Easy! 1) Buy the Saturn repair book at any an auto store. That will show you the steps to taking the door trim and panelliung off. 2) Look on Ebay for a used Saturn door regulator. This may take a while since there is not always a used regulator being auctioned. orBuy a new replacement regulator on Ebay or online.3) Install it yourself from the instructions in the satrun repair manual. or Get a friend to do it and buy them beer and pizza.

This should cost no more than $100 (including the booze), and you could get one used for maybe $40 with shipping.

Heck, I'll come fix it for a bottle of Makers Mark.

No they are not. They are available separately. The motor is available from most parts houses...the regulator is dealer only!!!

Only if you change out the entire regulator. The power regulator unit is pitched a little different due to the power motor components.

The cables are not adjustable. The regulator is only serviced as an assembly.

Yes. There is a motor for each power window in a car. It's inside the door of course, attached directly to the window regulator mechanism.

can probably raise the window/regulator by hand if you can remove the window motor from the regulator
