already checked it....unfortunately it doesnt address the issue i'm having. I should have clarified....i have the panel off the door and am trying to get the glass into the upper frame but it is stuck at the halfway point. The glass needs to be all the way up to unscrew the bolts holding the old assembly in. Even pulling up on the glass strongly will not work.

Have you determined what happened with the regulator yet? Pulley broke? Wire hopped off pulley? Wire broke? Gearing mechanism broke?

You may get somewhere using a mirror to check out each pulley -- to find the exact place the cable is hung up/snagged.

Just cut the pulley wire that runs the regulator and get it out. The window will then go up.

Goldlifter,

I'm going to try replacing the front left regulator myself. Any words of advice? I'm using after market parts, which saves me $250. If I can do it myself I'll save another $150 in labor.

Thanks for any help you can send my way.

Regards,
