    Window Motor

    Which part do I need to buy? I have always had the shop do it so I have never bought the parts directly. I am doing it myself this time cause it is cheaper and just wanted to know which parts to buy off ebay. Thanks. It's my passenger side window motor.

    Yes that one will work....

    This one is $72, but... Is available at VatoZone.... and has a limited lifetime warranty.

    Eh, they usually last me around 2 years, I dont drive a lot and rarely take off the t-tops or put down the windows (It's hot as shit where I live) so I am going with the cheapo. Thanks!

    I replaced my Drivers side motor about 6 momths ago and just put a auto trix kit on my pass side. Now the pass side is faster than the drive side and it would not even roll up all the way before the kit. The kit takes some time but works great and only $29.00

    They should be cake if they've already been done before. I think I did three motors in my z28 the first one took probably about 2hours second probably an hour the thrird was about 20min.

    Yeah but I still failed a little... I forgot to hook back up the little light that goes over the window and lock switch.

    +1 for AutoTrix kit. It fixes the inherent voltage problem with the window motors. In my opinion, it's a lot cheaper/easier than replacing a window motor every couple years. Plus, your windows go down faster.

    There's no way you had a window motor replaced for $25

    I was able to do my driver side with no problem. You should be able to do it on your own without any special tools
