First you need to fully strip the door (and remove the window frame). Obviously you need a pair of manual regulators. They are not always easy to retrofit to more recent windows : the "rail" which is glued to the window has been redesigned in late 70s and the updated version will not fit on manual regulators. On my car, it was simpler to change the windows (I had a pair laying around).

If you want a true backdate look, there is another operation to remove the rotative locking system (77 on). You need to change the pull lever (taller on older cars to be operated directly by pressing on the button) and the locking buttons.

All in all, nothing difficult but a long job to do it correctly.
