    Whats the easiest way to disconnecet a power window wiring harness?

    I have an '80 with worn motors and I have regular doors to put on. I dont want to cut the wires, since I want to be able to put PW back in later on.

    Thanks.

    They are plugs under the dash on each side of the truck, at least there was on my 86 jimmy. They are up there a little ways, and the drivers side is a little harder to get to.

    Why not just rebuild the motors

    Ok, thanks for the info. I was just too lazy to do wire tracing the other day. /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    The doors are pretty beat up. The drivers side has a bunch of bondo covering a dent and the glass never did roll up right. The pass. side door has rust in it.

    I have two straight doors that are manual windows and door locks. I wonder how hard it is to transfer all the power window bracketry and motor into non-power doors?

    I'm going the opposite of what you're doing. My 78K5 has manual doors and looks, and I'm transfering the power windows/locks from a 79 pickup. So far, getting everything out has been easy. I've replaced the manual regulator before in the passenger door. Comparing the two, I don't see any problems doing the swap, my way or yours. Hope this helps.
