Answer . There is a c type clamp on the inside of the hand control where it meets the door. You will have to push in on the doors panel to see it, its usually copper colored. It comes out in one direction, you will need to get a flat head screwdriver and push one of the ends of the clamp (pin as …its really like a "c"wire) and id should pop out and you can pull the knob off. Put the pin on the knob (but not all the way into the slot) before installing the knob. then after you slide the knob on use a screwdriver to pust the "c" pin back into place. (MORE)
If you are replacing the rear window regulator in your 2001 Lincoln LS how do you remove the bracket from the window?
Answer . The bracket snaps on the window over the plastic pin in the window. You need to pull the bracket away from the window to get it down and over the plastic pin. If you will be replacing the window regulator you can just cut the bracket where it snaps over the pin.
Changing a window regulator on a Hyundai I have a 2002 Accent with power windows. May work on other models. The tools you will need: A #2 Phillips head screwdriver. A Standard head screwdriver. A 10mm Socket and ratchet. First take out all of the screws in the door panel. There is one in the handle… that opens the door, and 2 in the door panel handle. Use the flat screwdriver to pop off the covers. Taking out the door handle is a little tricky. Slide it towards the front of the car and pull out. You might not get it the first try. Once you get the handle out enough, you will be able to see 2 metal rods connecting to it(towards the back of the car). Using the standard screwdriver, pull the plastic piece(either blue or red) towards you and it should unclip from the rod. Next, pick up on the rods and they should come out of the handle. Once all screws and the door handle are removed, you can take off the panel. To remove the door panel, simply pull it off, starting at the bottom of the door and prying your fingers between the panel and the door. You will hear a series of pops. You didn't break anything. If it doesn't come fairly easy, don't pull too hard. You may have missed a screw. Once the panel swings freely on the window slot, get it close to the door and pick up, as the top rests in the window slot. If you have power windows, you will have to unclip the wires going to the switch. Once the panel is off, drop the window and remove the 2 Phillips screws holding the window on the track. After the window is off, tape it up so it is out of your way. Next, take the socket and remove the 3 nuts holding the window motor, (towards the front of the car, in the middle), and then the three(maybe four) that hold the metal track in place. Once those are off, good luck getting out the hole in the bottom of the door. It will not free fall in the door as the stud screws are attached to the motor and regulator. You will also have to disconnect the motor wire. Once it is out of the door, there are 3 screws or bolts that hold the motor to the regulator. take those out and the motor should slide off easily. Then do it in reverse to put it back together. (MORE)
Answer . \nI drove one about 600k. They do not usually go bad. Once the door panel is removed, there is about 4 bolts holding an "x" type assembly(heavy metal old style regulator used by many manufacturers, including GM). Motor itself can fail, and is attached by a couple of screws, and is in… a black plastic enclosure(replace the whole plastic assembly). If you live in the snow belt, and you try to lower the window when it is still stuck to the rubber moulding, it will strip out a few teeth, and will not go all the way up. Usually about an inch still open. One cure for this is to remove the "x" assembly, and take it to a weld shop. They can braze you a couple of spot drops in place of missing teeth. Basically a couple of drops of weld. You can then file them down to look like the rest of the teeth on the assembly. Grease all the teeth real well, and you will be in good shape for many years. More than likely, your problem is the latter. (MORE)
Can you replace the rear driver side window regulator in a '95 Marquis by yourself or should you pay someone?
Answer . It is not one of the easiest repairs. The factory uses rivets instead of screws so that the the average person would have to take it back to the dealer to have it repaired. They do not make a lot of profit when they sell you the car but they are hoping to make a little each time you brin…g it back for repairs. You can force the center of the rivets out then drill the heads off but you will have to have bolts, nuts and lockwashers to reinstall the motors/regulators. (MORE)
I have an 02 Tracker and have had trouble with regulator. It was repaired while under warranty by dealer. I happened again about 2 years ago. When I saw how expensive the part was to fix it I decided to live with it. But my husband simply spayed silicone down into the window opening and it now works… great about 90% of the time (MORE)
Answer . real easy. take off the door panel and speaker. then it is basically just a few bolts that hold it in place. the glass clips into the plastic guide by 2 clips. pretty much just plug and play. put the new one in as you took the old one out. took me about an hour never having done it befor…e on a 2001.

