Title: Device and process for mounting cables on a drum of an automobile vehicle window raiser

Abstract: A device for completing the assembly of a window raiser mechanism. The device includes a cover (12) partly surrounding the drum (1) for winding the cables. At the base of the drum (1) a circular tunnel (16) defines a peripheral passage for manually inserting the hooking pellet of the second cable (4). The end pellet of the first cable (3) is inserted in the opening and this cable is then wound on the drum (1) by adjusting this winding in such manner that the opening for the pellet of the second cable (4) is accessible to an operator and that a slider (6), which is fixed to the first cable, is in the end-of-travel abutment position. Then the second cable (4) is manually inserted around the drum (1) on substantially one turn until it is possible to place its end pellet (19) in the corresponding opening (21). Then the loop formed by the two cables is closed.
