Keep in mind our kit only installs for a passenger side fix, although can improve the overall electrical integrity of the original circuit, noticed while rolling both windows down at the same time.

ok i installed my new ebay window motor this weekend using the shoebox website writeup. it was a bit of a pita and from start to finish took about 4 hours (although at least 30 mins of that was spent looking for various tools). i also had to go to the local hardware store and buy slightly longer screws because the ones provided with the kit were only like a hair length longer than the nut when installed and i didnt feel comfortable leaving it that way. all in all im glad i did it myself and saved several hundred $'s of labor costs. plus the next time i need to install one of these a few years from now it should be MUCH easier because the holes are already drilled into the door so all that needs to be done is unscrew the old one and pop in the new one. so i'd recommend anyone with an entire afternoon to kill and a bit of patience to try doing this yourself instead of taking it to a shop.

installed trixies fix on the passengers side, it def. helped....and is worth it.
but its a royal PITA to run the wires, you gotta feedem to the door, pull the pcm out to get thru the firewall......
took me about 2 hours......but like i said, worth it.
i just need to figure out why my brand new driver's side window motor is slow.....how do you adjust the window?

4 hours wow. But like you said you had to run to the hardware store. I hate when that happens. Next time it would be alot alot easier.

it's no too hard, took me like 2 hours and i've only done it the once (still haven't changed the pass. side yet lol) just find some good installation pics
now my problem is my window won't go up, only 6 month old window motor (autozone) so i'm thinkin its a bad switch or loose wire (hopefully) any suggestions?

I would check your slides/guides and lube as necessary; regulator arms could need some grease also. I have read several threads about the regulator arms being bent as another hidden culprit. I have also seen a couple of cracked switch housings causing a high resistance or no connection at times as well. You could pull the door panel, stick a volt meter on the motor, operate the switch and observe the reading while moving things around to see if you lose connection. (if you think it is a loose or bad connection.)
These windows just werent on GM's list of greatest accomplishments.

yeah the hardest part for me was them damn little nuts the new motor came with - trust me they're a bitch to find if ya drop em in the door!
does anyone have a schematic of where the window wires go to and come from? i'm thinkin about puttin some switches on the center console and just rewiring the whole shitty setup.. i just wanna get the old wires outta there if i do it
