Everytime we fit a new regulator we replace them. They are relatively cheap and when they get old they get brittle and split through the slot the clip goes through.

Wind the mechanism down almost to the bottom, fit the window and the clip where you can easily get at them through the access cutout.

this is so bloody fiddly grrrrrrrrrr

Hmmm, well you've got an approach problem maybe.I can get these clips on and off in literally seconds, but that does involve having the mechanism in the right spot, as above.If you can't move the window lift and it's in the up position then yes it would be a PITA.

.all of this assumes you are talking about a 90's Bimmer like an E30, E36, E34 etc.
