I'm thinking I'm going to have to take this to a mechanic, but figured I'd
check here first. The passenger side window mechanism seems to have broken,
leaving the window in the down position. I took the door trim off, looked
inside, and I see a couple of cables dangling around. They aren't broke,
but they look like they should have been wrapped around some pulleys or
something else to hold them in place, but aren't anymore. The window moves
up and down freely, but I'm sure that the cabling isn't right. Any ideas on
what to do with this? It doesn't look like the door can be taken apart any
further, so I don't really know where to go from here.
my drivers side did the same thing, these cars use a cable and pulley
style regulator to raise and lower the window. when the cables come
off, the regulator is worn out and in need of replacement. mine cost
me about $70.00. and i installed it myself, it wasnt to big of a
deal, but i am somewhat mechanically inclined...
I am too, but maybe not as much as I need to be ;-) How far apart did you
have to take the door? I took off the door trim, and the plastic water
barrier, and could see a bit of what was inside, but didn't see a way to get
in to actually get at the mechanics. Is there a fixed number of times the
cables have to wrap around certain things, etc? Thanks for your help, I
the regulator is attached to the inside of the door by bolts that you
remove from the outside, if i remember correctly there is one plastic
snap in clip, i think in the center at the top, and then 2 bolts that
attach the reg to the glass, you have to lower the glass, and look
through the hole to see them, as far as re-wrapping cables around
pulleys, i dont really think that you can do that, you just have to
buy a new reg, and it comes with pulleys, cables and everything,
ready to install and attach to door and glass...it really isnt a very
hard job at all, i have a book, but never even had to open it, hope
