Front door flex drive window regulator tightening sequence

need instructions on removale and install of 1985 - abd658f.gif

  1. Lower the glass all the way. Remove the trim panel as described earlier.
  2. Gently pull the air and water shields off the door.
  3. Remove the 3 nuts that attach the glass to the regulator channel. Then, lower the glass all the way.
  4. Remove the outer glass-sealing weatherstrip by disengaging the spring clip tabs from the slots in the outer door panel. To do this, grasp the weatherstrip between the thumb and forefinger on either side of each spring clip. Pull out slightly and then up at each clip until the weatherstrip is free.
  5. Work the glass off the mounting studs and remove it through the slot in the top of the lower door.
  6. To remove the regulator, drive the center pin of each regulator mounting rivet out with a hammer and drift punch. Then, drill the rivets out with a 1⁄4 in. (6mm) drill.
  7. Disengage the regulator arm from the lift plate and then remove the regulator through the access hole in the inside of the door. To install:
  8. Load the new regulator in through the access hole and engage the access arm with the lift plate. Then, bolt the regulator to the door with 1⁄4 –20 nuts and short screws, making sure these screws will not interfere with regulator operation. Tighten the screws and nuts to 90–115 inch lbs. (10–13 Nm).
  9. Install the new glass by lowering it into the door. Position the glass on the mounting studs.
  10. Install the outer weatherstrip by sliding the clips into the door panel slots and sliding them downward until they lock.
  11. Raise the glass to the top of its travel, then loosely install the 3 retaining nuts. Seat the glass fully in the upper glass run to adjust it, and then tighten the mounting nuts gently.
  12. Install the air and water shields and the trim panel as described earlier in this section.

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!

Window's not returning, yet motor activation is audible.Is it consumer servicable?

You have two possiblilties here. One the window regulator is bad, this is the devise that the window motor hooks to and is the mechanical means to move the window. The other is the motor, even though you can hear it run. The motor has a gear box with an over rideing clutch that can go bad, so even though the motor is running, the gears may not be. The best way to determine what you will need is to remove the inside door pannel and take a look. Yes you can service this yourself if you have some what of a mechanical inclination and a good set of tools. The most difficult thing you may encounter is the fact that many of these are installed with 1/4 pop rivets, and need a larger than normall pop rivet gun to install. Removall is normally to drill out old rivets or use a die grinder or dremell type tool to remove the old rivets.
