Information - Window regulator

Window lifter refers to the comfort system of the car. It provides additional comfort for both driver and passengers. In modern cars the mechanical window lifter, which uses a manual transmission, is almost forced out by the electric window lifters. A new type of window lifters is installed in the door frame, on a separate sub frame or on the body. Window lifter is a simple device. It consists of a drive mechanism, control system and the lifting mechanism. As for the drive mechanism, also named the motor-gearbox, it is a link between the electric motor, worm gear and toothed gear. It is a single unit, which serves to create the required force to move the window.

Lifting mechanism is necessary to provide the window travel. Depending on the design of this mechanism, there are several types of window lifters - cable, lever and rack. Regarding the most frequently used mechanism in modern cars, manufacturers mainly prefer cable and lever. It should also be said that modern electric window lifters have two types of control systems - direct and electronic. Direct control is a fairly simple design. It is implemented by three-position switch, which is included in the power circuit of the electronic engine. When the switch is moved to the first position, the engine rotates in one direction, when to the second position - the polarity and direction of the engine rotation change.

Electronic control is much more complicated. An input device, electronic control unit and execution unit provide its operation. Failure of the window lifter can result in inconvenience in terms of safe operation of car and comfort ensuring. If you need this spare part, it is easier and faster to order it through our online store, which also can offer a huge selection of auto parts, such as a damper strut, brake pads or interior filter.

What you need to know about window winder replacement: lifetime limits, common defects and their signs, tips and recommendations.

Window winder lifetime limit is not specified.

Most of all, the car part is replaced at damages of the cable and guides. Installation of a new power window mechanism may be required at breakage of the electric motor.

Troubles with the front or rear window winders are indicated by unspecific sounds (screeching, cracking, clicks etc.) during window opening or closing. Other defects signs are decrease or increase of window movement speed during operation of the window winder. The problem also lies in this mechanism in those cases, when the window moves skewed or falls into the door at all.

It is advised to apply to a service station for diagnostics in case of power windows breakdown. First of all, a specialist will check condition of fuses and relays. If the problem is not resided in them, visual inspection will continue with wiring and buttons of automatic windows raising mechanisms. Removal of the door trim cover will be necessary, and in some cars dismantling of the whole door will be required.

It is better to entrust replacement of the window winder to specialists, as special tools are necessary for this procedure performing. A specialist will dismantle and remove the door trim cover, disconnect the electric motor and remove the plug, in order to demount the window winder itself. During this, the glass should be held, and guides disconnected and removed. Installation of a new window winder is performed in the order, reverse to its demounting.

The left and right window winders, as a rule, are not replaced simultaneously, as there is an individual unit inside of each door. Most of all, the main (front left) window winder breaks down, as it is located from the driver’s side, thus is used more frequently.

Our customers ask

How to remove a window winder?

To remove the window winder assembly, its motor or the lifting mechanism, you need to demount the door handle, the armrest, the audio-system speaker and the door trim panel. The actions sequence during these works performing may differ according to the brand and model of the vehicle, as well as to the fact, which window winders are to be replaced – front or rear. To obtain more detailed instructions, study your vehicle technical documentation or watch a tutorial video. To replace the control unit or the button, there is no need to disassemble the door. Simply unbend clamps of the panel where buttons are mounted, using a flat screwdriver, carefully pry it up and remove in assembly with control unit. During replacement of the manual window winder there’s no need to demount the door trim panel also.

Where is the window winder fuse located?

Usually, the window winder fuse is mounted in the fuses box, which is located inside of the car cabin, under the glove box or the steering column. To learn the exact location of it in your car, and which number is it marked with, use technical documentation of the vehicle.

In models, where control function of window winders, sunroof, doors and cabin lighting, dashboard lighting and other systems are entrusted to the single unit, the fuse of comfort block or driver’s door block may be responsible for window winders proper operation.

Why don’t the window winders operate?

The window winder may be inoperable due to various reasons. If the device doesn’t react to button pressing, mostly, it’s because the fuse had blown out, the socket came off or got wet, the motor broke down or wires got cut.

Sometimes, front passenger or rear window winders are turned on from the driver’s door only. In this case, you should check the supply of electrical signal to control buttons of each winder. If only one window winder stopped working (left or right), possibly, a motor-reductor is broken down.

Sometimes, causes of unit improper operation are glass skewing, mechanism jamming or short-circuit. In this case, the window may move jerkily. To remove the defect, it is necessary to adjust mechanism settings, following the technical recommendations of the car manufacturer. At the components wear-out or their soiling, the windows may close slowly or inefficiently.
