New (manual) window regulator doesn't fit

Hello alfisti,

After a long period today I started to do some maintenance on my 1985 Spider Graduate again. The old window regulator had to much play which caused to the gears to jump teeth.
I ordered article GL017 from classicalfa.com
I think I installed it correctly, but the cable seems too short to get the regulator installed. Has somebody had the same experience? Is it a faulty part or did I get a part for another model/year? Did I make a mistake installing it?
I already put the adjustment pully to the least tight position.

There are several adjustment bolts that youíll have to use:




Let me know if my picture helped!

In addition the regulator comes with a black plastic circular clip around the pre-winded cord inside the regulator. It may be your issue..

Do not remove it until you are ready for assembly!

Everything must be kept tight and under tension the whole time. Do not allow it to unravel!

I just did this on my ‘87 Spider but with the electric winder. Here’s a couple of tips: 1. Install the regulator first. 2. Loosen the nuts in the bottom bracket. In fact completely remove the rear nut so that the bracket can tilt up. 3. Once u r ready to install the windings start with the top pulleys then grab the wire in the middle between the 2nd and 3rd pulley and loop to the front pulley on the bottom bracket. 4. This leaves u with just looping to the last pulley which will be the rear one on the bracket. Do this while tilting up the bracket. U can the leverage the bracket down to the bolt.
