Window Regulator Replacement

Recommended Posts

I've got the door disassembled and I am ready to put in a new window regulator but I am a little confused. Do I just unbolt everything from the old one and put the new one in? Will the window drop when I disconnect everything and is there anything special I need to line up? It is a little hard to see everything since the inner metal frame is in front of everything.

I am having my drivers side regulator replaced at the dealer today. I know, it's an easy DIY, but the car was there for other stuff anyhow. The window did not drop the 10mm prior to the whole thing finally failing. I was going to buy the micro switch but it turned out to be a problem in the handle.

Anyhow, moral of this post is: make sure you replace or reinstall the moisture barrier. Mine was gone and has been for awhile apparently. There was moisture in the door panel and the wiring for the courtesy light on the door was starting to corrode.
