe has no upper door frame.

    the hardest bit is cutting around the wing mirror plate so you dont let any light in

    Pressing CTRL-ALT and the down arrow is also most amusing

    I done that to my old boss at screwfix and he went mental at me over that i done Pressing CTRL-ALT and the right arrow is also most amusing tho but still funny to see his reaction tho

    You will have a hell of a job getting the windows out mate , I was trying earlier on in the year but the two blocks what are screwed to the bottom of the window were stuck on as well with something like window mastic so couldnt get them off to get window out
