Go to ebay motors and buy a new regulator, costs about a hundred bucks, do not put a used one in and buy the whole thing not just the motor.

call around for remove and install prices at local auto glass shops and use the second cheapest quote. these guys will be fast and have all the right tools and needed fasteners on hand. cost about $50.00

or go to a GM dealer and drop the better half of $500 for the same deal.

Need to locate the starter location for a 1999 saturn sl2

It's on the backside of the motor if you stand on the drivers side and look down on the back side of the motor you can just see it the best way to get at it is put the car up on jack stands get under the car it's in the middle of the back of the motor.
Good luck

All windows are power windows. all but the drivers side cannot go down. please advise.

It could be and most likely is the power window motor is bad. Since the driver's side is the one used most often it is the first one to go bad. I would also check the power window switch also to see if it is receiving and giving power to the motor.

My 1997 SL2 saturn driver window won't roll down. it's electric and it doesn't make any noise. what do i need to do to fix it?

get a new power window regulator for 90 bucks on ebay, pay a glass shop to install it. it is an electric motor and did 10 years service, you can afford to replace it every decade. i have replaced 3 on a 99SW so consider yourself lucky.

Driver side window motor not going up or down

You may be having problems with the motor drawing too many amps and kicking out a circuit breaker. If this is the case, you will have to replace the window motor.Check the window switch too.It can also be the cause of window not working.You can check both the window as well as switch with voltmeter or a test light to confirm which part is faulty. The window motor is a 12 volt electrical part.So check for the 12 volt to the motor connections.If the voltage is low then its faulty motor and has to be replaced. ------------- Also in your question comment you have mentioned that driver side window motor not functioning.So in that case before going for new replacement motor,i suggest to connect the passenger side motor to driver side motor connections and check.If the window functions with passenger side motor connected then its a faulty driver-side motor,but if the window not working with passenger side motor connected , then its not the faulty motor but the faulty driver side window operating switch.It has to be replaced.But in some cases it has also seen that parts like motor as well as switch are ok but the problem relates to short in wiring or the wires getting loose between switch to regulator or switch to motor.So confirm this possibilities also before going for any kind of part replacements. --------------- Keep updated with any more queries.Thanks.

I have a 1999 Saturn SL2. The window on the driver side will not go up. At first I thought it was the buttons on the little piece between the seats that make the windows go up and down. I found out it...

63 year old lady go over to ebay and buy a new driver's door regulator, this is almost exactly 100 dollars with shipping. then call a local auto glass shop and make an appointment for them to install it, tell them you already have your own new regulator. I have had several of these put in 5 saturns over the years and never paid over 60 bucks labor. a glass shop will have the tools and fasteners on hand. stay the heck away from dealers on this.

Saturn 1999 sl2 1.9 window motor driver and regulator have to be replaced as a one piece

Makes sense to do it that way as they are sold as a unit and the gears on the regulator are often stripped so a new motor will not fix that problem. These can be found new aftermarket on ebay for less than a hundred dollars. You can get the same part at advance or autozone for about $140.00. Get a glass shop to do the labor, do not take it to a dealer.

1999 Saturn SL2 drivers side window doesn't go down all the way then makes a grinding noise, when put up makes a grinding noise

It sounds like there is somthing wrong with the window regulatior ( the motor in the door that moves the window)
1.Remove the inner door pannel (all parts)
2. hook up the window controls & try moving window up or down, make sure window is moving propley in tracks and siscor arms are not bound up.
3.If all is well with the above stuff, just replace the window regulatior and test befor you reasembil the door pannel
