Window Regulator Failure

Recommended Posts

While attempting to roll up the driver's side window, something popped, and the window stopped at about 3/4 up. I tried moving the door switch up and down a few more times, and the window budged a bit, but then stopped altogether with what sounded like a broken cable flopping around: no regulator motor sound either. My indy mechanic quoted me around $350, parts and labor with a two-day wait for the regulator assy.

Unless the weather is unreasonably hot, or if it's raining, I usually drive around with everything open. The car is an '05 C2S with around 48000 on the odo. Just thought I'd let everybody know.

That's a good price. I am sure it would take a couple hours

to pull everything apart and put it back together.


Got a quote from Sunset Imports of $158 for the regulator assy part, and that's nearly $50 off the list price I'm paying my mech, but there's an additional day wait plus the day-or-so shipping time. Would anybody know how much difference there'd be in R&R-ing a 997 door panel from a 996 as described in that DIY forum? I could fwd the procedure to my mech if he needs it.

997 regulators are more difficult than on a 996 but still not terrible. That link is a good guide on how to get to the regulator but that inner metal panel does have to come out completely. Once that is out of the way it's no different from any other regulator.
