SOURCE: Replace regulator on driver's side window of a 2005 Sunfire

i dont know of any car window regulator that is attached to the outer door skin. generally there should only be 5 mounting screws holding the regulator in the door cavity. 2 on the top 2 on the bottom and one near the regulator motor. when these are sent to the manufacture the lifting plates that hold the glass are in what is called a shipping position. which allows them to install the regulator in the door and then attached the glass. this position is generally half way up the guide rail. so picture the window only being open half way. look at the regulatr that you bought. the position of the lifting plates (glass attachments) is where the regulator inthe door should be in order to get it out. good luck

2007 kia optima drivers side window not operating correctly. i gets stuck


You might want to give a few more details, does it get stuck going down or coming up? Are they manual or power window?. I had a case with a car (although not a Kia) that the bolts on the regulator came loose it would go down but not return to the up position. If this is the case remove the inside door panel and check for loose bolts or broken rivets holding your window regulator in place. The regulator is what puts your window up and down.

You have to drill out the rivets
-- to remove the window regulator & motor assy

If the motor is bad (test it-put battery
12v to it) then you drill out the smaller
rivets to remove the motor & keep the
window regulator if good.

If the regulator is bad, remove the good motor
& put it in the new regulator

The regulator can be bolted back in as you
will not have a big size pop rivet tool for that,

Before you remove the rivets, check the height of the
window glass above the door,when window is down
You can set it just above the molding per build or down
even by adjusting how you bolt the regulator in

The regulators wear out & cause a sloppy window movement
& the plastic on top can not be fixed

nor can you afford one.

How to un ininstal the electric window motor on a 1997 lumina


Window Regulators and Motors - REMOVAL & INSTALLATION

NOTE Some window regulators are retained at least in part, by heavy-duty pull rivets. To remove these rivets, the center mandrel must be pushed through with a small punch, and the rivet(s) drilled out with a 3 / 16 inch drill bit. The factory recommended repair requires the use of the same quality of heavy-duty pull rivet.

Fig. Chevrolet models use a cross-arm type window regulator
Coupe and sedan front doors use a cross arm regulator. The following procedures are required for removal and replacement of both power and manual window regulators.
  1. Remove the door trim panel, as outlined in this section.
  2. Remove the plastic sheet water deflector and the energy absorber (foam pad).
  3. Remove the door window. Please see Door Window Glass, Removal and Installation in this section.
  4. Detach the electrical connector, if equipped.
  5. Remove the window regulator bolts and the regulator cam nut.
  6. Drill out and remove the pull rivets.
  7. Remove the window regulator cam bolt.
  8. Remove the window regulator from the vehicle.
CAUTION Do not attempt to service the window regulator motor separately. It is part of the window regulator. The regulator lift arm is under tension from the counterbalance spring and can cause personal injury if the motor is removed from the regulator. The door window regulator cannot be serviced separately. If defective, replace the regulator and motor as an assembly.
To install:
  1. Position the regulator by inserting the bottom through the access opening in the door, then rotate the top of the regulator through the opening while lowering the regulator to clear the top of the access opening. Align the holes in the regulator with holes in the door inner panel.
  2. Install the door window regulator bolts and tighten to 89 inch lbs. (10 Nm).
  3. Install new pull rivets. Install the upper left rivet first, followed by the lower right rivet.
  4. Install the door window regulator cam bolt and cam nut and tighten both to 89 inch lbs. (10 Nm).
  5. Attach the electrical connector, if equipped with power windows.
  6. Install the door window. Please see Door Window Glass, Removal and Installation in this section.
  7. Install the energy absorber (foam pad) and reposition the plastic sheet water deflector.
  8. Install the door trim panel, as outlined in this section.

Hope helps (remember rated this).

Drivers side window regulator broken.


there is like 5 or 6 bolts that you have to take out,then you drill the rivets out. then you remove the whole assembly,install the new assembly,either rivet the new one in or use bolts and nuts,use small bolts to allow the window to roll up. make sure you lube the track really well.

Removal of driver side front power window regulator


you have to replace your window regulator. to do this you have to remove the 7 rivets holding the regulator, the window motor and window. first, take a punch and pop the centers out of rivets. then drill them out. this will allow you to remove old parts. then reverse the process. you will need special rivets from Ford and a large rivet gun.
