    If your asking about the regulator cable that comes from the motor LMC Truck should have it.

    I use my cordless drill and twist too. It gets stuck and I have to giggle the glass or pick up on it then it works again. It didn't do that befor the cable went bad

    Maybe regulator is bad. LMCtruck.com does offer those parts if you need them

    sounds like the cable has some corrosion or something in it not preventing it from moving freely. I'd try replacing that first seeing as it would be the cheapest rout, Then move on to the regulator and rails. I had the same issue about two years ago. I thought the motor was going out, but to my surprise after i replaced the cable and lubed up the regulator it all worked like new!

    Don't forget, the cable runs to a transmission on the regulator that converts the turns to a gear that then raises the window. You may need to remove the cable from the transmission then make sure it turns. If it turns fine, you may need to look at the transmission and regulator to find the real issue.
