i looked at that...I just cant seem to get the new motor to line up and the gear to fit right.


ALL THE pictures i look at...the holes are all different.....like in the link...the motors both have different holes for different years.

Did you get the right motor? The other day at the auto part store, I told the guy, plugwire set 4605 and he gave me set 4606.

Are you sure that the counter guy didn't give you the wrong one and you didn't notice the number being wrong?

Can you take it back anyway? You should have gotten the Dorman. (Lots of problems with the OEM design.)

You should be able to rotate the motor around where the gear attaches. There is only one position where the holes will line up.

Just checking to make sure. Even the greatest of minds can make the most simple mistakes.

Are you using the shbox method with the regulator still attached to the door? If so, you'll need to get a mirror inside the door to see. There should be a hole in the middle of the regulator, near the gear rack, that accepts the shaft that the motor gear is on. From there, just rotate around that point until the holes line up.

If you get the gear and shaft in the right place, you should be able to line up the holes.

One other idea... Do you still have the old motor? Check it to confirm which holes were used before.

Highly recommend you think about a relay or getting the window rewire kit someone on here sells.

How did you remove the old motor in the first place?

More importantly WHY? Its so much easier to just pull the whole regulator out and put it in a vice. Thats if your NOT replacing the regulator with it (which is easier than all of the above). I'd never replace a motor with the regulator in the door, too much can go wrong.

I've done this, and would/will do it again. It's very simple on these cars. And once those access holes are drilled and there are no motor rivits to remove, future replacements are even easier.

I really don't see how it could be easier to remove the whole regulator, at least in the case of these cars.

I used to replace them on the regulator but am now a supporter of the shbox method. The more the regulator rivets are removed, the more the rivet holes are worn, which can lead to tears in the panel.
