    Go to Parts store and get the Lifetime warranty one. It's what i got just make sure window is up before you try to take out the motor.

    You should check out the new GM Hightech performance mag. They just replaced some on their Formula. They picked up both regulators and motors for around $317.00.

    motor replacement is some what easy..... unfortunetly you need to drill holes through the fiber panels. then drill away the rivets holding the motor. rats i cant think of the site i used to show location of the holes you drill. ive done both sides since owning my 98' TA

    Ive done many of them, but you will need to drill out the rivets that hold them in place, but be careful the assembly is under springed tension and will knock the shit out of your hand or arm if you arent paying attention. BTW, I always use a very large rivet gun and rivets when I reinstall them instead of the bolts that come with the motor it doesnt really matter either way I just prefer to rivet them.
