Question about Lexus ES 300
You can check, but I'd bet that you'll not be able to get just the part
you want, and you'll have to get the entire assembly. Sometimes you can
get just the motor or just the regulator, but trying to purchase just
one part of the regulator most likely can't be done.
If you have the patience, the usual home mechanic's tools, a place to do the work, and a little mechanical savvy, its a DIYer. Over the years I've done many of these on a lot of different cars. They all have a different setup of motors and window assemblies, but they are pretty much the same when it comes to how to change them out. I suggest buying a used motor/regulator assembly(for the same rear door) from a junkyard and doing a swap. The glass rides in a front and rear channel and is usually connected to a sliding channel across its bottom edge by two bolts or plastic sliding grips through the glass. To get to these bolts or clips you'll have to slide the glass down until these bolts/clips line up with holes or ports through the steel inside panel of the door. After you undo these fasteners, you'll be able to separate the glass from the bottom channel. Then rotate the glass through 20 degrees or so to drop its leading edge from the front channel and lift the glass out of the door towards the inside of the car. Now you just locate and undo the bolts that hold the motor/window assembly to the interior steel panel of the door. There are usually 4 of them but there could be one or two extra. Unclip the wiring harness to the assembly and pull the motor/regulator out through the largest opening in the door shell.
Putting the new/used regulator in is just the reverse, and be sure to test its operation fully before you hang the interior door panel back on. See if you can purchase an entire door including the glass, with the understanding that you'll return the door and its glass for a refund after you get the motor/regulator assembly out. That way you'll be able to take your time to see how the unit comes apart, before you do the work on your car. I don't know how it works where you live, but we have several wrecking yards here that will allow you to remove your own parts.
When you finally get to the job, mark the bolt locations for any you remove from the door in order to remove the window regulator. When you get the new parts installed it'll save you having to realign the glass in the opening, and the glass should fit perfectly without any fiddling.
Hope help with this, good luck.
