Question about 2000 GMC Sierra
If you are a hobby or trained welder you can fix the regulator provided the only problem is a broken cable. Remove the entire mechanism from the door and lay it out on a flat clean surface.I bought 1/8 cable (1/16 is actual size but 1/8 works on mine) and silver soldiered a hollow metal nipple onto the end of the cable. You have to install the cable on the drum first...measure the overall length of the old cable and then the resulting tension will be correct. If the old cable is too frayed for a length calculation then install a long length of cable onto the drum bolt on the regulator/motor mechanism and use needle nose pliers to hold cable 'extended' against the spring tensioner.
The entire mechanism can be installed into the window/door frame with a twisting movement which allows the two frames and motor etc to pass by the door interior structure until it lines up with the bolt holes. If you're really careful and have small arms you can place the window on the bottom of the door leaning against the door away from you and all the way toward the door hinges. That way you avoid issues of window removal and installation into a curved frame and rubber seal.
By the way, a new motor/regulator complete assembly is about $100 so weigh that against your time when you decide which way to go.

You'll have to take the interior door panel off. there will be a couple of bolts holding in the motor and a couple holding the regulator on. they all have to come off to change out the regulator.
