Replacing Power Window Regulator/Motor on 97-05 Buick Century
Here is how to replace a window regulator and motor in a 97-05 Buick Century. This procedure is similar in most vehicles. Sometimes the manufacturer uses rivets instead of bolts, but in that case you can just drill out the rivets and use nuts and bolts if there is room, or just replace the rivets if you have a rivet gun. This part only cost $50 (free shipping) from 1aauto.com for this application, and only took approximately 35 minutes to install. If you have any questions, just use the comments section or message me!
