    Re: Window problems!!

    Probably not a motor. It will need a regulator, unless the cable is in good enough condition to restring over the pulleys. and the pulleys aren't broken, and you have enough patience.

    I had the same problem. New regulator is over $500 from GM, and real hard to find from the usual sources. I find them on eb_y, but the quality isn't great. One guy sells "new" but they seem to last only about a year or so. He did warranty my first one, and I'm on that second one now, and have had to restring the cable twice now.
    Not a real good bit of designing there...
