has anyone ever tried one of AC Delco's window motors and regulators for our cars??

Since I am from Canada, I cannot order what I need from GMPartsDirect.

I called my local GM dealer today to find out what it would cost, I almost fell out of my chair when he told me:

Regulator: $326.75
Motor: $232.25

Phoned up a good friend who works at a local OK Tire here, and he said no other motors are AS GOOD as the GM ones, and that I should stay away from any others.

I can get a AC Delco regulator, WITH the motor, for $182 here...quite the difference! AC Delco has always been known to be good, haven't they??

I hear ya. The guy told me how much and I said, your joking, he says no, that's actually giving you a bit of a discount to. I laughed really hard and said check the batteries in your calculator, I am not paying you $550 for some pieces of metal and plastic, that make my window go up and down.

I think I will just pick up new regulators and motors for both doors from AC Delco and be done with it. I am fussy and always want everything in top notch condition, so this way at least, I hopefully won't have to worry about my windows this summer, and can have some trouble free cruising.

Uh, I'm pretty sure the ones in the car ARE AC Delco... they supply many oem parts to GM. They should be fine.
