Hey guys, I have a 99 Z71 and the window regulator finally popped yesterday.
I have a cheapie Haynes manual and sometimes you get what you pay for. Can
it really be that easy to change the window regulator? I pulled the door
panel to see what it looked like and it does seem pretty simple. The
problem is, the cable is all slack and there's no way to figure out the
routing without some kind of picture. Does the new regulator (motor
included) come with the cable all connected, so its a simple bolt in? Is
there any adjustment to do, or is it connected to work when its installed?
You guys have been a bunch of help in the past. Thanks for your input in
1.. Raise the window glass. If the window motor is inoperable, remove the
glass window to gain access to the window motor retaining screws. Refer to
Window Replacement - Front Door .
2.. Remove the door trim panel. Refer to Trim Panel Replacement - Door .
3.. Remove the water deflector. Refer to Water Deflector Replacement -
4.. Remove the door speaker. Refer to Speaker Replacement in
5.. Support the glass.
6.. Disconnect the wiring harness from the window regulator motor.
7.. Remove the 3 bolts (1) from the window motor located on the front side
of the motor.
Do not allow the cable gear to come out of the housing. Failure will
result in the cable coming off the spool.
8.. Separate the motor from the cable housing by wiggling the window
motor. Observe the orientation of the window motor.
9.. Remove the motor from the window regulator assembly.
These regulators are a failure item. The cable breaks and the
replacement comes as a whole unit that is quite simple to replace.
Costs here in Canadian$ $300. Have replaced both in my 99 Z71.
