I really long for the days of roll up and down manual windows! The
biggest and most expensive issues I had with my old Crown Vic was
constant window regulator failures. Now it seems my Impala is following
the Crown Vics footsteps.
Anyhow, it was not too bad of a job. I have the factory service manual,
and it took almost 3 three hours to get the regulator out, and less
than a half hour to get the new one in and back together. I can
probably do it again in an hour. I am sure the other side window will
fail in a few days just like it did on my Crown Vic.
What is really sad is that the regulator failed due to a cracked nylon
piece that holds the cable to the motor assembly. The new regulator (at
$239) has the same design. A failure due to use of plastic and cost
Have a nice day,
