need to replace a motor anyways so i will give this a shot when i get around to it
great info! might have to give this a try soon as my drivers side window is being a bitch with this exact same problem. kudos on the work man!
coming back in 2008...
dam wish i found this eariler its pooring rain out.
but gonna give it a shot tommorrow hopefully it the rain blows in from the pass side and the d-side stays dry.
ok first off, i like to thank the one who turned me on to this particular thread, who had email of tobasco ant.and the person who made this tread origianally. you have my upmost gratitude. myself and my gfriend dug into her 98 sunfire before we found this thread and i can tell you, that you can remove the window motor without taking out the window., you have to undo the window off the two bolts at the bottom, then have someone hold it up or move it down for whatever position you need to do the rest. to replace the window motor took us 2 and half hours to take apart and 1 and half to put back together, then found out that the window wouldnt shut properly, so we tore it apart and done the regulator drill out part and that took us 3 hours, we still are adjusting it and getting ready to put the inside door part back maybe tomorrow or next day. anyway, still wanna thank you all for the info. was worthwhile joining this forum. we plan on doin the drivers side at a later date, the drill out part cause it dont close properly either.i forgot to take pictures, sorry.
good to hear it worked. yeah, thank razz for doing this write up. its priceless!
if you get around to it, you should post some pics of your convertible and fill out your registry
I finally got around to pulling my driver's door apart to do this "fix" (as well as others.. door latch was broken)... but it looks like on the 2000 model, the stock holes are drilled just a tad lower, so there's not enough meat there on the rear height limiter to be able to drill the two extra holes.
I did notice mine was bent pretty badly... so maybe that (in addition to lowering the door height... had two washers in there, didn't line up), will fix my window issue. We'll see in a few hours!
Got mine back together... it fixed the height adjustment (no longer closes with the window onto the side of the top)... thanks!! I didn't have to drill holes, but I did straighten the metal bracket and that seems to have done the trick.
I have an issue with the window motor.. but I'll make a separate post about that.
