Hey when you say be forceful with the window rail??? Questions abound... I've taken the small top & bottom nuts off & the rail is fairly easy to move at the bottom but Not at the Top. Do you mean at the top and if so do I pull it down left or right or back then L or R. Should the glass be all the way up, partially down or what...

I am really struggling here and don't want to break something trying to get the Latch actuator out... Can it come out the lower hole or only the Top hole. any help would be much appreciated.
