had my diver side go out twice, and passenger once...all three in the two years I owned a '99 Alero....the second time the driver side pooped out I just didn't even bother fixing it, sucked not being able to go through a drive through though

wow im a retard lol...i only looked at passnu's car

01-10-2005, 06:13 PM
what are the symptoms?

01-10-2005, 06:20 PM
rolling up crooked, scratching'll know it when it happens...what usually happens (according to the gm tech guy) is that the track that is used breaks and the it burns up the motor trying to move the window up and down a broke track

retard thing is...the track is a 75 cent part...motor $200....PUT A BETTER QUALITY TRACK ON IT.....but, oh well....

yeah i think youll defintly know. i heard two loud pops/cracks two different days. thats when it started.

01-10-2005, 07:11 PM
Mine pops and cracks all the time. I hope im not going to have problems.

01-10-2005, 07:14 PM
well, the second time when i rolled it up all the way it was a pretty loud pop/crack. then every time i tried to roll it down after that it would start to grind then. then i just stopped touching it and got it fixed.

^^^^ *iagree* that's what I remember

if it starts to sound's broke :)

01-11-2005, 12:38 PM
Its broke then. Im just gonna waite till it really poops on me then replace it. Looks like an easy install but $65? damn

the first time mine went out (drivers side - 7 months after I bought the car) it had some symptoms... this time, none at all. I just went out to the car a week ago or so and it was dead.. :(

01-12-2005, 02:38 PM
Mine just cracks and pops when i roll it up. It goes up fine and down fine its just the sound it makes.

01-13-2005, 11:04 PM
mine does the same ... for2 years now and no replacement

Yup, the window motors/regulators on GM vehicles SUCK AZZ!!! Unreal! I have an 02 GAGT, and I have replaced BOTH the driver's and passenger side window motors and regulators 4 or 5 times, NO JOKE! I've, knock on wood had NO problems with the car, EXCEPT for the damn windows! I just ran out of warranty, and I seriously considered buying it JUST for the windows. I don't anticpate having the car beyond 50k miles, so I didn't bother getting it.... Do they make aftermarket regulators that work better than the crappy GM ones???
