2000 996 carrera 2 6 speed coupe - Window Regulator

Recommended Posts

I need to replace the driver side window regulator.  I have seen that many aftermarket window regulators are available at prices that vary significantly.  I was also told that re-built original units can be purchased, but I could not find any online.    I would consider both options.


Any recommendations?

I hate to say it....buy a Window Regulator from Porsche, or a vendor that sells Porsche OE Window Regulator.  Going cheap on this one is nothing but trouble.  Your OE window regulator lasted 19 years, so you want another one that will last another 19 years.  It is not a painful job to replace the window regulator, but with a cheap knockoff or "re-built" regulator, you will be replacing it again within a year.

      What is the correct part number(s) for my 2002 Boxster passenger side window regulator? Is the motor included?

      Hey everyone,
      Need help on window regulator and window gasket issues.
      I've currently replaced the regularor in my 996 (MY 99) 3 times...WTF!!!  (1st) plastic compression fitting near the motor failed. (2nd) The regulator cable got frayed. (3rd) Regulator cable jumped off one of the roller wheels. I believe that the issue is my outer window gasket getting pulled inward as I roll the window down causing certain items on the regulator to fail.  BTW, it only happens when it's hot, I have no problems with the outer gasket when it's cold or at night.  Is there any fix for that other than replacing the entire gasket assembly?
      Also, the two bottom nuts that adjust "rake" angle, what exactly do they do?  I set them both inward & outward and didn't notice a difference with how the window sealed.  Am I missing something?
