Depends on the vehicle...I normally can replace a regulator assembly in 1.5 hours, unless the original is riveted in place, then 2 hours total to drill out the original and replace the rivets

My 2005 jaguar s type fron driver window will not roll up all the way how can i fix that

Sounds like bad window regulator.
If you get lucky you can spray silicone in the window run channels. That won't fix regulator but it could help a weak motor move it up.
If you broke the side view mirror off and caused this then your channel is bent and needs straightened

Ba ford falcon drivers side glass replacement regulator- how to

If you have never done this type of repair, I wouldn't recommend it!
It doesn't cost very much in labor for a trained professional to replace your regulator. You can price the regulator yourself at a local parts store but I would buy the whole assembly! Motor & Regulator together, you should get a lifetime warranty on the parts.

Then let your mechanic install it, I only charge around $60-$70 to install them and the regulator assembly shouldn't be but around $125 or so. Hope this helps. But, below you will find some good info if you intend to replace it yourself. Good luck

Your door panel is held on mostly by plastic clips on the inside of the panel, they go around the sides and bottom of the panel. The easiest way to remove the panel is with a door clip removal tool, you should be able to pick them up at any good auto parts store or tool store.

Also, there is going to be a couple of screws that also holds the panel and works to reinforcement it. They should be around the area where your grab handle is to close the door. Most times you have to also remove the handle assembly to remove the door panel.

You also need to remove the power window/door lock switch panel. Most all the switch panels are held in place with clips as well. A screw driver placed in the right place will pop the switch panel up so you can get access to the wire assembly to disconnect it.

Once you get everything removed mentioned above, your door panel will lift off by pulling up on it. You then will have a plastic sheet/moisture barrier covering the inside panel, remove it without tearing it if possible. If you happen to tear it, you can use duct tape to repair it as well as stick it back to the inside panel.

Your door window regulator will have to be replaced. I recommend buying the regulator and motor as an assembly, it makes it easier and usually you get a lifetime warranty on the parts.

To remove the regulator, locate and remove the bolts that hold the regulator to the panel, you will also have to loosen/remove the bolts holding the door glass to the regulator. I like to use some duct tape to hold the glass in place while you work to remove and replace the regulator.

Not sure of the cost of the regulator, say $75. to $100.00, Then 1 hour shop time @ $75.00. You have to replace the regulator, the cable can not be fixed. Tried it a couple of times and it doesn't work.

All windows except the drivers one quit working. can I fix this without taking to mechanic for diagnosis?

If they all failed together i think a common element, such as the driver's master switch is the bad guy. if however they all failed at separate times, most likely the regulators have just died of old age. 10 years is about all you can expect from them, the driver's door fails faster and most likely yours was changed already.

you can buy new regulators on eBay or at parts store, and any auto glass shop can install them for you. that will save a lot of money over a dealer parts and labor cost. it is possible to do it yourself however it helps to have someone with the right tools and fasteners on hand.

Replace motor on power window on drivers front

the car is 12 years old, all the regulators have done their job, especially the driver door. go to a parts store and buy a new regulator, or buy one on ebay, and pay a glass shop to install it. it makes no sense to put a new motor in a used regulator, the gearing will finish stripping out next year and you will have the labor cost again. The labor to remove and replace the motor in the regulator, usually riveted in, is much more than just pulling and tossing the old regulator and installing a new one. once you have replaced a regulator you would gladly pay anyone twice the 50 bucks a glass store charges for this job. they have the tools, the fasteners and the expertise.

1998 olds intrigue drivers door power windows cable broke i need to know how to recable it for it to work

this is a common problem on late 90s GMs. what you need is a new regulator. buy one on ebay and pay a glass shop to install it. Ten years is about all you can expect out of the motor so just go ahead and do the whole thing. labor to swap the regulator is much cheaper than to try and fix the regulator.

The driver side front window just slides down. The motor works and can see the cable go up and down.

if this is a cable drive system then the whole regulator assembly will have to be replaced. there is no real repair to do and these will drive you crazy trying to repair them.

hey jonest21,
I agree with emissionwiz, the fuse is most likely not the problem. Ive seen this numerous times. The window regulators on these older s types are very weak, and break all the time. They are fairly expensive to replace, and the dealership will charge at least an hour and a half for labor.
The door panel has to come off in order to get to the door panel. If you are goin to attempt this by yourself post it that you are, and ill give you more help on removing the parts.
