I called my VAG mechanic buddy last night for some sympathy and practical
advice, and he said it was standard dealer procedure to 'separate the
door', i.e. mark the position of the glass channel and take it off.

I'm very weary of increased wind noise caused by misalignment of the glass
channel bit, but I'd guess that the operation would be 100% easier this way.

Any thoughts or BTDTs on this, anyone?
