[V6-12v] Driver side door window - cable or regulator?

BTDT last summer on my '92 100S. Wound up replacing the entire unit, not 
just the cable. Its not too bad a job. Basically remove inner door panel, 
disconnect window from regulator unit (held on by a clip), remove a couple 
of bolts, unplug the unit, and pull out. Took me maybe an hour to complete. 
Manuevering the regulator unit in an out of the doorframe was the most 
difficult part of the job. Now my driver side window opens / closes about 
twice as fast as the others in the car. I think I bought my regulator 
assembly from Blau for ~$120 last year. HTH.
