    This is what I'm going to do when the weather is nice in a few days ! And like everyone is asking, is there a specific size?

    Re: DeVille Window Regulator/Motor Repair - HOWTO pdf

    Hi,

    I have an 01 Deville and the rear passenger door's window stopped moving up. But, I could hear the motor. Being I live in New York City, I need to park on the street. Plus, it has been raining, So, I took the inside door penal off and I raised the window and wedged cardboard tightly to keep it upright, this way the car is somewhat safer.

    I have been seeing the average price for the regulator for $80+, I went to get prices at Auto Zone, etc; and the prices were all about the same.

    Then, I look on ebay and found one for about $42 with free UPS shipping, the seller has sold about 72 of these and has 99.9% positive feedback.

    Could anyone tell me if this is the right part and if it makes sense to purchase it. I'm working against the clock. Because, this problem needs to be addressed quickly. It should cost about $40 to have it installed, if I decide to have it done right.

    But, before I make a purchase, I need some advice on this part that is on the link below, I will be very thankful for your help and advice.

    I had this problem and didn't replace anything but the metal wire that moved the regulator easy and cheap fix.

    Re: 2000 Deville Window Regulator Fix

    I am replacing to regulators next week with ones I bought a while ago, I was wondering, is there any reason I couldn't put the cotter pins in the new regulators as I install them, in case the plastic factory piece in the new regulator fails in the future?

    I was not asking you all that, I was asking if this was the right part.

    Thanks, you are correct, it is the right part as i double checked it, I ordered it Tuesday and it came the next day with free shipping. So, this should not be a problem. Thanks again.

    Update:

    Well, everything turned out great. I took the Caddy over to the local shop and they installed the regulator for $47. So, that was $40 for the brand new rear passenger window regulator and $47 to install, making it a grand total of $87 and about 45 minutes wait time (I brought a book to read). I think I got off pretty easy, as everything is so expensive in New York. The regulator works like a charm.

    Thanks for all your advice.

    Re: 2000 Deville Window Regulator Fix

    I don't think that would give you the results you are looking for.
    your two options are do the cotter pin repair on your broken regulator or just install the new regulator as is.
    I did the cotter pin fix on my LR door. I drilled where the plastic broke and put the cotter pin through the hole. I did not do the cotter pin on the top and bottom, the bottom plastic was fully intact, I only add the cotter pin to the top (that gets the most stress from rolling window up). Just did this fix today...my first one, hopefully it lasts.

    Re: 2000 Deville Window Regulator Fix

    I was feeling very happy that I did not have the window regulator issues that most seem to have with their Caddys and bingo it happened today. I repaired my passenger side window regulator using this cotter pin fix, I used 5/32" x 2'' cotter pins and washers also, as in the pics earlier in the thread. Its important to bend the cotter pins tight to the rail as possible, I used a screwdriver to push up on the cotter pins from underneath as you are bending it. This will help reduce play in the window travel. Also for ease of putting the door panel back on I made sure both steel spring clips for the arm rest area were on the door rather than the panel, this way you just have to line up the locating pins of the door panel with the holes in the door and push it on. Also you will need a T-20 torx screwdriver to remove 2 clips that help to hold the water shield in place, this was not mentioned earlier.

    Re: 2000 Deville Window Regulator Fix

    Hello everyone. I found these forums in seeking a remedy for quite probably the same issues. It may have been mentioned in the other thread, but has anyone tried combining the cotter pins with a little epoxy in maybe trying to make the pins more stable?

    I kinda dread taking the door apart, but I really almost don't have a choice. Really strapped finacially, so I think I will have to try my attempt at a self repair here. My driver's front door window gave a loud "pop" one day. About the next time I used the car, heard a similar but not quite so loud pop while adjusting the window. When I rolled it completely down, it fails to move at all anymore.

    Thanks so much for all the info here. Hope I am able to use it successfully.

    2004 Deville base
    Driver's window won't roll up.

    Hello all. New to the forumsas probably the same has occurred in my 2004 base Deville. Like some others here, I am just havine a heck of a time getting the driver's door liner off. That thing is just achored to the middle area of the door.

    You guys sure the 2004 is the same. Just don't know what to do.

    Re: 2000 Deville Window Regulator Fix

    I just repaired the passenger side front window on my 01 Deville. I had planned on using the cotter pins, but when I got it all ripped apart, I noticed that there are 2 sets of metal 'fingers' which are encased in the plastic piece that seems to always break. I would imaging that these 'fingers' are what holds the plastic to the steel regulator. Parts of the plastic on mine was completely broken away, exposng the metal fingers which are part of the stamping of the regulator assembly. With the cable in place, I squeezed the fingers together with pliers (on both the up and down side) and it now works like new. Did not even need the cotter pins. I should have stopped to take a picture of what I'm talking about, but I didn't think about it until I had it all back together.
