    Ok here's the issue, just replaced my tailgate and used the parts out of my old one because they worked just fine in the old tailgate, i put the motor and the regulator in and for some reason the motor will raise the regulator nice and fast but then when going down,:confused: it crawls and i must help it down.

    Now if I disconnect the cable from the motor, you can see and hear the motor spinning freely both ways:laugh: , hook it back up and the same problem.:mad:

    By the way this is all with the window disconnected and nothing attached to the regulator and for some reason it won't go down, this is becoming really irritating because I would like to be able to start using my tailgate again without becoming frustated everytime I need to use it:angry1:

    Any help would be greatly appreciated and thanks ahead of time:bow:

    Have you tried to spray some lube onto the mechanism? Stay away from lithium grease/lube. It dries out and becomes very sticky.
