any sugestions on how to remove the c-clip? i dont want to break it,but am having troubles removing it with my smallest flat head i have,and if i do manage to break it what are the chances of it still working without a c-clip?
just got my front drivers side done!i had major problems with only two things,one being i didnt have a 1/2 inch dril bit so i had so "create" my own hole with a smaller drill bit,and two i had issues lining everything up once it was all put back together when i was bolting it back to my door my brother had to help me on that one lol. other than that it was a piece of cake! it probably saved me hundreds! i still have my drivers side door to do,hopefully it wont take me as long as it did today but with me once i do it once i can usually do it much faster the second time.Autozone,advance auto parts and orielys didnt have the gear plugs,they all wanted to sell me the whole window motor and the regulator wich is BS they were all asking $70-80.00 so i politely told all of them to go shove it up there you know what.I called napa and they had some,but only one set so i said what the hell i might as well do one now and the rest later.They had them for $8.99 wich wasnt too bad.They were really freindly and it actually seemed like they knew what they were talking about.Well i feel like i have written a book so im out!thanks everyone!
You know, I had to replace my entire motor on the front door (quit altogether), so I went to the junkyard and got a used motor, and did the bearing swap before it was installed, and it's going like it's a brand new motor.
Ironically, as soon as I did that, my rear windows went out in succession. Driverside Rear went out in May, Passengerside rear just started acting up.
Thanks again for doing this writeup, the money you'd save in this alone would pay for an elite membership.
I'm guessing they are made out of a soft material that gives when it gets to the end of the travel and saves the gear teeth (shock absorber). It crumbles rather than staying in pieces to allow the gear to continue to rotate saving the gear teeth when they fails.Just wanted to say that you can go to Walmart and get the ball bearing youuse to shoot in a sling shot and use them. i think I payed like $5.00 for a pack and you will have enough for all 4 doors. they are steel and won't wear out. I did mine about 4yrs ago and haven't had a problem out of them yet. Very good thread wiyh all the pic.
