    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.

    Re: DeVille Window Regulator/Motor Repair - HOWTO pdf

    my right rear (passenger side) window fell. My son attempted to open panels. He got the outer panel off successfully but is concerned about the wiring connection. He says it "looks" like he would have to cut wires and is not willing to do that. Can you help?

    Re: 2000 Deville Window Regulator Fix

    Thanks ELI ICE. Borderline genius. Now somebody needs to sell a kit online containing 2 cotter pins for $19.95. Seriously, luckily I had the Gorilla black duct tape in the "03 DES yes DES for the automatic window drop 40 minutes from home in a balmy 88 degrees. So keep the duct tape in the trunk if you have any plastic regulators in play.

    Re: 2000 Deville Window Regulator Fix

    Im attempting the cotter pin fix but Im a bit confused, okay for one when I got my regulator out I realized that the top wheel of the pulley system the wire isant overtop of it as it should be and its way to tight to pull it over the pulley, other than that my regulator looks fine but where do I put the cotter pins exactly? like in the imagine it looks like they are on the beed but then it looks like they are on the part of the regulator that goes up and down.. can someone please explain in detail?

    Re: 2000 Deville Window Regulator Fix

    I just fixed my Driver side window with the cotter pin method. Working so far. Also had to remove the cable gearbox the motor is mounted on to re-string the cable that had come off the spool inside the gearbox. I drilled out the rivets holding the gearbox to the frame, then replaced the rivets with 10-32 screw and nut. (only replaced 3 of the 4- the 4th screw interfered with the motor mounting flush to the frame.
    THANKS TO ALL FOR THEN INFO ON DOOR PANEL REMOVAL(Lowcola) AND COTTER PIN REPAIR! Easy to follow and such complete information.

    Re: 2000 Deville Window Regulator Fix

    My damn driver side regulator popped for the FOURTH time in 3 years, so I did the cotter pin repair. Other than a little play, it seems to be working fine and should actually be stronger than the stupid plastic piece GM decided to use for a 60K car.

    Now, for about 30 cents I can fix this problem in the future

    Thanks again

    I just fixed the regulator on my 2002 Deville using the Cotter Pin trick. Except I didn't have any cotter pins handy so I made some out of #10 solid copper wire. Seems to be a very stable fix. Thanks again to all in this forum. Great ideas that save me lots of money and time.
