    hate to say it, but Autozone, $50 and a lifetime warrantee, works great.

    perfect... that's easy. There are few little details that I have to clean up before the T/A is ready for the summer season

    Well have a bundle kit that comes with motors.

    You can find it here:

    Otherwise I'd recommend Amazon. The only benefit for getting them from Autozone is if you get the lifetime warranty. Without our kits you'll need it LOL!

    I'd go with the window fix, if you don't go for the package.

    I've gone through 3 of those shit remanufactured motors.

    The only thing I've found to make them last, roll 1 window up or down at a time while the car is running. Before I learned that, I was replacing the driver's side annually.

    my passanger window takes some beating to get it down lol. After i get it all the way down itll roll all the way back up no problem. Should i get the fix or the motor? My driver side window rolls down fine but it rolls up very slow then itll stop about 2 inches from the top, then you wait a minute and roll it up and it will go another inch. Its a slow process unless i pull it up as im hitting the button.

    for me, I would only get the 34.99 passenger window fix, and buy the new motors at a local store where it would be easy to follow up on a warrantee claim, JUST in case.

    I like advance auto's parts more than autozone. Most are better quality.

    I have found that if you take the panel off periodically and clean and re lube the tracks, it can greatly extend the life of the motor.

    Mine did that for a week before the motor died. Ended up replacing both motors and picking up the kit from autotrix.net. No problems since, and they actually roll up and down at the same speed.
