Window Motor replacement

Post by scstanger on Sun Aug 29, 2010 6:24 pm

Hey gang,
I have yet another issue with my car. Yesterday the window went down and will not come back up! I'm in the process of replacing the window motor but I keep getting to the point where I'm told to "ensure that the regulator arm is in a fixed position to prevent counterbalance spring unwinding." How do I do this? I need help quickly!!! Thanks everybody!

UPDATE: You don't need to secure the regulator arm if you don't remove the window. I'll post more updates as I replace the motor this evening. Just FYI!!!!!

Well I'm working with no A/C during one of the hottest SC summers so mine stay down! With the motor in I couldn't get the window up and now with it out I can't get it to stay down. Can't wait to put this issue behind me!

Don't take this wrong, but I couldn't help but chuckling when I saw you made the next post the following day. I guess we don't do things "quickly" around here, lol.

Yeah no one responded yesterday or this morning so I figured that no one knew how to help. Then I had to drive to drop off the little guy to school and drive to work with my door taken apart!!! Not good! I bought and installed the new motor today and it still doesn't work. I'm thinking that it's the switch and will hopefully get one tomorrow. I'll post another update then. Damn convertibles and the big cluster switches!

Ok well apparently my car has had some devine intervention or something because the window has mysteriously started working again shrug I have returned the motor and got my money back...for now until it quits working again. Not sure what happened. I did take the motor apart yesterday to see if the bushings were worn out and they were fine. My neighbor owns a shop and said that sometimes if they get too hot they'll freeze and tapping on them will release them. Not sure what worked so I'm of no help to anyone unless you need to know how to get the motor out. Brad, it's really not that bad of a fix. $50 and an hour and you'd have yours working again. I'm working on the black leather for mine but I still feel your pain with the heat and the black top with no a/c. It was 104* here for over a week this summer, crazy hot. The new school that my son attends has the worst pick up/drop off system where you have to start a line about a mile away from the school and sit on the side of the road with your car running to pick up your child because every few seconds the line moves a car length. Every child in the school is released at the same time and picked up from the same area. It's about a hour wait to get your kid as they do not allow parents to walk up and get them anymore so I looked like the imbominable snowman out there just dying in the sun! I kept the top up to offer shade but no breeze! rant

Why dont you just change it with the electric one?anyway.The window motor is inside the door frame of your vehicle. To replace the motor, you must remove the door panel. Having the necessary tools should be your main concern. They will save you time and make the job much easier. Some regulator/motor assemblies are fastened to the door frame with rivets. For this, you will need an electric drill, drift punch and hammer to remove them.
