Power Window Motor

If it isn't one of those newfangled cable types, the motor is easy to take out. The mechanism is held in the door with 3 or 4 soft aluminum rivets. They are easy to chisel off but first be sure to drive out the little steel pins (evidently they used pop rivets) in the middle of the rivets. these pins are hard and don't chisel very well but when out, the rivet heads pop right off. Before you do that though you need to unbolt the glass from the riser arm and remove it from the door so it doesn't weigh down the mechanism. It requires some head scratching but isn't all that complicated and is actually a pretty easy operation. I always approach this type of complicated task with the thought that they got this confounded thing together, so I can get it apart!

When putting it al back together replace the rivets with machine screws and nuts w/ loctite.

Thanks...it seems that it must have the rivets, or else everyone wouldn't be charging for almost 2 hours work. Once I chisel the little stuff off, is it just screwed back in then? I have the motor but nothing came with it, and you can see where the electrical connections are to be made, and then there seems to be the spots for some sort of screws, so...
I guess like you said...I'll just start pulling it apart and hope for the best.
Thanks...George

It all is pretty obvious when you get in there. Motor power wires can only go in one way and the rivets are the only screwy part of the system. You won't have any problems.
