Default Not how today was supposed to go

Drivers door window motor was acting up.
Decided to change it.
Watched some videos. They all said change the regulator.
So I tried

I was trying to get the mandrel tapped in on the river that holds the window to the regulator.

Musta tapped a scosh to hard.
When I felt parts of the window land on me I remember thinking OH FUDGE I took a breath and rubbed my head expecting to find blood gushing. So so so thankful it was DOT glass and didn't cut me. Did get a few scratches tho.

I have 28 stitches on my left shoulder and 8 on my left elbow from a glass storm door window.

Wife came out, BTW it's her car I was fixing, she asks what happened. I was fixing to launch tirade, instead took a breath and said it broke. She was like ok.

I finished removing the old part but decided to wait to put the new part in until I get the window. Not sure how big of a PAIN that's going to be...

Mess it's all cleaned up.

I hate messing with anything where the door panel removing is required.

Did mine on a ‘13 F150 last week, still surprised I didn’t break the glass. This weeks agenda is to take the door panel back off and get the 8mm driver out that was left behind and is rattling around and needed for the variable timing solenoid project next weekend. There’s a reason I’m a cabinet maker and not a surgeon.

I had a woman ( not a believer) tell me a story one day about her neighbor doing the same thing as you did. She said the wife came out and asked her husband “ What happened?” The glass broke honey” he responded. Wife says “I’ll go get the broom”. The woman was blown away! She was like “ if that had happened at my house it would have been WW3!! We live and we learn.
