Problems with power windows can be a frustrating experience. In most cases, the usual suspect is the window regulator. In some cases, the window motor itself can present similar problems. If the window is taking longer and longer to open and close, don't automatically assume it's the regulator.

Replacing the window motor requires you to remove the door panel. See our article on Door Panel Removal for more information. It is also recommended that you disconnect the battery beforehand for safety.

The first step in replacing the power window motor is to disconnect the negative terminal (green arrow) on the battery.

Left and right Sides of car: Shown here is a close up of the power window motor. Press the tabs on the electrical connectors (yellow arrows) and pull them out of the motor. Next loosen and remove the three T30 Torx screws (green arrows) holding the motor to the frame. Pull the motor out and install the new one in its place. After reconnecting the battery, press the window switch in the up position. Let the window go all the way up and then holding it for two seconds. This will "teach" the switch when the window is all the way up.
