My sister's 99 Elantra driver's side window has a problem going
up and down. Upon removing the trim and getting the regulator out, it
seems that the metal wire is all mangled up in the pulley. I was able
to get the motor off and that is still working.
My problem is getting the wire off of the rail. Do you have to
have someone holding the glass while you loosen the two screws on the
bottom of the glass which is riding on the rail or do you have to do
something else to get it off? Can I order just the wire and pulley or
do I have to get a motor as well? Any help would be greatly
A new regulator assembly comes with the rail and the sliding block as
well as the wire, cable and pulley in an assembly.
The motor is seperate and can easily be removed from the old assembly by
taking off the bolts holding it in place.
When mine went bad I took the cable and tied the window up with it by
putting it under one of the bolts until I had a chance to get to the
dealer for a new assembly.
It was relatively easy to take the old one out and reinstall the new
The Hyundai service website has instructions for this procedure if I
... Graduate, Yoda school of English, I am.
Thanks for the info. After I posted the question I started
looking around for what the assembly looks like on ebay and figured
that it probably is best to order a new one than to try to fix the
existing one. I think pulling everything off the door takes more time
than replacing the part.
