Day two on the removal and installation of pax rear window regulator on my MY01 Cab. Getting the rear window panel was easy. The inner panel (hard plastic holding the hydraulic piston/rod) was difficult to remove. I spent too much time getting this moved out of the way. The actual window regulator is much easier to remove if you can get to the bottom nut (#9) on the photo.

There are three nuts securing regulator assy: two at the top and can easily remove using 10mm socket. The bottom one which is number 9 photo below is beyond reach. Looking at two options:

1) Drill an access hole on the inner sheet metal panel next to the seat belt assy; located directly behind the pax seat

2) Tap nut w/ a long 18-24 inch flat tip screwdriver

Appreciate any suggestions...I'll post pics later.

Appreciate the TO instructions. I have to skip raising the rear window up (broken). Photos show top view, panel removed and the bottom nut that is driving me nuts. It should slide out. Just need muscle power and hope not to break anything.

Here's more photos. I've replaced everything back for now until I find a way to pry lose the lower part of the window regulator, lower nut (#9) in the photo is playing hard ball...as it's been almost 11 years since orig window installed.

Day 3 & 4 update. I finally got the regulator assy out by unscrewing the lower nut using a makeshift extension for my 1/4 drive ratchet using 13mm socket. In order to fit the socket and to allow side movement, I bent the top fold of the sheet metal where the bolt is anchored. After I removed the #9 nut, had to set the top fold back in place again. From there, just slide the lower part of the regulator less than 1/2 inch towards the front and lift the entire regulator assembly. PIT A**! I'll upload more photos tomorrow.

I agree with this thing being a royal PITA !!

Did you buy a new regulator or sending yours out to repair?

They can not be repaired only replaced.

There are places where you can send yours out and fixed....guy in Rennlist did that...unfortunately he told me after a dished over 500 bucks for a new one...this guy in Brooklyn fixes then for 140.00..with warranty....I will not post the name of the website here.....but a google search will get you there........

" clear1x1.gifOur Price: $140.00 Icon_FreeShipping_Small.gifbtn_addtocart_small.gif clear1x1.gif

You send us your broken window regulator with the motor. We reassemble the motor guides, and replace cables with stronger and much more durable cables. If necessary we exchange plastic pulleys and rebuild regulators that are stronger than the factory issued models. "

Hello, I am repairing a 1999 911 Cabrolet which had been hit in the driver rear quarter panel. The panel was pulled out and smoothed so it looks like new. However, the Water Drain Tube was crushed and I had to replace it. To do so you remove the rear window regulator. So I had the same nut/stud #9 problem above. This was complicated by the metal bracket in the window well was mangled due to the accident (not mine, I bought is as a salvage repair). I did get it removed.

The instruction provided by Loren don't seem to acknowledge this third mechanical connection for the regulator (number 9 in the parts diagram above). So the question is: should I just leave it off? To attach it will require trying to fix the bent bracket in the wheel well (which is just out of reach).

Any advice here would be appreciated.

Best, Steve

Thanks everybody for your information on this, I am about to replace the rear right regulator on my 2000 Cab 4.

In step 4 of Loren's instruction on removing the regulator it says "Release adjusting elements with the adjustment tool -7-." What is the "adjustment tool"?

Thanks,

Jim

Thanks for all the help. With your advice and photos, I was able to replace the rear window regulator on my 2000 Cab 4 in a day.

I found the access to nut number 9. Pull pack the carpet on the seat. There is a wiring harness plug where the seat meets the wall. Pull out the plug and you can access the nut.

I needed to use a 2 x 4 as the spacing block to get the old regulator out easily.

Maryland/chinesefood-

How were you able to put spacing blocks to take out regulator? I followed Loren's instruction to remove regulator and removed every nut and bolts mentioned in the all steps but the convertible-top support is not even moving to fix spacing blocks. Does it requires lot of power and pressure to put spacing blocks?

Per Maryland suggestion, it was easy to remove #9 bolt and I removed #9 bolt quickly but I can't get regulator out from the panel.

See attached photo of current state of the side panel.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Those struggling with that lower nut- there is a rubber plug which when pulled provides access to the nut.
