Window Regulator Problem?


Recommended Posts

I have a 1999 Porsche 996 and all of a sudden the passenger side window will not go down that one-inch length when opening and closing the window. The window operation works perfectly though other than that problem. My question is, do I simply need to replace the window regulator or do I need a new motor? Any details would be greatly appreciated.

Rizzo:

The motors rarely go bad in comparison to the frequency of window regulators "stretching" or fraying and needing replacement. What you have described are the classic symptoms of a "stretched" window regulator cable or assembly.

Although it deals with a 986, it should be the same or very similar for your car. One minor difference is that when you install the new regulator, you need not use the additonal "bump stop" that is usually included with a rivet in a small plastic bag. The 996 uses the lower bump stop (on the front rail of the window regulator only).

Good luck, and let us know how you make out, and what your defective window regulator looked like.

Regards, Maurice.