Problems with the left rear door window switch Replaced the regulator and the motor but the window will not go up but goes down with no problem any suggestions Thank you?
try looking on the back side of the actually switch it self, sometimes they just get disconnected, under the switch that is on the door, anyhow, if one works and one doesnt, up.down, sometimes the cord has just come off the switch, try that?
You have to drill the rivets on the motor separating it from the regulator. The new motor then mounts to the regulator and you insert the new bolts where the riverts were.
Answer . \nCall the professionals at an automobile glass shop. Replacing automobile glass is a job best left to the professionals. Your insurance should cover the cost with no deductible.
After seeing this question asked a dozen times, and halfwayanswered a few times, I decided to put together a comprehensive'how-to' for this common defect. I have replaced every window regulator in my 1996 grand marquis atleast once, the driver door 3 times. I can do it in the dark. Don'tdo any of t…his until you are sure you need a new regulatorassembly. If you can slide the glass up and down a good bit byhand, you probably need this. If the window works OK but getsjammed or cock-eyed during up/down motion, you have a differentproblem. If the window motor doesn't do anything at all, check thatfirst. New replacement regulators can be found for about $30 delivered oneBay, they are superior to the OEM part. First you need to understand that it could be either the regulatorOR the motor causing your problem ...even if you hear the motorturning and trying to raise the glass it could still be a bad motor(actually bad nylon gears within the motor assembly.) Step one is to remove the door panel and speaker: -Pry out the 'cup' behind your door opening handle. -Gently remove the window switch panel. It should pop up and out,then disconnect all those wires. -Remove the screw you just revealed that goes into the door frame. -Remove screws on both ends of the pull handle (behind moldedrubber plugs) -Remove the screw hidden in a tunnel at the bottom of the door. -Lift the door panel straight up (slide it up along the door.) Itshould pop up about an inch or so without much effort, if not lookfor hidden screws. -Pivot the bottom of the door panel out a few inches, then lift upa little more to remove it. Disconnect any remaining wireharnesses. -Carefully set door panel aside. -Door speaker is mounted to a molded plastic housing, like aspacer. There should be three screws securing the housing to thedoor, remove these screws and remove the speaker (don't forget todisconnect it.) -Carefully (and I mean carefully) start at the bottom and peel backthe plastic sheet covering the door. You'll glue or tape this backinto place so don't tear it up. Don't completely remove it, leavethe top glued to the door, you'll thank me later. I just roll it upand tape it back. After you get the door panel and speaker mounting off take a goodlook at what's going on in there. The regulator is basically ametal track that runs from top to bottom with a cross plate thatslides up and down on cables and holds the glass. The motor itselfis remotely mounted and connected by cables. The motor is attached to the regulator by nothing more than cables.The motor is mounted to the inner door skin (three Torx screws thatgo through the door skin, through the motor assembly, and threadinto the nylon cable housing.) These screws not only hold the motorassembly to the door, they also hold the motor assembly to theregulator. Don't grind off the rivets in that vicinity, you don'tneed to. Just pull the three Torx screws and have a hand ready tocatch the motor assembly inside the door. Carefully slide the motorassembly from the regulator housing and take it out. Before goingany further, test your motor. If you can twist it by hand, it'sbad. Reconnect it's wires and press the window button. If it seemsto work and sound good then you can reuse the motor. If youquestion it at all, replace it. The $ spent is worth avoiding thishassle a second time. There are two rivets (yes, rivets) that secure the glass to theregulator, perhaps the most idiotic thing Ford has ever done. Thereis only a very small window of opportunity to get access to these,the window has to be in just the right place to line both of theserivets up with their access holes (for removal AND