Question about Toyota Solara

1 Answer

It seems that the cable on the driver side window regulator snapped. The window motor seems to be functioning properlly. I would really prefer not to replace the entire unit do they sell regulators without the motors so that I can take the current motor and put it on a new regulator? If i can do this is there an online manual that shows you how or will a chiltons or haynes have that info in it? Thx

Hi, you can actually get a window regulator bought separately without the motor because the motor that powers the window regulator is often sold and serviced as a separate item or sometimes as a unit with the regulator included...

You can buy the Haynes or Chilton manual to get instruction on how to fix it.....

2003 Chevy Silverado 1500 passenger window does not roll up or down. When I press the switch on the drivers or passenger side a click is heard. Could it be a regulator or motor?


This vehicle has a cable style regulator, which has probably snapped a cable. Replacement regulators come with a motor already installed. New aftermarket units cost around 125 to 150 and are fairly easy to install.

The cable snapped and you have to get a new or used window regulator. Common problem but no way to repair it.

The power window on my truck will come down, but won't go back up. The motor seems to be working fine. I need a diagram of all the parts so I can determine which parts need to be repaired or replaced....


The power window regulator and motor come as am assembly. Usually the cable snaps and the window drops down and won't come back up. About a $400 repair.

  1. Remove the front window regulator.
    • Loosen the two hanger bolts.
    • Remove the front window regulator bolts and front top run channel bolt.
