  3. Window Regulator Help

    How much cheaper and what's involved with the repair kit? Would think getting one from a scrappy or used/new one from EBay or somewhere else is best bet but like I said I don't know whats involved in the repair kit
  4. Window Regulator Help

    Sounds odd wonder what caused that unless you say it's just cheap but on a 4 year old car? You use it often? Did you change it yourself or get a garage to do it for you ?
  5. Window Regulator Help

    Cheers Yeah I found a tutorial on ehow website to help guide me through taking the door panel off and replacing the regulator! Was better to practice on the car at the scrappy first ha, trial and error and it didnt matter if we broke anything. Cheeky pikee git tho when I went yesterday he quoted me £30 went to pay today he said how much did I quote I said £30 and he said oh we'll I thought you mean just the motor and not the regulator :// pikee weren't going to budge after an argument, he had the part I needed which I had to take off myself and they charge £1 to use the hiviz jacket on site Oh well glad it's all finished now, such a pain in the bum ha doesn't effect the workings off the car but very annoying if you smoke ;) Just hope the new regulator/motor holds up, had to change it twice on my old 306, French electrics

  12. The Window Plague

  13. Looking to replace the window regulator/motor in my Focus, front drivers side 3 door, 2002 model. I'm off down the scrappy tomorrow to pick up a regulator/motor from a 2003 3door Focus. Will this still fit? Are they the same regardless of year? Also any tips, advice or tutorial on how to replace the regulator would be appreciated or if anyone knows where I can find this out anywhere :)
