CAUTION
Do NOT place your hands or fingers in the sector gear area where they can be pinched by the small movements of the regulator linkage.

  1. If possible, move the window to the fully closed position.

  3. Remove the door trim panel and window regulator assembly, as described earlier in this section.
  4.  


CAUTION
Failure to clamp the sector gear to the mounting plate when removing the motor can result in injury.

  1. Secure the sector gear and mounting plate with a C-clamp. This will prevent a sudden and forceful movement of the regulator when the motor is removed.
  2.  
  3. Remove the 3 mounting screws that secure the motor gear box to the regulator.
  4.  
  5. Remove the motor from the regulator.

To install:
  1. Install the replacement motor on the regulator by positioning the motor's gear box so that it engages the regulator's sector teeth.
  2.  

A slight rotational or rocking motion may be necessary to bring the 3 motor gear box screw holes into proper position.

  1. Install the 3 gear box screws and one tie-down bracket screw, if applicable.
  2.  
  3. Tighten the mounting bolts to 50-74 inch lbs. (5.6-8.5 Nm).
