Here is an easy and cheap fix for noisy window regulators. Whenever I closed the doors while windows were down there was a nasty rattle. Turned out the plastic sliders were worn out and loose.

Replaced those and greased the guides and its all good and silent.

Did you have any problems after fitting? I've fit some to my drivers window today and now it no longer goes up.

No, everything works like new.

Took the transmission out. Seems like some of the previous owners had done the clutch already as I think oem one would be LUK.

Epytec lightweight flywheel going in and new clutch parts just for the sake for it.

Need to weight the oem flywheel for comparison.

I think I will give the transmission a good clean with pressure washer and maybe some paint as it looks filthy now.

And when undoing the exhaust I found this:

Didn't even know there was a cat there but this one wasn't breathing too well I think.

I wonder what that is? Something that can take 800c red hot, and not get destroyed. Bit of exhaust gasket perhaps. Interesting.

That piece is just some paint chip off the block that happened to fall in there but the cell looks pretty much collapsed imo.

Decades worth of grease and dirt washed off the transmission. Going to try if Hammerite sticks on the surface and paint it just for cleaner looks.
