2 window regulators for the same door fail within 4 months.
Thats It. Since its driver window, i can use a crank and retain the automatic windows all around

Shopping list?
-1 Manual regulator
-1 crank
I highly encourage people to do this also. Its great to know the most used window (in my car anyways) will never fail again!
just need to find a tan crank now...

i was kidding about ABS. its not working but i plan on fixing it, its useful and i recognize it.
I wouldnt have butchered any other window then the driver door, since i can access it by hand. Its surprisingly cool to be able to open the other windows from the driver's seat electronically

In europe, its common to have electric windows only on the front and cranks on the rear, since they dont get opened as often as the fronts.

Your ABS problem might just be a wheel sensor. Scan your codes and the problem should come up.
