I a looking for instructions on how to install a power window regulator into a 98 Acura CL


Door Glass and Regulator - REMOVAL & INSTALLATION
  1. Remove the door panel.
  2. Remove the plastic cover from the door frame.
  3. Remove the power window switch from the door panel.
  4. Connect the power window switch to the door harness.
  5. Fully lower the glass.
  6. Pull the channel guide cover off.
  7. Remove the screws from the channel guide.
  8. Remove the center channel guide (if equipped).
  9. Carefully remove the glass until you can see the bolts and then carefully loosen all of them.
  10. Slide the window track guide to the rear.
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)


zjlimited_251.jpg


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.


Hope this helps (remmeber to rate and comment this).

I am guessing that you have the door panel off already so take the window all the way up and take some duct tape and secure the window up all the way. Remove the front door window glass to regulator assembly bolts. Loosen the glass clamp fasteners through the 2 vertical slots in the inner door panel. To install tighten to 80 inch pounds. If equipped disconnect the front door window electrical connector. Remove the front door window regulator bolts to install tighten to 8 foot pounds. Remove the front door window regulator and motor. To install in reverse order.

Power window repair


My cable got tangled up and I had to replace the entire window assembly (except the glass). It was pretty easy. You take the door panels off, unplug the motor, support the glass with a prop, take out about 6 screws, and the whole track assembly including the motor came out. I bought the new assembly at Advance Auto for about $92.00. It was already put together too.
