Window Regulator Slider Replacement Tip

2142 Views 1 Reply 2 Participants Last post by  jssaab
Driver door window fell down last week, and instead of replacing the regulator sliders with SAAB ones (or aftermarket) I took my mechanic's advice and bought the Volvo ones. They're a little more expensive (shop around - I later researched and discovered that the BMW one is the same article, too: $1.70 ea from, Just like their vacuum hoses, the Volvo ones are what we should use because they don't wear out. The hoses don't, but I suspect the sliders eventually do. *Must remember to lub them after installation. The passenger side I'd done using SAAB sliders three years ago began to squeal, so I re-opened that side for some 'lub and attention'.

Planning to get a new window regulator kit, and I'm currently looking for How-to write-up about it...well thanks then for the tip, at least i knew now that i should lub the sliders after installation.
suggest you open the door up first, usually the regulators are ok and its jsut the rollers ( sliders) as above that break. And the kits do not have new ones so you have to get them anyway.
