              All holes matched perfectly. The entire job takes about an hour. Greatest care is needed in taking the door panel off but it is not difficult.

                  This assembly was incredibly easy to install. What seemed like a daunting task of replacing my broken power window assembly only actually took me about 30 minutes...and that was only because I was taking my time! Heck, cleaning the residue from the duct tape that held my window up took longer than the installation! Awesome product!

                  Website did not clearly specify whether this was a front or rear operator. The cost is different for these and it would help if it was clear when ordering. No big deal, all went well and the store personnel were cery helpful.

                  OEM like fit and it works as advertised. It is made in Taiwan while the OEM version is made in USA with a Bosch motor. It is not flimsy but noticably not as thick. The metal and plastic connectors, cables are notvas solid compared OEM but for [$], I can't complain too much since OEM is about $260.

                      Great Price, Speedy Delivery. Many other reviews state that it takes 15-20 minutes to install. Thats just not true. The truth is that it's a great product and takes about 45 minutes.

                          It is not necessary to replace the motor when replacing the power window regulator. I would suggest taking your vehicle to a certified mechanic for a proper diagnosis before buying and having parts installed that may not (solve/be) the problem.

                          I opened up my door after my window fell and scratched my head. My mechanic did not call me back. I found a video on youtube for my 2003 Dakota which showed how to remove the door panel (phillips head), the wires to disconnect for the mirror, door locks and windows, and undo the door latch and lock, and remove the water barrier. Those were the hardest parts. The video also showed to have the window down to unbolt it from the bracket (10mm socket). Easy job and I am far from a mechanic. Dealer wanted over $225 just for the part, but I already knew they were far less expensive when I was looking for a how to video. If I can do it, so can you.

                          A:

                          Well this all depends on the skill level of whoever is removing or replacing the part. Some may have a harder time than others who have experience. I would 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.

                        • A:

                          The Haynes repair manual has absolutely NOTHING of value when it comes to the electronic windows. If you want to double check, borrow it from the library - otherwise, save yourself the money and google directions.

                        I just purchased this part and installed it but the window is not going all the way up. Is there something I can do to adjust the window on the track? Does the 2000 Dakota use a sash system for this type of adjustment?

                        Regarding window regulators - when it says front left I assume that is the drivers window. Is that correct?
