No one has any advice for me?
This is a discussion on I Think the motor went on my driver's window within the Interior Tech forums, part of the General Discussion category; On my way home from work, I had my windows open, went to close it and it doesn't go up ...
On my way home from work, I had my windows open, went to close it and it doesn't go up It has done this in the past, but after a couple of minutes, it would go up no problem, not today. I take the door panel off, hubby takes out his multipurpose voltmeter tool and finds that there is power going to the wires, so it must be the motor. (mind you, when I pulled the switch plate off of the door, there was a bit of smoke - figures ) So he takes the cover off the motor and pieces fall out after he removes the motor after he twists it to put the window back up.
My question is, how difficult is it to replace this motor? I'm really not looking forward to is since it looks like the inner door panel is riveted in place and/or the bolt heads that hold it in place look to be attached to the window itself - is this correct? Anyone have really good detailed instructions before we just dive into it after I get the part?!
i would like to know also...because my passenger side motor is shot
88 silverado reg. cab,step side:lowered 3/4",cowl hood.billet grill,smooth front bumper,roll pan,shaved tailgate,bad cover.Engine mods:underdrive pulleys,k&n filter,hooker headers,flowmaster exhaust,and performance chip
85 astro van:stock,project..soon to be bagged and shaved
i bought window motor and regulator from CK Resto and replaced both sides. just followed the instructions they sent with it, it was pretty simple. the most time consuming piece was drilling out all the rivets. i replaced mine using bolts instead of rivets in case i ever have to do this again.
Annie I wish that I had more info for you. It should not be that hard. I would plan taking a day to replace taking your time.

it is not that bad really, just the time it takes drilling all the rivets and then getting the right bolts. you'll have to rivet the black control houseing plate or use sheet metal scres for that, bolts are to big and you can't get the control bezel back on.
I haven't did this in a few years but the complete inner door panel comes out, but you have to have somone holding the window up when you do it, or it will fall down and break....or you can tape it up real good if you're on your own....once the panel is out you have access to it....it's pretty easy after the rivets are drilled out
Stupid question, but if the window is stuck down........can you still get to all the bolts to loosen the window from the down position?
