If the concern remains after the inspection, connect the Rotunda New Generation Star (NGS) Tester, 007-00500 or equivalent, to the data link connector (DLC) located beneath the instrument panel to perform DATA LINK DIAGNOSTICS test. If the NGS responds with NO RESPONSE/NOT EQUIPPED for the driver door module, go to Pinpoint Test A .

How to change regulator motor on a 2003 buick

from Long answer
All Buick automobiles now have powered windows for both front and back doors. These powered windows use a motor attached to a continuous screw that lifts and lowers a lattice device for opening and closing the window. Each window also has a window regulator to tell the motor when to stop both lowering the window and raising it into place. Occasionally, this regulator will become faulty and need to be replaced. Although not a difficult procedure, it does mean having to disassemble the Buick's door.
jQuery('.intro .thumbnail').each(function(i,e){ jQuery(e).find('img').one('error',function(){ jQuery(e).remove(); }); });
    Door Armrest
  1. The first thing to do is remove the Buick's armrest on the door. Underneath the armrest, hidden from view, are large screws that go all the way into the doorframe. Remove all of these screws and the armrest will come free. Once it's loose, carefully disconnect all the wires to the remote control switches. The driver door armrest will have more wires than the other doors. Door Panel
  2. Once you've removed the armrest, you can take off the inside door panel. Start by going all the way around the door's edges and removing all the fasteners. Once you've removed these may find some clips holding the panel tight, depending on your model Buick. Carefully unfasten these and then work the door panel up off its guide at the top of the door next to the window opening and around the car door handle. If your Buick has a door-mounted nightlight, disconnect the wires to the accessory. This will give you access to the door's interior. Removing the Old Regulator
  3. Inside the door there are two components with electrical wires: the motor and the regulator. The motor is attached to a long threaded bolt. Remove the wires connected to the regulator and then the screws mounting the regulator to the doorframe. Be careful not to scratch the window with the screwdriver when working in these close quarters. Once the regulator is free inside the door, lift it out of the door. Installing the New Regulator
  4. Installation is just doing the removal procedure in reverse: put the regulator in the door, secure it, connect the wires (no need to solder; the wires are connected with tabs), and reattach the door panel, the switch wiring and the arm rest.

    It should take no longer than an hour to complete this project. One quick warning, however---never force or strain any part to remove it. If a component does not come free easily, then check again for an extra screw or retaining clip. Don't get frustrated and break something that ends up being more expensive than the cost of the new regulator!

Instructions on how to install window regulator on 99 Expedition

Here is the procedure, the "dimples" are on the metal surface of the inside of the door. With the waterscreen off you can locate the motor to help you tell where the dimples are. Drill holes then use a socket to remove window motor bolts.

Front Door Window Regulator Motor
Removal and Installation

Raise the front door window glass to the full up position.
Remove the front door trim panel.
Remove the door speaker.
Position the watershield aside.
CAUTION: Make sure the electrical connector is positioned aside before drilling.

To access the power window motor bolts, use a 19 mm (3/4-in) hole saw with a 8 mm (1/4-in) pilot to drill three holes at the existing drill dimples on the door.

Disconnect the front door window regulator electrical connector.

Remove the bolts and the front door window regulator motor.

Passenger window i need two parts to repair it ?

You will not know which is the problem until you get into the window. This is a pretty straight forward job, remove all screws holding the door panel on, some will be hidden behind plastic tabs. Take a door panel tool, about $5.00 at a parts store, work it around the panel to find the plastic clips, gently pry them up one at a time. Remove dust cover. You now should be able to see the regulator and the motor. If regulator is intact meter the motor. If the motor is not getting power the problem is the switch. If the motor is bad drill out the pop rivets and remove motor. I have found on some doors it is easier to use nuts and bolts to put the motor and regulators back instead of pop rivets, just make sure they will fit when everything goes back together.

Window motor expired.

If you look very closely, the motor does unscrew from the regulator. However, getting the regulator is a bi***. Remove all the bolts to loosen the regulator and carefully work it around towards the biggest opening. The neumatic little hose is bendable, but be careful. Prior to doing this, remove a switch from another door to elimate a faulty switch. The plug comes down from above. You need to stick your hand inside the door well to find it. If you need the regulator too. just go down to the junk yard and practice removing the motor and regulator.

My 2001 LeSabre has "jumped off track" and, although the motor works (you can hear it) the window obviously doesn't move. I need to know what tools I need and where to find a door diagram to help in the...

First of all get a Haynes manual for your model! You'll need a phillips screwdriver, a upholstry clip pryer, and a 10mm socket. And a little patience! Your window regulator cables are probably jacked up, get a new window regulator on E-Bay for under 60.00. Find one with free shipping! I got one in three days. Carefully pry the inside door handle backer off, should be a screw there, maybe one or two more if its the front,remove window switches, carefully pry off door panel, peel off plastic, turn-out window clamp bolts 3-turns, window must be up and clamp bolts will align with holes in door, remove other regulator bolts, hold window up w/board, roll down window, and finally monuvoer the regulator out. hopefully helpful and good luck!!

How do I replace a rear window motor on a 1999 Subaru Forester? I need a diagram of the procedure.

first the door panel must be removed, once inside at the bottom of the door glass you will see it is attached to the regulator bar with to bolts, remove them separating the door glass from the regulator. (most of the time you must move the door glass up and down for the bolts to line up with an access hole so they can easily be removed...I assume your motor is shot and the bolts may be difficult to remove). the regulator has to be removed as the motor is attached to it. I'm not familiar with this one, but there is usually 3 or 4 bolts around the motor area and 2 bolts on the idler arm track, once removed the regulator should be free to wiggle out. remove the motor from the regulator.
Hope this helps.
