    Manual windows

    After replying to another thread here about swapping windows, a strange
    idea came into my head. Would it be possible to swap out the crappy power
    window setup in my '00 formula with manual windows? I didn't think they
    made manuals for the gen 4's. Anyone have firebirds/camaros with manual
    windows 00 and up?

    Much easier and cheaper to just replace the window motor.

    Yes- I had a 98 Camaro I ordered from the factory with manual windows. Strange thing about these cars is the regulator is the same whether it's power or manual. Just swap in the manual crank in place of the motor. Not sure if it saves weight or not-but that was what I liked to tell people. Got tired of the difficulty of dealing with rolling down the passenger window, and people making fun of it, so when I got my '02 I got power. I can get a new motor for $40 (where I work I can get stuff at cost) so for me fixing it is no big deal. Of course if you are truly a hardcore dragracer the seatbelt window raiser-delete the window mechanism will save some pounds. Not very practical though.
