    Is there an easy way to realign the marks on a rear window regulator?(manual type) The glass was coming up uneven because the left side arm was 3 or 4 teeth behind the right. Does this mean the regulator is shot? or can I "reset" it? Does this question make any sense ?? Anyone had this problem?

    Thanks in advance.
    Mike

    It makes way too much sense..... I tried for days to reset mine with no luck. I got mine new from the dealer for 75$, only because Ik new the markup was about 50% and I decided to be as full of it as they were, so shop around and if you need it now I suggest putting it back together and not rolling it down, til you find one.....hope this helps, sorry.....

    Sounds like there is a tooth or two missing from one of the geared plates that lift the window. Mine had the top couple of teeth messed up from getting cranked hard to seal the window up real tight. It would just click when it got to the top. I took mine apart and welded a bit of metal back onto the boogered teeth and filed them to the right shape. Fixed it right up. [​IMG]

    You'll need to figure out what is stripped, then realign everything and then fix the teeth. (Or just buy another regulator assembly). [​IMG]

    yup wish I had a buddy like you to put it all together when it was junk...... they can be rebuilt if you have the ability and the means... no matter what it's a pain, hang in there

    It's easy! You just apply the cost savings towards tools! [​IMG] Eventually, there's no room to work in the garage, 'cause you have too many toys in there. [​IMG]
