    I was getting depressed after getting an estimate of $392 from the dealer to have the window motor replaced. After researching on-line, I found this Dorman Regulator assembly at Advance and could be easily replaced without having to worry about realigning track cables and synchronizing the window operation. As a complete unit for under $97, it easily replaces the original unit with no worry of error. It took me about 50 minutes from start to finish and the unit works smoothly and effortlessly. Feels good to save almost $300 by doing it yourself.

    This Dorman product is not good. About 3 years ago, my 2002 Chevrolet Silverado 2500 HD's original regulators bit the dust. I replaced them both with these Dorman products. From day 1, I noticed the motors on these units were not as strong. Performance wasn't horrible, but you could just tell that it wasn't quite as good as the original units.

    About 1 to 1.5 years later, they both broke (within ~2 weeks of each other). The cable rusts and either breaks or binds up in the mechanism. I replaced them both. Now, here I am again. They're both broke again ~1.5 years later.

    Only positive is the lifetime warranty and Advance Auto's willingness to replace the units free of charge. Of course, the labor is on me, which is a couple of hours of my life I'll never get back!

    If you can find a better unit, buy it. These are horrible.

              I pulled this out of the box to install and the parts didn't match up. The motor was on the wrong side and the clips were facing the wrong direction. I took back to the store to exchange and the one they had in stock was designed the same way. We compared to the picture on the computer and it didn't match the picture either. The size and main frame of it were correct, just the motor and the clips were installed wrong. I went to a store across town and finally got one that matched the picture and the one I removed. Very frustrating spending 2.5 hours driving around town to obtain the correct part for a 45 minute job. Once I got the right part, it installed easy and worked great. Hopefully they just had a bad batch of parts and they don't make a habit out of it. Service was great, however, at both stores I visited.

                  Item installed fairly easy and was as close to OEM as possible for aftermarket part. I have installed 3 of these items at the same time about 2 months ago and all are functioning great.

                          When I arrived at the store, the Window Regulator kit was ready for me, but the box was open. I was hesitant about taking the open box, but the part looked new. I installed the part and everything looked good until I went to roll down the window and one of the pieces on the regulator was put on backwards. This almost caused my window to break. I caught it in time; My new part was a return...I hope it holds up.

                                  This Dorman product is not good. About 3 years ago, my 2002 Chevrolet Silverado 2500 HD's original regulators bit the dust.

                                    One of my main concerns was if this unit would operate as quietly as the original. To my delightful surprise, it's just as quiet and strong(er) as the GM window motor.

                                    I've replaced regulator/motors before so the installation only took me about 30 minutes. For a 1st-timer, you're looking at 45 minutes being cautious. You need a flat-blade screw driver, 10mm socket or nutdriver, 7mm (9/32") socket or nutdriver and some blue painters tape to secure the window during the swap.

                                    If you're not sure....definitely watch the youtube videos for the job. Well worth it.

                                        I recommend purchasing a Haynes repair manual specifically for your vehicle. This should be able to assist you further into detail on how to repair or replace specific parts.
