Q: 2005 Mazda MPV driver window lift motor has broken gear. Can you remove and replace the motor.

asked by on

I Have the Door panel off but can't get the motor out from inside the door frame.

You will not be able to get the gear for the motor separate from the motor. If the regulator is broke then I recommend replacing the motor and regulator as an assembly.
