    Talking Aftermarket Window Motor vs. Stock -Pics

    Since there's been a lot of threads lately regarding the crappy power window motors supplied by the General for our cars I thought I'd post some pics comparing aftermarket motor with stocker:




    You can see the crappy stock motor on the top of the pics - housing is from stamped sheet metal that is sort of riveted together. Replacement motor is on bottom of pics - Siemens P/N 42014 Lifetime Warranty Window Lift Motor available @ Autozone for $54.99/ea. You can see that the housing is actually a very nice aluminum casting

    The bracket shown in the pics comes with the motors but is not needed for installation.




    These are just closeups of the replacement motor. I iknow I was a little dissappointed when I saw 'Korea' stamped on the motor instead of USA, but they function beautifully and have a better warranty then Hyundai!

    Motors come as seen with bracket (not used) and bolts/nuts/lock washers to replace the rivets that attached the old motor. Entire motor swap out took 1 hr./door from start to finish. After replacement my windows go up & down faster than they did when the car was new!

    Well then, I guess when your 'quality' GM window motors give out - you can go and pay $120+/ea. for another set of 'Genuine GM Window Motors' with NO WARRANTY which, BTW, are made in Mexico as the label on the motor clearly states

    Not if you do the motor install as I described in the thread on LS1Tech. To use the bracket you would have to go to all the trouble of tearing out the entire inner window mechanism which would entail drilling out the large rivets that hold the main bracketry into the door instead of just drilling out the (3) small rivets that hold the motor to the mechanism.

    where is your thread. My window just went out...motor makes noise but doesn't go down. Well it was going down about 1" and then just noise. It will go up all the way, thank GOD!

    I will look at autozone or advance for the siemens part but would like to see how you did yours....Thanks.
