Window lifters are components that make it possible to raise and lower a window glass in a vehicle. In some cases, the lifter is manual, requiring a person to operate the movement of the regulator using a hand crank. More commonly today, a window lifter is an automated device that is activated by pressing a toggle switch or a button found on the arm of the car door.
With most vehicles, an automated window lifter is configured so the driver can control the movement of all the windows in the car, This effectively allows drivers to adjust front and back seat windows without using the controls situated by each of the passenger windows in the vehicle.
Door Window Regulator and Motor
Regulator and Motor will be sent together
he window regulator is a metal item that fits between the outer door shell and the interior door panel. It is a motor driven (part type 617) or manual driven piece that hooks to the window glass and pushes it up and pulls it down. It sometimes is sold with the motor but in other instances the motors are taken off and sold separately. If the customer orders the window regulator then you assume they do not need the motor. If you are on the phone with them, then ask do they need the motor. Make sure when ordering that you verify with the distributor that it is not bent and in good shape. Questions to ask: Do you need the motor with it or not? Is it electric or not? Shipping Cost is normally 10 - 15 dollars Dimensions: It is shaped like a boomerang or pair of opened scissors.