installation.)You may have to manually pull the window to the right position. Ifthe regulator is adequately screwed up, the cables could be boundand make moving the window impossible. May have to cut the cables.Whatever you have to do, get the holes lined up for access. Pop theheads off these rivets without breaking the glass, this is a trick.I use a large high-speed metal drill bit to get the head off, justdrill dead center until it comes off. If the drill even kisses theglass, it shatters. Good luck with that. Once the glass is detachedfrom the regulator, lift it out by pivoting it forward, thensliding it out from outside the door. I don't know how better todescribe that, just figure it out. Set it safely aside. The regulator assembly is held on by two rivets at the bottom andtwo nuts at the top. At the top of the door is a metal bar, like agrab handle but sharp and ugly. Behind it are two holes and in eachhole is a nut that holds the top of the regulator in place. Removethose two nuts and set them aside. Remove the two rivets holdingthe bottom of the regulator in place, then you should be able towiggle the regulator assembly out through the large access hole. Installation is pretty much the reverse of removal. -*Advised* lubricate the window channels while the glass is out.WD-40 doesn't work, grease doesn't either. I found that stuff likePledge or Orange Oil works good if you can get enough in thechannel. -Remove all debris (rivet pieces and whatever) from the door cavityor rattles will drive you nuts later. -Put the regulator in, loosely attach top nuts. -Pop new rivets into lower mounting points, use bolt/nut if youdon't have a rivet gun (about $9 you tightwad.) -Install motor assembly (those three torx screws) and connect it'spower source. Make sure it goes up/down as expected by plugging theswitch panel back in and testing. Run the regulator to it's lowestposition for installing the glass. -Carefully slide glass back into door frame. Make sure glass is intrack both front and rear. Notice the angle cut in the glass at theback bottom? That's to help pivot it into place... Slide glass tofully raised position and tape it in place or have someone strongenough hold it up. Then carefully move regulator into properposition that gives you access to mount the window. -Reattach glass to regulator (I always use bolts with nylock nutsand thick nylon washers instead of more rivets.) -Tighten top two nuts, make sure regulator assembly is very secure. -Run window up and down, make sure it moves freely ...adjust ifnot. -Reattach the plastic sheet that was rolled up earlier, use sprayadhesive or duct tape. Looks don't matter, you won't see it but youWILL feel the hot/cold air if you don't get this plastic sheet backon good. -Replace the speaker housing, reconnect wires. -When putting the door panel back on the tricky part is the lockthat sticks up and out the top. It's tough to line up. I found iteasiest to unscrew the pretty chrome cap and shove a length ofsmall I.D. scrap hose over the threaded stud. Then I can use thehose to pull the lock up through the hole as I set the door panelon. -Start with the top of the door panel, make sure it is in it'sgroove at the top and the lock is through it's hole, then let itpivot down against the door. Once this looks good, gently lift upon the bottom of the door (sliding it up against the door) untilyou can engage the other 'hooks' and settle the door panel back tothe right place. Make sure it all looks right, may have a hook notengaged. -Reconnect wiring, test again. If you connected the wrongconnectors together, some things won't work. Color coordinated? -Replace removed screws & trim panels ...now go spend that $150 you just saved on something more fun. (MORE)
To remove the regulator unit:. 1. Pry off the small rectangular screw cover inside the door pull and remove two screws. Pry off the door handle trim and the window switch trim. The door panel is pried off with a stiff putty knife or similar tool. Remove the door panel.. 2. Pull off the black rubbe…r insulation. It is held on with a gooey rubber adhesive.. 3. Place the window in the closed position and use masking tape to hold it in place. Loosen the two 10mm nuts on the window attachment clamps. Use a 10mm deep socket inserted through two 1" diameter access holes in the door frame.. 4. Unplug the power wire from the motor and unhook the clips holding the regulator cable housings in place. Remove the three black screws and peel off the speaker to gain access to the lower screw attaching the regulator. (Don't poke a hole in the speaker foam cover).. 5. Remove the three 10mm screws attaching the regulator to the door frame. The regulator should be loose now. Turn it slightly and remove it from the door.. 6. I haven't replaced the unit yet, but the installation should be the reverse process. I'm sure some window adjustment will be necessary using the window clamps. (MORE)
