    Thanks for all the help guys. I was able to repair mine using epoxy. If it fails again I will do the sheet metal trick. It sounds way more stable.

    Great Instructions! Repaired in less than an hour and saved myself about $360(Repair shop quoted $561 to replace. The part was $414 alone!) by ordering through Window World!

    Thank You for putting such a good step by step on replacing the regulator assy. The dealer wanted $550.00. I got one from Window Motor World for $150.00 and it took 1½hrs to do the job myself with your pdf.
    THANKS AGAIN!!!

    Re: DeVille Window Regulator/Motor Repair - HOWTO pdf

    Let me add my thank you.
    Your PDF gave me the courage to do-it-myself. I paid about $110.00 for two regulators online. One from Partstrain, Autopartswarehouse. I must have save $600.00 based on what I have read here.
    I had two regulators go out within two weeks.
    Thanks

    Re: DeVille Window Regulator/Motor Repair - HOWTO pdf

    I managed to find a regulator online for a total of 55.00 including the shipping and was able to install i less than one hour. The .pdf file located in the forum was very helpful, thank you. The dealer wanted 670.00 to replace the regulator, which I feel is a total rip-off.

    Re: 2000 Deville Window Regulator Fix

    This was a good recommendation and it got me thinking. I ended up using a couple of cotter pins. Take a look.....

    Re: DeVille Window Regulator/Motor Repair - HOWTO pdf

    I have had all of my windows break doing the same thing, I have fixed my windows by making the little metal straps to go around the steel ball but I do suggest making sure that the only thing that touches this piece is the metal ball, as mine wore through the cable and snapped it. Does anyone have an easy fix for the cable??

    Re: DeVille Window Regulator/Motor Repair - HOWTO pdf

    Ok the cable is fixable, I took mine apart, not successfully though I broke the plastic housing where the motor mounts to, I also didnt fix it because my cable was stuck inside the housing and it was a tangled mess, but if anyone is starting to get frayed cables go ahead and take the time to very carefully pull the housing apart and take note of how the cables work because both ends attach to the wheel that is on the inside of the housing, you just have to pay attention to which cable is on which side and how many times it goes around the wheel. The cable and the cable ties are available at home depot for about $10.00, it looks easy enough, 1 cable, 1 wheel. If you can change a tire, you can fix the regulator!!
