    We have a sponser that sells the window kits you speak of. As far as I can tell they work well with little labor involved for the install. Do a search and you should find threads in detail on the subject. Or just hang out in the forums for a bit I'm sure someone will be along..

    from my personal experience with my car (and im fairly new here) is that the start stop is the motor on the way out. I bought the Doorman version from Autozone for 63 bucks after tax less than a week ago and changed it out myself. This was for the passenger side window. My drivers side window is fine.

    I also have the Autotrix passenger window fix kit that I had installed but pulled out once I fixed the motor. It will go back in I just have to find time to do it the right way.

    Lifetime warranty motors from the chain stores are remanufactured. Unless you get the sponsors fix, they will take a crap on you in less than a year (depending on much you use your windows).

    Best bet would be to find a non reman. and use the sponosors fix. Note: The non-reman motors are at least twice the price of those garbage lifetime warranty deals.

    Agree! I also believe this to be true with most electric motors for our cars and any other GM. I also lump alt's in with this too. Over the years I'm sorry to say but I've never had ANY luck with remanned garbage.. My younger brother went through 4 alts in one day before finally getting one that actually worked properly. The problem is the internal parts are'nt all replaced in remand sh&t.

    I was once a rebuilder for an automotive electrical Co. and their policy was, "we don't make money on motors/alts that have all new parts".. Remans can be full of old crap that has been "tested" for proper operation. Problem is some of these shops hire non-techs and hense you have people rebulding sh&t whom have no clue what they are looking @ on test equiptment. If one does'nt understand how a trio tests good, or a stater, a rotor, or diode's they have no busness rebuilding imho. Same goes for electric motors. If one can't use a simple growler to test an armature then they should get off the rebuild bench imho. Then to top it all off in the cases where internal parts need replaced they get replaced with ho-chi-min parts that sometimes are junk right off the shelve. Long story short, buy new or be prepared to do the job again in a short while.imho
