    if its the first time the window motor has ever been changed out you will need a drill if not just some wrenches and sockets will do the trick also do a seach on this forum it will give you a walk through

    It sucks. Drill, rivets/rivet gun and a friend to hold the window is what I needed in addition to the motor/regulator....

    Its not that hard. Read up about our window fix kits and make sure this is the last time you replace the motor for a while. We have before and after videos listed for the kit.

    You can find instructions for installing a new motor on our website also.

    All links are in my sig.

    you won't need rivots and a gun. just drill out the rivots on the old motor and replace them with nuts and bolts. It will help if you can find a friend with small hands and forearms. I followed the write up, I think it was on installuniverisity.com. It was fairly easy. Might as well do both sides at once, the second side was much easier once I learned on the first

    If you use the rivets you will need a special rivet tool. They are bigger than what you can get at a hardware store.

    Rivets actually make it quicker and easier and you never have to worry about a rivet backing out. I have a friend who works in a body shop so I just borrowed it....
