Hello the way to tell is where the wire plugs into the motor go back about 6-8 inches is there another connection together if not pigtail is wired into main harness the question is no if there is one you could probaly get the wire seperate from dealer or junkyard if the wiring is tied into the main harness you might want to splice a new end that goes into your motor use male and female adapters in case you ever need to change again rather than keep cutting your harness down goodluck

Rear passenger window drivers side wont work - mitsubishi 380


380 Mitsubishi's have a electric window regulator problem

front and back regulators are notorious for breaking and failing.

some times the cables also come off or the plastic components attached to the cables break

the motor turns a plastic wheel that winds the cables back and forward and this wheel jams or the cables come off the guides.

anyway the short answer is to change the whole regulator with a secondhand or a new one depending on your budget

i hope this helps

Drivers side window does not roll up. Windows are electric. Passenger side window works.What might be the problem?

the 14 year old power window regulator is dead. buy a new one on ebay and pay a glass shop to install it for you. cost you about 150 bucks total. stay away from a dealer. all electric motors die, 14 years is not a bad run for the most used window in the car, not a mystery.

Drivers side window will not go up, I think it's the motor. 202 mitsubishi galant 4 door

If u switch the WiNDOW and u hear some buzzing inside the door, means the motor is still working! Mostly the part easily get broken is the WiNDOW REGULATOR assembly! You could buy and replace the regulator only w/o the motor! Before putting a new regulator add some GREASE on the cable link and the plastic guide!
