    HaS This Happend To YOU?

    The window on my driver side got stuck. So i sent it to get fixed, they said they had to replace the motor.
    Not even 2 weeks later my passanger widow got stuck too. could it be something else? or if it is, is it easy to replace?
    A friend thinks the motor just got outta line or somthing.
    ..... anyone?

    The motors suck. Plain and simple.

    Lots of people have replaced theirs. Sometimes both, sometimes one.
    So far (34,500 miles) I have been lucky. But the passenger side window isn't the fastest in the world anymore.

    Is it making any noise at all, with either door switch? When my passenger side motor died wouldn't work with either switch - then after replacement worked only with the passenger switch. Replaced the dual switch on the drivers side panel and worked fine. If you're going to keep the car for a while you need to learn how to replace the motors yourself, not hard at all and lot's of links on how to do it.

    the drivers side works fine now. but the passenger side doesnt. it makes a clicking sound when i try to put it down. sumtimes it moves like 1/4 inch. then it just doesnt move at all

    These window motors are hell to replace! When my buddy and I finally got mine out when we popped the rivets out on the spring tensior to get the motor off of it it snapped back and almost cut my fingers finger off!!! ahhhhhh. needless to say 7 stitches and two days later we finally got it working again!

    hmmm never had a problem. What spring tensior?


    Hold the window up, drill out rivets, motor falls off, unplug it and plug in new motor, screw motor into place, and youre done
