Question about 2002 Buick LeSabre
Somewhere between a gross pain in the neck to a trivial fumbling around for 2 hours on a ten minute task part of the job. An experienced person with tools handy could do it in about 2 hours. An old retired shadetree like myself could do it in 4 hours- hopefully.
Not that big of a deal-getting the inner door panel off is about the hardest part. Once that is out of the way, and the plastic water barrier shield is peeled away to expose the inner part of the door, then you can get to the regulator mechanism. The door glass has to be removed from the regulator, then pulled out of the door, or taped up in the closed position-so it doesn't get in the way.
You may need an electric drill if the regulator has 4 rivets retaining it to the door. Some use bolts and nuts, some have rivets from the factory. You drill off the rivet heads, and replace with short bolts and nuts for the new regulator. Once the regulator mechanism is free from the door, then you have to bend, twist, and contort it so it will come out of the door. Sometimes a challenge, but it can be done.
