Window regulator

I've usually had to replace the regulator.  I wanted to try a repair 
but found it beyond my abilities. IIRC, getting the cable out was the 
hard part.
I've had good luck with used regulators (haven't bought a new 
regulator yet - haven't had a used one fail yet - although I may just 
be lucky), I just disassembled and relubed it.  The hardest part has 
been getting the door trim off the door without breaking little bits 
of 17 year old brittle plastic.  Take car to remember the position of 
the spacers for the door frame.
