The purpose of a cavity tray is to deflect moisture that has seeped through the external layer of brick or mortor back out of the property via the tray. All bricks are porous to different levels (you can tell from the specs how porous).

How to change out a window regulator on a 2003 town and country

First you have to remove the door trim there may be screws by the inside door handle and the armrest that have to be removed, also at bottom of trim. Once you have unscrewed the door trim pull trim away from door and undo all electrical connections neccessary. In some vehicles removal of the speaker may be required. Remove insulation material affixed to door to allow access to door cavity. You will need to wedge, tape glass to keep from falling. Remove bolts that hold window regulator to door and glass some of the newer Chryslers may have a locking clip that hold window to regulator remove and separete from glass. remove regulator to the opening and install new one

Electric windows don,t move up or down i checked all the fuses i cold find and they all work

Listen for motor when depressing switch, if you hear the motor then you have stripped window lift gear. They sell replacements which are often not necessary as there are 3 small nylon spacers that can be used to solve the problem, these will save you approx $30 per window. The teeth on the lift gear seldom strip out and often, you'll need little more than the 3 spacers to fix the problem. The autoparts store will try to sell you a kit which contains the gear and 3 spacers, if you swap just the gear and do not use the spacers, you will end up with the same problem again.Point is, you do not need to spend $30 on the kit, rather, you can located just the spacers in the self help section or at Lowes. Use the spacers as a reference if shopping for nylon spacers at Lowes. At a savings of $30 per window, it is worth the effort..

When you remove the electric motor, check to see if the cables for the regulator are intact. A visual inspection is an easy way to check if there is a problem. An important secondary measure is to have someone move the window up and down while you observe the drum in the regulator which the cables are wound around. If this operates smoothly, then all you need do is add the spacers to the lift gear and reinstall the motor..

If you need a new regulator, you will need to remove the doorlatch, this will give you access to one of 4 rivets that need to be drilled out to remove the regulator.

There are 2 rivets at the bottom of the door, 2 rivets inside the door cavity where the regulator attaches to the window, there are also 2 nuts at the top of the door, they are recessed but easy to spot. Drill out the 4 rivets, the 2 for the window are tricky to reach but once you remove the handle you will have access to the 4th. Do not drill out the 3 rivets around the motor, there are torx screws that you will remove instead.

Once all 4 rivets incuding the 2 rivets holding the window, the 3 torx holding the motor to the bracket and the 2 nuts holding the regukator are removed, you must pop the window out of its track then remove the defective regulator through the opening on the inside of the door. Do not try to lift it out of the top of the door. Install new regulator then pop window back into track and secure glass to regulator. You can reuse the 2 nuts you removed and you can use 4- 1" nut and bolts with some thread lock to secure the reg and glass, these will be used in place of rivets to install new reg. (If the reg doesn't include new nuts and bolts)

sounds to me like you may have a broken window regulator. Does the window go up and down still? reason I ask is cause I had a simaler problem with my pass. fr. door window (went down and never came back up) turned out to be a broken cable assem. in the regulator (cable driven design on late model '02's (JAN '02) build date and later) "early" models (JUNE '01-DEC.'01) used "steel track" regulators, an "m' fr'" to remove and install, mine turned out to be a "late" model ( FEB.'02) build date ( thank God!). Anyway, let me know whats up with it if you havent already fixed it. Good luck!

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
