Question about 2007 Mitsubishi Eclipse
Well, a person with a mechanical tool set should be able to take off the panel and look at the regulator which probably has broken plastic parts on it.
It's not unheard of for the average person to repair this problem by getting a regulator from a salvage yard, that is good, and replacing it.
The window should come out by angling it out of the slot.
I'd say half the people I know can do it themselves, and the other half have someone at a body shop or salvage yard/body shop do it.
Last time I had it done on my 1990 Cadillac Deville, they used 'used' parts. Cost me under $80 to have it done. That was a bargain considering that it took them about 1 hour to do it. Hasn't broken since.
A new regulator can cost over $150 to $300 depending on the vehicle.
If you want to get it done right the first time, just have someone else do it who specializes in glass.
