How do i respool the motor for electric window motor

I assume you are talking about the window regulator, which can not be re-spooled. You can purchase a new one around $40-$60 from most parts stores on the internet. has them starting around $36 and up. It would then have to be replaced, most shops will charge around 1.5 to 2.5 hours.
Please let me know if I can further assist you. -TXTEXAN

95 vw cabrio back window won't go up

First off, if they could hear the motor, they took advantage of you already!! These windows are cable driven and there is no way to repair the motor and regulator assembly. The regulator you may be able to do by yourself depending on your skill level. A new (or used) window regulator will need to be purchased. Let me know what else you may need.

Stuborn Windows 2002 Audi A6

your window regulator is going bad, you will need to replace it. I have the A4 and I have replaced both front window regulators myself. If you plan on doing it yourself you will need to get a drill as Audi uses Rivets to hold the regulator in place. you can then replace the rivets with nuts and bolts.

2001 Toyota corolla LE: Driver side power window problems

The motor is burned out, likely due to heavily worn brushes inside. As the motor cools (from lack of use) it becomes usable again, but quickly heats up and seizes with use.

You will need to replace the window motor. If you are mechanically inclined it is not a difficult job.

The door panel needs to be removed (numerous philips screws and push fasteners), then there are two 10mm bolts holding the glass to the regulator. Support the glass in the upward position with tape or suction cup supporting devices.

Disconnect the power to the motor and unbolt the regulator from the door (about 5 10mm bolts), then slide the regulator and motor assembly out the door opening.
If you purchased a complete regulator/motor (typical aftermarket), simply install the new one in reverse order.
If you purchased just the motor (typical OEM), you will need to unbolt the motor from the regulator. Becautious as the regulator is spring loaded and will snap open once the motor separates. Install the new motor with the regulator in the same position as before disassembly, and reinstall into the vehicle.

Replacing window regulator

You can buy the plastic clips from the dealer, break the old ones, there is no tool that I remember using, in fact I don't remember having any problem, are you sure the regulator is at fault? why not just replace the motor?

Driver's side window regulator

I just replaced the regulator in my mother's 98 civic ex and didnt need any special tools. I do recommend replacing the glass run channels on either side of the window. I have replaced the regulator twice and it is still having problems as I haven't replaced the run channels. If not replaced very soon I can see myself replacing the regulator...yet again!

Broken Ford Focus 3 door 04 reg Window Regulator. Can I replace myself?

If you search Google for Ford Focus Window Regulator replacement, you should find a great deal of information. The front doors are different from the rear (sedan, station wagon) doors. I've replaced the rear window regulator and it wasn't hard but the front window regulator is very different from the rear regulator.
