1992 Volkswagen Corrado Q&A

1992 Volkswagen Corrado Question: window regulator

What is the purpose of the window regulator? Also my window came down and will not go up, the cable has it jammed in the door. What do I buy to fix the problem? -
Answer 1
The window regulator manages the power window motor's connection to the actual up-and-down action of the window. It's often a cable threaded through a metal superstructure. If the window is down and won't come back up, you probably will have to replace the entire window regulator--I've had the problem in a Nissan and couldn't fix what was wrong with the regulator. Had to get a whole new one. -
Answer 2
Your window regulator has failed in a very typical fashion. Other than replacement window regulators are not repairable.Just specify which door it is for and whether it is manual or power windows. -
