Oh, isn't that fun? They say that you can drill it. I never have success with that. My preferred method, now is to use a Dremel tool and carefully cut away the rivit only. You will need a PERFECT surface for the replacement to attach to.

HOW DO I CHANGE THE REGULATOR FOR A REAR WINDOW ON 2000 VOLVO S80


Im not 100% sure about the rear but with the front windows i removed the panel then the foam piece. I then removed the torx screws holding the regulator from the motor itself there were three in the front windows not sure about the back. There were 4 rivits holding the regulator to the door which i had to drill out. Once i put the new regulator in i put new rivits in attatched the window to the regulator via the blue clips and put it all back together.

I need to take a power window motor out of my 2001 chevy silverado 2500 but dont know how


You need to replace the " regulator". this includes the motor, cables and pulleys ect. $80-100. Open door, remove door panel, cut the clear plastic around the door handle, loosen the 2 clamps on the top vertical travel rails that clamp to the window, (this is all part of the regulator) . somehow you need hold the window up, (I use a towel, 2 pieces of wood and a big clamp) now the window glass can be released from the clamps on the regulator. unbolt the regulator mechanism and replace. should take an hour or less the first time. about 10-15 minute thereafter. bc

Window will not roll up or down


Two possible problems. Defective motor or window regulator. Remove the door panel, you will see three star screws holding in the motor. Remove the motor, remove the plate, one screw, inside the motor you should see three plastic plugs, these get old and turn to powder, to replace these you can purchase these from any automotive store for around $8.50. But I would replace these with ball bearings cost.64 each. Now you will see some aluminum plugs with rivits holding in the window regulator. To remove these you nweed to punch out the rivits, and drill out the aluminum using 1/4 drill bit. Replace these with 1/4 inch bolts and nuts. Pack the motor with wheel bearing grease and grease the window regulator. You may want to consider replacing all the regulators and checking all the motors. If one has gone bad the others will follow. Just rweplaced all 4 on my old 1996 mercury. Order the regulators on line much cheaper.

How do i put in the drive side door window


First remove the door panel, peel down the water barier, you will see three star screws remove these, then remove the window motor, take themotor apart, replace the plastic plugs with ball bearings, repact the motor, then remove the rivits holding in the winidow regularot and the window glass. To do this you need /14 punch, punch out the rivits, then using 1/4 drill drill out the aluminum plugs, replace these with 1/4 boltd and lock washers. Replace the window but do not over tighten the window or it will go up slow. You can purchase the regulators on line much cheaper than purchasing them from a shop. On Line around $18-30. At an auto shop $60-70. Hope this is helpful.

Approximate cost to replace a rear window regulator. Parts and labor


Expensive. But you csan do it yourself. First remove the door panel, purchase the regulator on line, after removing the door panel you will see three star scres holding in the window motor. Remove this, take it apart and check the plastic plugs, if worn replace with ball bearings, if goo pack with plenty of bearing grease. Now you will see aluminum holding the regulator on. Using a 1/4 punch and a hammer punch out the rivits, then using 1/4 drill bit , drill out the aluminum, if you must remove the glass first remove the rollers holding in the glass, they pop out with a screw driver. Replace the aluminum which was holding the glass with 1/4 scrwws and bolts. Takes about 4 hours. If one is going bak all will go bad eventually, had to replace all 4 on mine.

1989 GMC Sierra truck doors loose


Hey there.You can purchase a door pin and bushing repair kit to tighten up the hinge area,requires removing the door to replace.If the hinge area is worn to badly,the brass bushings willnot last.Also your window crank handle is held on by a C-clip behind the handle in between the plastic shim and the handle which requires a special tool to remove or a small screwdriver to get the clip off.It is hard to see.The shaft that the handle is on are known to wear also and if thats the case you will need to have the window regulator replaced.Hope this helps.John.
