Replacing Electric Window Motor Assembly T30


Changing electric window motor/regulator in T30

The front passenger side electric window was going up insanely slow and super laboured in my T30. I tried all the basic fixes, making sure there wasn’t a seal pinched, greasing the rail or that the window itself needed some loving.

I didn’t find any obvious issues, so I thought the motor in the electric window winder must have given up.

I went to the wreckers and picked one up for $30 and installed it in about 30 minutes. It’s a pretty easy process, but I thought I’d write a guide, just in case someone else is having the same issues and is a little unsure on the procedure.

This is what the part looks like. You buy the whole regulator, not just the motor part.

Image

First step is to remove the arm rest. Insert a flat bladed screw driver here and gently twist it. Be careful as you can damage this part by using a small screw driver or by being overly aggressive. Once the armrest is off, unplug the electric window switch by using a flat-bladed screwdriver on the clip parts.

Image

Undo the 4 screws along the armrest

Image

Remove the handle by pulling the most forward end towards you, then sliding the other end towards the back of the car. Be gentle with this part as the clips are pretty weak.

Image

You can now remove the entire door lining by unclipping the press-studs at the bottom and side by pulling towards you. Then lifting the lining upwards and off. Be sure to unplug the door light (if you have one). The plastic weather seal on the inside is stuck on with a glue-like substance that gets absolutely everywhere! Be careful with where you let this stuff touch as it is hard to remove from fabrics and porous surfaces. Once you have it off remove the two screws holding the brace in place.

Image

If you still have the ability to move the window, you should put it down to this position, so you can get access to the area where the window is fixed to the lifting device. The window itself is glued to the mounting bracket and you can’t pull it out without a lot of effort (or by smashing the window like the young wrecker did to my new part!)

Image

You can undo these screws now and carefully lift the window upwards. Be very careful to keep the window level, as it has a tendency to skew sideways and take itself out of the guiding strips along the sides (I learned this the hard way).

Image

You can undo the motor part now by undoing these three screws, then lifting slightly to allow the clips to come out, then carefully remove the whole assembly.

Image

I plugged in my new motor/regulator assembly and the window switch and adjusted the height of the attaching point to match the height of the one I just removed. This makes it so much easier to re-attach the window to the lifting piece.

Image

Screw this piece back in place then do the entire procedure in reverse.

Note: I greased up the railing a bit, just to help the motor slide, then I lubed up the rubber guide rails on the sides.
