Default 1993 power window problems

Hello All,
My windows wont roll up, the motor is working, the teeth on the regulator appear to be good. The truck has been sitting for a year or longer. I'm thinking the gear on the motor is worn out. Can that gear be replaced? also I noticed the regulator and motor are mounted with pop rivets. Do I drill those out and replace them with bolts? the truck is a 1993 model. Help me out if you have any info on this problem. Thanks Pete

Yes the rivets are usually replaced with bolts.

I'm just going to replace the motor and regulator. I found a set for under $100. Hope there worth the trouble to change them out. I'm not a big fan of ebay, but its a work truck. Thanks for the info

Sounds like you need $2 worth of plastic bushings from the help section. There are three per side. They are essentially shear pins between the motor and regulator. Once the door panel is off, you have three Phillips head screws left.

That you can drill out to provide easy access to the screws.

I hope to get a chance to tear into it today. Between work and the snow storm we got. I haven't had a chance to look at it. I'll figure something out this weekend. Got a heatwave coming through. Looks like its going to hit the mid 40's. Thanks for the info. Oh, if it is the plastic bushings, any info on where I can get them? NAPA,Auto Zone,Ebay, Again thanks for the help

Ok, here's where I'm at. I drilled out the 4 rivets, pulled out the regulator and motor. There was 3- 5/16 bolts that held the motor to the regulator. 2 of the bolt holes had like a small flange where the 5/16 bolts went in, there is a hole in the center where the gear shaft for the motor gear goes. The last 5/16 bolt that attaches the motor to the regulator was oblonged like you could adjust the motor closer to the teeth on the regulator but with the flange sticking through the other 2 holes and the center hole for the gear motor shaft to ride in there is no way to adjust the motor closer to the teeth on the regulator. The only plastic piece I seen on the whole thing is a square piece that sits in the track at the bottom of the window. The 5/16 bolts I'm referring to are the socket size that fit the bolt. Am I missing something? I didn't see anywhere those bushing would go?

There is no adjustment for the gears.


After you remove those three small bolts, the plate/motor can move to reveal a cavity where these three bushings go. Most likely, that cavity is currently filled with the remains of old bushings. Scoop out all those greasy chunks, put some wheel bearing grease in there to hold each bushing up right. Next, hold your tongue right and prepare for minor cussing as you try and work the motor flange (for lack of a better word) in between those bushings.
