Question about 2001 Oldsmobile Aurora
Search E-bay, there are units available for $42
2001 2003 2002 Oldsmobile Aurora Window Regulator
Posted on Nov 16, 2008
A bit late to the party, but perhaps I can help. GM went to a cable-operated system of window regulator in the late 1990's, saving space and money. Both ends are anchored into a block in the middle that attaches to the bottom of the window regulator, so when the cable winds in one direction, the window goes up, and vice-versa. This block is a composite material, and, over time, it breaks, releasing one end of the cable. You have to replace the window regulator when this happens, and some models have the motor built into the regulator assembly. As with most other GM parts, the regulator costs GM about $12, but it's going to cost you about 40 times that at list price. Combine this with the two hours of labor required to change out the part, and you have an $800 repair bill.
These units aren't repairable under normal conditions, partly because they are put together under tension and the metal parts are then welded together. So, rebuilts are not available.