Answer . With the door open, apply a piece of duct tape to the outer surface of the window, run it up and over the top of the door and apply it to the inside surface of the window. This will hold the window in place while the regulator is being swapped. . Remove the window and lock control porti…on of the armrest by pulling up on it. Disconnect the cables. . Remove the two screws holding the panel to the door. . Lift the door panel up, then out slightly. . Disconnect the courtesy light bulb and finsih removing the panel. . Remove the bolt holding the door operating handle. Slide the handle forward to remove it. However, leave it connected to the lock mechanism. . Pull the plastic sheeting off, leaving the door operating rod through it. Slide it to the side. . Loosen the two bolts, one per side, that clamp the regulator to the window. . Both of these bolts may not be visible, depending on where in its travel the regulator failed. You may have to get creative and/or stuggle a bit here by adjusting the duct tape and reconnecting the window switch to adjust the height of the window until both bolts can be loosened. (Often a failed regulator can still be operated if a lot of the load is removed from it. You may need a helper to lift the window while you operate the switch to move it up and down to access the clamp bolts.) End by lifting the window to its highest point and retaping it in place. . Remove the six bolts (three per side) holding the two regulator rails to the door. . Disconnect the motor wires. . Remove the regulator assembly. You'll have to slide the parts of it around and angle them out of the door. . Installation is the reverse of removal. However, here are some tips to make it a little easier. . Remove the courtesy light housing and manual lock switch from the door panel prior to putting it back on the door. These are dealt with much easier individually than attempting to keep them wired/aligned while lining up the door panel tabs and sliding it into place. (MORE)

Answer . This is a complicated task. My friend who is auto-friendly ended up taking his van to a mechanic to replace both the driver and passenger window regulators. The astro van is notorious for this kind of repair. It cost him $400.00 including tax for each regulator.The regulator itself is… about $200.00- $250.00. I am going to have a look at my own van as my passenger window will not operate at all. Will let you know what kind of luck I have if any. (MORE)
This is only a quick general description. The door panel must be removed. There is a plug in door panel up top right or left depending on what side you are working on that must be removed. Also in the top handle there is a screw behind a small cover for the door upper handle, remove it. The whole bl…ack plastic behind the upper handle needs to get pulled out. Next take off the bolts for the handle itself so it moves. There are 2 screws in the lower handle both have covers, remove them too. Carefully pop the panels in the lower part of the door working your way around. Next take off the black plastic side view mirror cover. Next remove the panel by working it up and out of its track. There will be plastic barrier on the door that must be removed to access the bolts. Un-clip all wires from the panel. You will at some point need to plug back in the window switch to move the widow to the point of accessing the bolt on the track that needs a ratchet to get to. Now you should be able to see 2 bolts holding the window on the track and I believe 3 or 4 that hold the motor in place. Pay close attention to how its in at this point, you will need to pull it all out but don't forget mounting points. The window will need adjustment with the new track in place so make sure you do the alignment before putting the panel back on.

Whats the procedure for replacing a 2001 Buick Lesabre window regulator on the right rear passenger side power window?
