SOURCE: how do you remove the window regulator from 1992

Yes, four rivets hold the regulator in place. You will need large rivet gun and some long reach rivets. The rivets are available from most parts stores (NAPA).
Punch the center of the rivet out and remove the head.

I have a 1986 Cadillac Fleetwood with two front window motors that have stopped working, and a rear passenger side window that will only go down. I am trying to replace the driver window now and have...


I had an 86 Deville

You have to drill out the rivets
-- to remove the window regulator & motor assy

If the motor is bad (test it-put battery
12v to it) then you drill out the smaller
rivets to remove the motor & keep the
window regulator if good.

If the regulator is bad, remove the good motor
& put it in the new regulator

The regulator can be bolted back in as you
will not have a big size pop rivet tool for that,

Before you remove the rivets, check the height of the
window glass above the door,when window is down
You can set it just above the molding per build or down
even by adjusting how you bolt the regulator in

The regulators wear out & cause a sloppy window movement
& the plastic on top can not be fixed

nor can you afford one.

Before removing the guide pin, scribe a line around it. This will enable you to install it in the exact position it was removed in.
  1. Remove the glass by gently lifting it from the guide.
  2. The glass can now be removed by pulling it through the window slot.
CAUTION Use extreme caution when handling window glass.
Check the guide pin for wear. Replace as necessary.
  1. Detach the connector and remove the regulator through the hole in the door.
Scribe a line around the rear roller guide bolt. This mark will show where the original adjustment was at before you removed the component.
  1. Remove the power window motor from the window regulator assembly.
  2. Remove any clips and pull the glass run channel out.
It may be necessary to remove the glass stopper.

WARNING Grease all of the sliding surfaces of the regulator or component failure may occur.
To install:
  1. Install the window motor on the regulator assembly.
As a check, you can connect a known good 12 volt power source to the window motor to check the operation of the entire assembly. The regulator should operate with a steady, consistent motion in either direction.
  1. Install the glass run channel into the door as shown.
  2. Install the regulator.
  3. Install the glass.
  4. Install the center channel guide.
  5. Move the glass up and down to ensure free movement.
  6. Attach the door wiring harness to the door.
  7. Disconnect the window switch (on power controlled models) and install it into the door panel.
  8. The remainder of the installation process is the reverse of removal.


Electric Window Motor - REMOVAL & INSTALLATION
  1. Remove the regulator from the door assembly. Refer to the procedure in this section.
  2. Except for the rear doors, drill a hole through the regulator sector gear and backplate. Install the bolt and nut to lock the sector gear in position. Be careful not to drill a hole closer than 7 / 16 in. (11mm) from the edge of the sector. Also, do not drill through the lift arm attaching portion of the sector gear, or the joint integrity will be jeopardized.
  3. Drill out the ends of the motor attaching rivets using a 1 / 4 in. (6mm) bit.
  4. Remove the motor and the remaining portions of the rivets from the regulator. Except for the rear doors, one rivet will not be accessible until assembly.
(see Figures 1 and 2 / click over pic for zoom)

Fig. 1: Regulator and motor assembly-except rear doors

zjlimited_252.jpg

Fig. 2: Secure the rivets by collapsing the rivet ends using a ball peen hammer



To install:

  1. Position the new motor to the regulator. With the aid of an assistant, install new rivets by collapsing or crushing the rivet ends using a ball peen hammer.
  2. Except for the rear doors, once two of the three rivets have been installed, remove the bolt securing the sector gear to the backplate, then use an appropriate electrical source (such as the vehicle's window motor harness) to rotate the regulator, providing access to the remaining rivet.
  3. Except for the rear doors, use a flat nosed rotary file to grind off one sector gear tooth from the side which does not contact the driven gear. This is necessary to reach the remaining rivet. Remove the old rivet, then install the remaining new rivet.
  4. Install the regulator to the door assembly.

How to un ininstal the electric window motor on a 1997 lumina


Window Regulators and Motors - REMOVAL & INSTALLATION

NOTE Some window regulators are retained at least in part, by heavy-duty pull rivets. To remove these rivets, the center mandrel must be pushed through with a small punch, and the rivet(s) drilled out with a 3 / 16 inch drill bit. The factory recommended repair requires the use of the same quality of heavy-duty pull rivet.
