Question about 1996 Honda Civic
My 96 Civic driver's side power window stop working one day. i checked fuses first and then looked for loose wires. while investigating i took off the door cover and looked at and managed to look at the electrical connections to the regulator/motor, of course all looked fine, except some wiring going to the regulator/motor which had some wiring harness(to protect the wires?), that harness had some water in it and it literally poured out water. i could only think that water shorted out the regulator or motor?
i did replace the main switches that control all other windows (i had no problem with the other windows, even before replacement) and still no luck with the drivers side window.
do you think the water in the wiring harness created a short in either the regulator or motor, which means replacement of either or?
the other question i have is HOW to remove the existing regulator and if needed motor? i have tried a number of times to remove the old so i can replace with new but i am having a heck of a time just figuring out how to get the components out
thanks you for your help
Before replaceing check voltage from switch to regulator then to motor that will tell you which component is bad when you find that out look at the mounting styl off the failed component mos are held in with clips or rivets if they are riveted in you will have to drill them out
