Question Window motor repair

I am replacing the drivers door window motor. The old one melted. I went to the junk yard and bought a used one. I removed the old one with a little difficulty. There is a coil band spring that fell down when i pulled the motor from the gear. i found where it sits but do not know if i have to put tension on it when i reasemble the window. Any help. Any other words of advice. THanks

The coil is off of the window regulator. I am suprised that you didn't get injured when you removed the motor. Usually the spring loaded arm of the window regulator will slam down and smack the crap out of your arm. I usually get the window in the full up position before removing the motor, then block the regulator arm so that it cannot move.

I think that you would be better to go back to the wreckers and get the whole unit and replace it. Easier than trying to patch your stuff back together.
