Re: IT'S FREEZING POWER WINDOW , 4000CS
Ouch - don't you hate that grinding noise. It's the cable saying, "OK,
I'm gonna break now. Start saving."
We found a used unit for my Quantum and bought it for $125. The guys
said we could buy the whole car for $275, but Dad said that was $150 more
bucks. It's funny, later I was car 6 in an 8-car no-fault pile-up in
Atlanta and Dad ended up buying that same car for the front end parts for
$275. That after we had paid $125 for the regulator. You should be able
to find a non-running (or more common - trashed auto tranny) 4000 for
around $250 if you look hard enough. Make sure it has power window
regulators and go to town.
