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!
What not to do when replacing a power window motor
When replacing a power window motor on a newer cable style regulator you
should NOT let the cable wheel get out of the transmission housing. We are
all human though so this video shows you what to do if you make this
mistake. This video is universal and applies to any make, model or year
with a cable style window regulator and power window motor.

This video shows how a window regulator works in a car or truck. It also
shows how easily they can break and why they have to be replaced.
Buick Century Odometer
Fixed a non-working odometer gear selection indicator. Problem is 4
resistors on the back of the instrument panel cluster (ipc) that come
dislodged over time due to a manufacturing defect.
1999 Pontiac Sunfire Power Window Regulator and Motor Replacement
Replacing a power window regulator and motor assembly is a bit tedious, but
not impossible with the right tools. Cheaper cars like Chevy Cavalier and
Pontiac Sunfire 1995-2005 have components riveted to the door. That's
really the worst part. Drill out the rivets and pop them out of the door
panel. Extract the assembly, mount a new motor or a new assembly with
regulator and motor (Recommended). Sorry for the video imperfections, but I
wanted to get this uploaded for anyone else trying to do this job and not
knowing for sure what all is needed to be done (like me!). But we got'r
done. Have fun! By the way, these parts are relatively cheap - $30 for
motor or $50-60 for complete assembly with regulator and motor. Also, be
sure the window tracks inside the door are in place and lubed with WD-40.
If using your original regulator, grease up the slide rails to prevent
jamming or strained operation (which can burn out a motor).
