At the recommendation of Saabits I purchased a new winder for my Saab 900 as the teeth in the old winder appeared worn. I now have the regulator out of the car .The old winder appears fixed in place with large rivets. Presumably I will need to drill these out to replace with the new winder. Anyone out there who can guide me on this? Tried online can't fin any tips.

Haven't done one of these for a long time but I seem to remember I just used to carefully grind the tail of the rivet off with a small grinder and then punch the rivet out.

The rivet is then replaced with a shouldered bolt. Does the repair kit not have any instructions? Sure they used too.

The main thing it says is to drill out the large rivet with an 11mm drill and the smaller rivet with an 8mm drill. The rest, I think, will be self-explanatory.

if you are worried about doing it go to an enhineering firm and get them to cut a section of teeth off the new one and welded onto the old one, then you have enough for 2other repairs minimum. I used the gear off and old one to reapir my front drivers side worked a treat

Before you go any farther, see your other thread where you described the problem.

Many thanks for all the advise. I drilled out the rivets which worked a treat. After a bit of head scratching I finally put everything back together again.( Must remember - No matter how small a job it pays to photograph before and after). Cheers!