Tools required 10 mm socket and 3" extension #2 Phillips screwdriver putty knife wire cutter door panel removal tool - available from any auto parts store straight blade screwdriver Estimated time to replace 1 1/2 to 2 hours Cost of new actuator AND motor - $50 on eBay - 11/07 Th…is procedure assumes a new unit will be installed. 1 - remove trim piece from around the door handle by prying it out along the top and front edges. Once loosened, it comes unhinged from the back edge. 2 - remove the Phillips head screw from metal bracket, that is revealed after removing the trim piece 3 - pry the inside light assembly from the door panel and remove the bulb socket from the housing 4 - pry the door panel from the frame using a panel removal tool by starting at the bottom (this GM design is greatly improved from the old assembly system - ie: 94 Chevy Caprice) and releasing the 7 plastic studs from the frame. 5 - Remove the 2 mounting bolts for the rear door controller and disconnect the cables. 6 - use a putty knife and door removal tool to remove the plastic vapor barrier. 7 - reach inside the door and locate the cable that is attached to the bottom of the lift mechanism and then cut it. 8 - push the window class to the full UP position (this will locate it horizontally and vertically) and tape it in place. 9 - near the top of the sheet metal there will be 2 openings (1 square and 1 round). When the glass is in the full up position, there will be (2) 10 mm bolts in view. Loosen these bolts which will open the rubber coated clamps on the bottom of the glass. The lift mechanism will free fall to the bottom position when these bolts are loose. 10 - remove the window lift motor plug and (3) 10 mm nuts that hold the lift mechanism in place and remove through the opening at the front of the inner door sheet metal. It will take a little bit of turning and twisting to remove the unit. 11 - loosen (do not remove) the 2 bolts for the window clamps on the new unit before installing. 12 - make sure the new unit is not in the full up position before installing. 13 - install the new lift mechanism in the door and tighten the (3) 10 mm mounting nuts. 14 - connect the power plug into the new lift motor 15 - temporarily connect the rear door controller, turn on the ignition and slowly raise the new lift mechanism using the window up switch on the driver's door. 16 - when the lift is in the full up position, tighten the window glass clamps using the same access holes as when you removed the glass clamps. 17 - slowly cycle the window down and up to make sure it doesn't bind 18 - disconnect the read door controller and reverse the process for assembly 19 - make sure the rear door light socket and bulb are not trapped behind the plastic. A PDF document with pictures is available by sending a request to email@example.com - include "Buick Window Pictures" in the subject line. ___Edited 11/01/09____ Step 4 Improvement. After an hour of online research and three phone calls to different mechanics we came to the conclusion that the GMC "J" tool is worthless and a waste of $10. It is suppose to help remove the push bolts that attach the side panel however with a flat head screwdriver and some brute force you can pull the door panel loose from the door. Start in the bottom right corner slide the screwdriver along until you find the first of 7 plastic bolts once located place one hand on each side of the bolt and pull and it will snap off, do same with the other 7 and lift the panel upward to expose the interior of the door. ___Edited 04/09/11____ Step 17 Improvement One cause of binding is the cable not winding properly around the drum. To see whether that is the case, you may need to remove the lift mechanism, connect the power plug, carefully hold it (for instance by the motor), and cycle it. The problem can be fixed by slightly bending the end of the rail and/or the spring that is misfeeding the cable to the drum. (MORE)

taking the window out is easy. you push the inner lip of rubber over the opening towards the outside keep pushing out on the glass and popping the rubber through all the way around the wondow opening. get someone to help with the outside holding it still while you push and unlock the rubber lip. ins…tallation is a little tricky you need enough string to go all the way around the rubber in side of the seam. no thicker than 1/4". lube the string with non pumice hand cleaner. make sure that the strings cross a few feet on the bottom. set the rubber where it sitting in the groove on the lower part of the window. have your assitant push against the glass while you pull the string out. keep tapping the window as you do this. pulling the string out pops the rubber seal to where it is supposed to be. don't be a ninny. just pulling the string will not work if you do not pay attention and try to work the rubber into postition. good luck.

