How Long Does a Window Motor / Regulator Assembly Last?

window motor

There are a number of different perks that come with modern cars that most people will fail to appreciate. Most people have never had to roll a window down with a crank handle due to the fact that most cars have power windows. In order to get the window up and down, the window motor/regulator assembly will have to be fully functional. The regulator will help to power the motor when needed. If the regulator and motor assembly do not come on and work as intended, then it will be hard to get the window up and down. Every time that you push the window switch in your car, the window motor/regulator assembly will have to act.

Since this part of a car is not checked on a regular basis, the only time that you will have any contact with it is when it is broken. There are a number of things that can lead to a window motor/regulator assembly getting broken. Finding the issues that this part of a car has before it completely goes out can help a person to avoid being completely without their power windows.

For the most part, there will be a variety of different things that you will notice when this part of your car is starting to go out. Avoiding these signs can put you in a very compromising position. If you are unsure if whether or not the issues you are experiencing are being caused by the window regulator and motor assembly, then you will have to take the car into a professional. They will be able to diagnose the issues that you are experiencing and get you the right repairs done.

Here are some of the things that you will notice when it comes time to get a new window motor/regulator assembly:

  • The window is rolling down very slowly
  • The window will not roll down all of the way.
  • The inability to roll down the window at all

If any of the above symptoms are present with your vehicle, have a certified mechanic replace the bad window motor/regulator assembly to eliminate any further complications.
