POWER WINDOW REPAIR
Is Your Window Stuck?
We Know the Culprit
If your window is stuck up or down it may be your window regulator (or motor). If that is the case, you may need a window regulator repair.
What is a Window Regulator?
The Mechanics of your Windows
Window regulators are located inside each of the vehicle doors, underneath the auto glass. The glass physically rests on this device, and it is moved up and down and into place using a series of small, interconnected parts working as a unit. Over time, these parts can break and need to be replaced, requiring a careful repair process.
When this happens, there are usually three options:
- A dealership for your vehicle manufacturer
- Service at a professional auto glass repair shop
- Repair at an auto body shop
Dealerships and certified technicians have costly tools required to do a window regulator replacement, which is unavailable to other businesses or individuals. So, usually, it’s best to take the car to a professional auto glass repair shop for this kind of work.
What Should I Expect?
The Four Step Process for Window Regulator Repair
- Dismantle the inner part of the vehicle door and inspect.
- Remove the old regulator and all of the associated components to be set aside.
- Install a new regulator (including the mechanism and smaller parts)
- Replace the auto glass and ensure the rubber seals are sitting correctly.
- Inspect and test, re-adjusting as needed.
If the window fails to operate correctly during testing, it is re-inspected and adjusted until the tests pass.
After any windshield replacement, we encourage recalibration of your driver safety systems. These are required by law and are usually covered by your insurance. We’ll help you schedule an appointment to calibrate your vehicle’s windshield in our shop
if we are doing a mobile installation.
Overall, the whole windshield replacement procedure may take anywhere from an hour to an hour and a half.
Don’t forget, we provide free mobile service. Call today, and we’ll get you scheduled.