I just changed the left rear window regulator on a 1993 Corolla. Don't know how similar it is to a 1998. 1. Remove screw from door handle module. 2. Slide module toward the front of car and lift outward (It will be attached to the wire that controls the door opening. You could remove the plasti…c clip that attaches the module to the wire but mine looked old and brittle and didn't want to take a chance of breaking it.) 3. Remove the screws in the arm rest but don't try to pull arm rest off because it is glued to door panel. 4. Using flat bade, insert close to fasteners in door panel. Pop out every fastener until panel is loose. 5. Using short screw driver, remove screws that hold the window open/close button module in place. 6. Carefully lift and pull out door panel and move around so you can pull the door handle module and the open/close window module through the panel. 7. Remove the plastic film moisture barrier by carefully pulling from the metal door. Try to keep the mastic on the plastic because you will reseal with it during re-assembly. 8. You will see 4 golden screw tops in a somewhat square pattern that hold the regulator to the inside of the metal door. You will see the electrical connection at the bottom of the door that comes out and plugs into a receiver. 9. TEST: If you are not sure that the problem is a burned out motor on the regulator, disconnect the old regulator without removing it. Plug in the new regulator and, watching your fingers because the big crescent shaped gear moves, operated with the door switch to see if it works. Try to return the arm with the plastic button to its original position which should correspond to the window being down. ON MY NEW UNIT THE ELECTRICAL CONNECTOR WAS INCORRECT AND I HAD TO CUT OFF THE CONNECTOR ON THE OLD REGULATOR MOTOR CONNECTION AND ATTACH IT TO THE NEW ONE. SHOULD BE SOLDERED AND TAPED BUT GOOD WIRE NUTS TAPED IN PLACE WILL WORK. USE ELECTRICIAN'S TAPE. 10. Look at the new regulator. Locate the 4 square patterned threaded receivers to accept the 4 gold colored screws you will remove. Note the long arm on the new regulator with the plastic button. This button will fit into a groove on the bottom of the window. When reattached, the regulator moves an internal gear which moves the crescent shaped gear which causes the long arm with the plastic button to go up and down which causes the window to go up and down. 11. If not already done, disconnect the electrical connection to the old regulator. 12. Remove the 4 golden colored screws and be ready to support the window when you remove the last one. 13. When the window comes down, slide the plastic button out of the groove on either the left or right side of the groove (probably left side) and pull the old regulator out of the door. 14. Slide the new regulator into the door, slide the plastic button into the left side of the groove on the bottom of the window, and (though this is the most difficult step because you must lift the window and move the regulator up, down, and left and right) position until you see at least one of the threaded receptors in its correct position. Attach one of the golden screws. Now position the other receptors and the other three screws. Leave loose until all in place. Then tighten. 15. Make electrical connection for the new regulator. NOTE: TEST BEFORE YOU RE-ASSEMBLE DOOR AND SWITCHES. THE REGULATOR I RECEIVED HAD REVERSED POLARITY. WHEN I MOVED THE BUTTON TO RAISE THE WINDOW IT LOWERED AND CONVERSELY. HAD TO REMOVE THE PLUG, CUT OFF AND REVERSE THE WIRES (RED TO GREEN AND GREEN TO RED INSTEAD OF THE ORIGINAL OF RED TO RED, ETC.) 16. Reverse the steps from Step 7 and reassemble. (MORE)
6-21-08 Just had mine replaced at an auto glass dealer. They got regulator from Jeep dealer for $170 and installed it for another $55. Felt it was a fair price. 03-24-09 I bought a new regulator on EBay for $99.00. I replace it myself - it took me about 35 minutes to complete. 1)Take off door pane…l, remove the speaker and nylon covering 2) remove bolts holding the regulator and motor to door 3) remove metal pin (slides out) holding window to nylon plate 4) disconnect power cable from motor 5) slide old regulator module through large hold at top of door 5) Have some one hold the window in up position (or tape it up) 6) put new unit into door through same hole 7) attach power cable 7: bolt unit and motor to door 8) slide window down and reposition on nylon plate and replace metal pin to hold window to unit 8) replace nylon covering, speaker and door pannel. Note; after it is put back together if the door doesn't open from inside of car you accidently engaged the child proof lock This took me about 35 minuts, required no special tools and i am not a "mechanic" My local Jeep dealer wanted $307.05 to do this.

