    I was helping my dad turn a 72 Grand Prix into a drag car, so I had to remove the power windows. I unbolted the assembly and the motor fell off and then my thumb was caught in a bear trap. At first my dad thought I was kidding. After 1/2 an hour of being stuck in a door, I got the smart idea of turning the motor gear just enough to loosen the grip and bingo!

    There is a reason why you shouldn't put your hands in places with limited space or vision! R)
