    Help on changing out the window motor on an 2002 Z28. Does anyone have any knowledge or have done this yourself? I need to replace this on the drivers side. It's looking to be a little difficult....

    Any help would be great...
    Thanks.

    It is very difficult. Only thing worse was a heater core in a 5.0 mustang. Plenty of info here on this site. Do a search.

    What was very difficult about it?

    I linked a write up above already, no need to search

    Sadly now demodded :(

    Yeah, it's pretty much a piece 'o cake if you know your way around a screwdriver and socket set.

    All in all, even though I could've done it myself, me being old, fat, lazy and able to pay someone else to do it that's what I did.

    I also did the separate power leads to the motors wiring harness.

    i followed this


    http://shbox.com/page/windowmotor.html

    and it turned out fine... just have to have a friend or a sturdy way of supporting your glass...

    take your time...

    the hardest part to be honest was putting the new motor in because you physically cant see what you're doing.. i had to use nails to line up the motor with the holes while i screwed in other holes so it lined up right...

    other than that it went fine.. the pannel popped back on easier than it came off surprisingly.. i was done in nearly 45 mins and i've never done it before..

    i might breakdown and do my passenger side window in spring.. its getting lazy also.

    its horrible!!!!! i had to take out the motor and the scissor assy cause you couldnt see where to drill the rivets out for the motor itself. the rivits for the scissor assy are huge but luckily my buddy had them at his shop. i did one on my moms 81 berlinetta a long time agi and this one was no less of a biotch. to those who said it was easy or quick please tell me how. i got cut up and bled everywhere. i wont even begin to tell you how fun it was to do the plugs and wires.

    i didnt mess witht he scissor assembly at all... i used the pics in that site i posted above and guestimated where the rivots were, drilled the holes carefully, and boom there were the rivots..... then i drilled them out... had my friend hold the glass so it wouldnt fall in the door and shatter and then i'd really have a mess...

    next major part was holding the new motor in position, lining up the gears, and screwing it down... it wasnt easy but it wasnt completely impossible...

    taking the speaker out helped quite a bit too if i remember right

    You can stick your hand in and feel the rivets. its not THAT hard to drill the holes.

    We have the holes we drilled circled in red on step 8 in our instructions. You could look at the picture and copy them almost.

    It REALLY is not that hard. Keep in mind, I did the research on the window fix kit so that I did NOT have to change the motor. I was really not looking forward to it.

    If you have put headers on or changed an intake manifold this is not a big deal.

    I took this route when it was time to replace mine on the Camaro. For all of the same above stated reasons.
