Definitely the most fun I have had fixing my car

to start it off

mmmm screwdriver through the crack of my finger

well first I got off my door panel

I first took out the regulator because I saw that the cable had loosened and it had fallen off of the pulley..... and then when I took out the whole unit I could see that the cable had actually frayed and almost snapped......


So the old and the new joined together in harmony..... this is before i removed the old motor and transplanted it onto the new one.

Once I got the regulator all set to go and bolted in, I could not get the window onto the clamps...... so I took out my window and tried to scrap this crap off....

Now for the good part..... once I got the window all shaved and back into the door, I clamped it up to the regulator. Apparently I clamped it too hard and it shattered once I tried to move the window up.....


And thank someone, I had a 94 Jetta parts car sitting in my backyard with the same window
So I was saved and was able to put in the new window and have everything working..... So thanks to German Auto Parts and my parts car i was able to fix my non working passenger window for $82


the only downfall is all the glass in my door that I still have to clean out tomorrow and the fact that my hands are all sliced up from cleaning all the glass and from my damn screwdriver

Re: Window Regulator Fun (Cusker)

BUMP to help those who are needing to change their regulators..... anyone have an idea how to change a front regulator if the window is stuck up?
