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.

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.

      After buying 2 other regulators from other retailers I decided to try the Dorman from advance. It is stronger,quieter and even looks more robust than the other Chinese replacements( the dorman is Taiwanese). Window issue solved!!!

      Good Product - Different from Original

        Comments about Dorman - OE Solutions Power Window Regulator and Motor Assembly:

        The product fits perfectly and works fine. Note that it is different from the OEM one and they warn you as such with a bulletin in the box. It mounts with two bolts and two nuts (included) where the OEM product mounts with 6 bolts. It fits right in though. Removal of the door panel never is as easy as it looks in videos. There were additional screws and different clips then appeared in the video. It took me about 2 hrs, taking my time and I'm reasoably handy. I'm sure I can do in now in an hour or less.

        The problem with the regulator design on this car is that it uses a bicycle brake type of cable that travels in and out of a cable housing. If the cable get the slightest bit frayed, it will jam up and fail. It gets exposed to moisture and the slightest rust on a cable will cause it to fray.

        I did not lubricate the cable or the tracks when I installed it but I suggest that you do. I may open up the door again when I'm not busy to get some grease on the cables. There was some lubricant on it from the factory but not much.

        The regulator works exactly like the original one, but like the original it probably will fail if the cables get wet and rust.

        Advance Auto stocked the product at their stores, which was handy

                      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.
