Power window motors

This is a discussion on Power window motors within the General Help forums, part of the LSx Technical Help Section category; I have been going through these motors every year. Anyone else having this problem...

    Are you guys doing these motor replacements by yourself?
    I had the door apart and could not feasibly see a way to get the motor back there and hold it in place while bolting back up. So I put the damn door back together and took it too a shop. My passenger side is now going and I want to do this myself. Am I gonna need a buddies help?

    I did mine myself. Might make things a lil easier with a buddy but is easy too do alone. I got mine from chinazone with the whole lifetime warranty deal and so far so good.

    You can do it - to get the motor back there just remove the speaker.

    It is pretty easy. I drilled out the old rivets(Yes I drilled through the fiberglass to get to the rivet), slid the new one into place figured that I couldn't get a rivet gun back in there and just used bolts and locknuts on the existing holes. took about 1.5 to 2 hrs.

    Whats the story with the motor mod that makes it roll up faster? Something about doing away with a safety on the motor?
