Lance,

Is this you? http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eB...m=140221891501

If so, I'll buy one there -- thanks for solving a pesky problem for all of us!

Really wish this was all I needed... Took the door panel off and noticed the cable snapped/frayed/super-wound the spool.

I'm hoping that someone will come up with a broken front regulator that they will send me. I don't want to tear into my car just to see what it would take as I need it going as my main vehicle right now. So if someone has a front regulator laying around let me know and we'll work something out, till I get one .....

Will this kit help me?

Drivers side rear window failed to go up or down - pressing the swtich activates the motor which remains on until the opposite direction on the switch is chosen.
Took the door panel off and the glass was wedged in the shut position with a piece of wood!!!!!

If this kit will solve the problem then please put me down for 1 set.

I'm afraid that you may be past fixing that regulator, look and see if the cable is still there. I think that with the motor running until the other direction is selected means that the cable is broken, if it is broken this repair kit won't fix it.

need that regulator!

I live here in Tampa fl and my back passenger window went today.
How do I go about getting this kit? I hear the motor running in the window but it won't budge.
Thank you

Lynda
