POWER WINDOW REGULATORS

WHAT ARE WINDOW REGULATORS

The  mechanism that moves the window up and down inside your vehicle's door  is called a "window regulator" or "window lift mechanism".  How the unit  works is a function of its design 

WINDOW REGULATOR TYPES

Cable Style Window Regulator Double Rail &  Single Rail

Scissors Style Window Regulator

Single Arm Window Regulator  

There are  other types of regulators, but they are not used as widely as these  four types. 

WINDOW REGULATOR PROBLEMS

Cable style window  regulators most often stop working due to cable failure or cable guide failure.  Often the glass is no longer supported by the cable system and  falls to the down position.  Pressing the window switch activates the  window motor, but the window motor can't move the glass because the  window regulator can't function any longer.
 

WHAT DOES IT COST TO REPAIR A WINDOW REGULATOR

The typical cost, including parts, labor and sales taxes to replace an average window regulator ranges from $129 to $179.  A few are less expensive and some are much more expensive depending on the make, model, and year of the vehicle.
