Question about 1998 GMC Safari
Need info on replacing power window motor. Pretty shure it's bad as it makes a grinding sound at a certain poinit in its travel. already have all the panels off but noticed the screws holding the motor looks like it's hard to get to. Do I lower the window at this point?
I just replaced mine. You can leave the window up, it won't fall down. The motor is riveted on and will need to be drilled out and the new one riveted in. Use extra rivets. Easy install, just make sure that you have the motor all the way seated before you re-rivet (like I didn't at first.) Take this opportunity to raise and lower several times and grease the scissor mechanism and silicone spray the guides to resolve any current or future issues with binding etc.

My cable got tangled up and I had to replace the entire window assembly (except the glass). It was pretty easy. You take the door panels off, unplug the motor, support the glass with a prop, take out about 6 screws, and the whole track assembly including the motor came out. I bought the new assembly at Advance Auto for about $92.00. It was already put together too.