I replaced the window regulator in my 03 drivers side front and I found it to be quite easy.Before you start,its best to duct tape the window in the up position to keep it out of your way and to reduce the risk of glass breakage.First you need to remove the inside door panel.The screws are located a…round the panel and have little plastic plugs covering them up.They just pop open to allow access to the screws.There are two more screws located behind the door lever and one in the bottom of the door grab handle.You might have to clean dirt out of the grab handle to see it but its there.Once the screws are removed,you have to grab the panel and pull it off of the inside door skin.The panel has plastic tabs holding it in place and you need to pop them off.Dont worry,they pop back in just fine.Once you get the panel to move freely,you need to pull up on it to get the top out of the window sill.After its out of the sill,you need to unplug the power wire plug connected to the switch panel.Once you get the panel off you will see a clear plastic sheet covering the door.This is just sound proofing and once you pull the screws off for the metal door handle,this needs to be cut off with a razor blade.Be careful not to cut it up,your going to need to use it again.After all this,you should be able to see the regulator through a couple of access holes.The regulator has four screws holding it in place.Two on the top,and two on the bottom.The top two screws are located through a access hole on the top of the door skin.A flashlight will help to find these.Unscrew these two screws and then unscrew the bottom screws located on the bottom of the door skin.You should see the bottom screws on the outside of the panel,so there is no need to look through any holes to find these.Once the screws are removed the rest of the window regulator should just slide right out the big access hole.These regulators are cheaply made and when they go,they break apart,so dig around on the botoom of the inside door skin to pick up whats let of the original.[springs,cable,etc] Now all you need to do is reverse the process.The new one should go in the same way the old one came out.You might need to move the new regulator so it lines up in the top two screw holes by plugging in the power cord and rolling to window up.After the new regulator is in just put everything back the way you took it off.I used sillicone to seal the clear plastic soundproofing back on. After seeing the length of my post it looks like this would be a tough job but it really isn't.Im not a mechanic but if you can change plugs and wires on your car,this should be pretty easy for you.I hope someone finds this helpful.

its easy just take off the door panel, disconnect the wiring harness and take the screws out of the mount for the window motor and it comes rite out
its not impossible, but its not easy either. I did one 2 years ago and I just had another go on me. I am going to take it to an auto glass repair shop once I buy the regulator on line. They are a lot cheaper than repair shops.. It took me few hours even with the on line directions, and I am pretty …handy. You have to work in a tight space and its a pain.. if you can get the glass shop to put it in for less than $100, its money well spent. (MORE)
Hi All I have just replaced the electric window mechanism in the RR door of a 1998 Daewoo Nubira. You will need 1 x Phillips head screw driver -preferable with a small diameter shaft Remove the 4 plastic screws from the door panel Remove the plastic fitting on the door handle-Attention is re…quired here as damage can occur quite easily. There are 3 plastic clips that hold the door handle surround use a small flat blade screwdriver to gently loosen clips located centre of fitting towards the rear of vehicle and top and bottom about 5 cm in from the leading edge, Now remove the electric window switch with Phillips head screwdriver ,slide switch towards the rear of vehicle to remove, Un-plug switch cable. Now you can remove the door panel ,lift panel upwards from the rear. Now you will need to remove the 2 Phillips head screws that hold the door arm support bracket once removed you can gently remove the protective plastic you will see there are 7 x 10 mm nuts that hold the assembly on remove all of these nuts next step is to remove the 2 x Phillips head screws that hold the glass onto the electric window mechanism, I did this by drilling to 6 mm holes in the door panel as close to where the screws are located (as I could NOT lower the glass) and removed screws -use a large flat blade screwdriver to pry window assembly inside the door between door and mechanism at the top 2 nuts, it can now be removed by gently prying downwards -Good Luck Hope This Helps (MORE)
To replace a rear window regulator on 2005 CTS Cadillac remove the side protection panel of the car door then adjust the regulator.
