    You can buy a lifetime warranted window motor from Auto Zone for $60-$70 (they are usually in stock). The motor is made by Siemens, a pretty decent electronics company.

    Follow these instructions to install:

    Being careful, you should be able to complete the job in about 1-1.5 hours.

    Or, you can go to the dealer and pay about $300.

    luckily i still have a limited warranty on my camaro so i had BOTH power window motors replaced at the chevy dealership. they said that it would have cost me about $970 but I only had to pay the $50 deductable! i dont understand why it would cost almost a grand to replace both window motors....?

    Just bought mine this Saturday at Auto Zone. It was $54.99 with a lifetime warranty. Go on to the general help section of this board and there are step by step instructions on how to "do it yourself". Only took my old man a little while to get it done. He said the hardest part was lining it back up.

    it's not called the "stealership" for nothing.
