Re: window regulators

He said he did but I've found it's gear motor section that all the grease is dried up that causes all the mal-function!

Re: window regulators

Whoops, missed that. I take it that by "gear motor section" you mean that worm drive part when you talk about the grease drying up?

Yes, it is a little more than just a gear but...... you can also buy tubing to repair the guides.

Re: window regulators

Ah. Mine, being a 92, I don't think I have tubes - mine look (last I checked) to be small metal box tubes with slots the whole length. The spinning shaft is inside, and the whole thing appears to be packed with grease. The tubes may have been an evolution for the 97+ models...

Re: window regulators

Thanks for all your suggestions. Since they all do work , although very slowly, I guess I'll just wait it out and see what happens.

Re: window regulators

In case anyone wants to know, my right side spring broke in mine in the middle of the mail route Saturday. I bought the Dorman complete assembly from autozone. I'm happy to see that it has the upgraded metal part where the spring is mounted to the part that goes up and down. It operates smoothly, only time will tell if the quality is up to par. It does seem to be a hair slower on the lifting side though. If the door panel wasn't such a pain in the ass I'd switch the motor and see if that made any difference.

Pretty sure the Napa ones I buy are rebranded Dormans.
On my 3rd in 10 years.
first one lasted about 6 months and the second one about 8 years.
Mine came with a lifetime warranty and seeing how the job is not that bad doesn't bug a real lot.
I did check to see if a Mopar motor would work in the Dorman regulator and it will not.
The gearing is a different size.
I would post a picture here for you to see but unlike other forums I am on would need a 3rd party photo thing.
And just refuse to do that.
LOL.
