TRY CALLING AN AUTO PARTS STORE AND GIVE THEM ALL THE INFO. ABOUT YOUR CAR AND THEY CAN TELL YOU WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW. ALSO MOST AUTO PART STORES HAVE WEB SITES THAT YOU CAN GO TO AND FIND YOUR ANSWER. I JUST CHANGED MINE IN MY 95 FIREBIRD AND GOT IT FOR ABOUT 45.00 BUCKS FROM O'REILLY AUTO PARTS. I'LL SEND YOU THE LINKS FOR IT AND OTHER SITES THAT MIGHT HELP. . JEAN

The only way is to look at it. What they are asking you is whether or not the window motor has ever been replaced or not. If you've owned the car since new or at least pretty new and you've never replaced the window motors then they are OE. The way to tell by looking at them is if they are riveted in, then they are OE. At the factory the used rivets to save time on assembly rather than using bolts. Obviously then if the window motor is bolted in then it is not OE.

A Dodge Durango window motor can be ordered from any auto parts store. The prices for the window motors will vary depending on the year of the Durango.

The gears in your headlight motor are actually grinding. My 2000 firebird did that. I just replaced the headlight motor. You can get replacement motors at pretty much any autopart store for around $50.00.

If your talking the spring on a power window it helps raise the window when you activate the power window so it takes some stress off the motor.

Change the motor. These cars are notorious for this.

As long as they are installed safely, it is quite safe to use a brushless motor controller on a window. These motors have been in production since 1942 while brushed motors have been available since 1886.

The motor is mounted with rivets, you must drill out the rivets. The bolt must be short enough so that the window arms will not touch, this will cause the window to not go up or down all the way.

The window motor is attached to the window regulator by screws. After removing the door trim you must detach the regulator from the door by drilling-out four rivits. Then remove the screws from the old motor and install the new motor. Re-attach the regulator with bolts and put the trim back on the door.

The motors were installed with rivets at the factory. You need to use a drill and drill out the rivets to remove the motor. The replacement motors come with screws and bolts to replace the rivets.

trans ams and firebirds have always had weak electric motors for their windows and locks it may be a bad ground or the motor itself could be whipped or the other reason could be the rubber seal is too thick around the window so it slows it down. It's overheating because its burned out (the window motor). It needs to be replaced.

Don't replace the headlight motors, you'll only be wasting your money. Instead, just rebuild them by buying the headlight motor rebuild kit. Check out these links. http://www.bfranker.badz28.com/headlightfix/ http://www.rodneydickman.com/index.html

Try lubricating window driveline and if no go, replace motor if all other parts are in good shape. more than likely it is the motor its self, If the motor moves it then stops then moves a little more than stops it is the motor.

User Avatar

Depending on the year, 92 through 97. Yes! The motor is riveted to the regulator. You must remove as a unit, drill a hole in regulator arm and insert a bolt and nut to keep from springing back. Then drill out rivets to motor replace motor with bolts and remove bolt in regulator arm.

There are a few "power motors" on a Windstar. Guessing the question might be referring to the window motor, see 'Related Questions" below for specifics about those...

User Avatar

Luckily these window motors are widely available from any auto parts supply retailer.RockAuto.com and Autozone have motors ranging from $38-100.Be sure to review the "Related Questions" for much more about Windstar power windows
