Tailgate Window Regulator Replacement Service

What is the Tailgate Window Regulator all about?

Power windows can now even be found on the tailgates of trucks and SUVs. This component takes the rotary motion of the power window’s motor and turns it into a linear version that can move the window up and down. It is a scissor-style window lift that moves vertically in the window tracks. If the window regulator breaks or seizes, the window will not move up. If the regulator on your tailgate is binding, the window will not go up evenly and may stop before reaching the top.

Keep in mind:

  • A weak power window motor can produce the same symptoms as a failing window regulator.

Our recommendation:

The tailgate window regulator does not require regular maintenance, but regular car washes may prevent some dirt and grime from getting inside your tailgate. If your tailgate window is not going up and down smoothly, have it diagnosed and repaired by one of our expert mechanics.

What common symptoms indicate you may need to replace the Tailgate Window Regulator?

  • Window on the tailgate moves very slowly or stops short of closing
  • Tailgate window doesn’t go up evenly on both sides

How important is this service?

If the tailgate window is stuck open, it is important to have it repaired soon since the weather elements can get inside your vehicle, and your belongings will be left unsecured. However, if it’s stuck in a closed position, you can wait until it’s a convenient time to get your tailgate window regulator fixed.
