1999 Pontiac Sunfire Power Window Regulator and Motor Replacement
Replacing a power window regulator and motor assembly is a bit tedious, but not impossible with the right tools. Cheaper cars like Chevy Cavalier and Pontiac Sunfire 1995-2005 have components riveted to the door. That’s really the worst part. Drill out the rivets and pop them out of the door panel. Extract the assembly, mount a new motor or a new assembly with regulator and motor (Recommended). Sorry for the video imperfections, but I wanted to get this uploaded for anyone else trying to do this job and not knowing for sure what all is needed to be done (like me!). But we got’r done. Have fun! By the way, these parts are relatively cheap – for motor or -60 for complete assembly with regulator and motor. Also, be sure the window tracks inside the door are in place and lubed with WD-40. If using your original regulator, grease up the slide rails to prevent jamming or strained operation (which can burn out a motor).