I have an 02. Front drivers side, typical. Get the regulator from your parts house. Make sure it's the right part. There are several screws, but all you take out are three. These are the mounting bolts for the regulator assembly. You will have to dismount it, and from the window, itself. Best if don…e while in the "up" position. Keep it there(rubber grips of sort). Take out the old regualtor, and install the new one. Bolt everything back up. Worked for me. The shop wanted $240, and I did it for $46. Hope this will help. (MORE)
Please be more specific with your problem. Is the sprayhead stopped up with sediment? Does the wiper not work? What? There is no washer pump in the rear window. It is nothing more than a spray head that is connected by tubing to the same underhood washer pump that supplies the front windshield spray…ers. (MORE)
Hi. I've done this but it is not easy. What I did was to remove the inner cover of the brackets holding the canvas roof in place. Then undid all the bolts and loosened the roof catches. Then got a box cutter knife and carefully cut the stitching between the front and rear sections of the canvas roof… and pulled the back section off witht he plastic panel. I took it to an upholsterer who stitched in Marine grade clear plastic and put it all back together. I am a qualified auto engineer, but took my time. Overall around 6 hours. (MORE)

To replace the window regulator in a ford falcon depends on the model, however the process is fairly similar.. 1. Remove door trim (there should be some screws along the outside edges and behind the door handle). 2. Tape the door glass to the door or have someone hold it up as the next step will l…et it go.. 3. Remove the two bolts that attach the door glass to the regulator.. 4. Disconnect the power motor connector.. 5. Remove the 4 bolts that hold the regulator to the door.. 6. Remove the regulator and replace, perform all steps in reverse order. (MORE)

I just completed by replacement this past weekend and it was mucheasier than I thought it would. First remove the door panel, thereis a square head bolt in the hadn rest and one torx screw holdingthe handle cover on. There is also at least one torx screw holdingthe door panel on the edge. After the …screws are removed gently prythe door panel off the door being carful not to break any of theplastic tabs. Once off remove the door handle and remove all of thebolts around the metal panel in the door. Now drill through therivets holding the regulator to the metal panel, there are twolarge rivets and one small one. You will then be able to lossen theregulator from the window glass, unscrew the 3 screws fastening theregulator to the motor and remove the regulator. then install thenew regulator to the window glass and reinstall the regulator tothe motor. The 2 large rivets I replaced with 1/4 inch galvanizedbolts with lockwashers and nuts, I used 1 inch longs ones. Ireplace the small rivet holdin the regulator to the motor with asimilar sized rivet. Once the regulator is attached to the motorand panel you can reinstall the metal panel to the door with thebolts, reinstall the door handle and reinstall the plastic doorpanel to the door reinstalling the screws. For a fist timer with my 2006 fusion it took about an hour. (MORE)

u go to the place u bought it and they put a special super glue to repair
Take the door panel off, remove the old reg. Install the new one... If you don't know how to take the door panel off, best to stop there
It will need to be done by a shop specializing in convertible tops as the window has curtains that need to be glued to the top. I just had mine done last week and it was around 425 for glass or I could have had plastic ( which isn't that durable ) for 309. This is a common problem for sebrings as I …have seen many with bad rear windows and many with homemade windows using duct tape and plexiglass. (MORE)
That would be EXTREMELY unlikely that any rear window regulator would fit in the front window, same side or not.
No. In fact, the wires from the rear if connected to the front will fix a 250 problem!
It is easy to replace the window regulator or window clips on the rear window of a 2000 Grand Am. The clips simply snap right onto the rails inside that door that connect to the window.
If it worked before the regulator was replaced, something was done incorrectly. If it didn't work before the regulator was replaced, the electric motor, switch or wiring may be at fault.
