    Passenger side window regulator

    This winter I've got a few little things to address with my car. Of all the things on the list, I think it's the window regulator that might be most elusive.
    The passenger-side window had been slow for quite some time, but last week it finally tapped out and stopped at the mid-way point.
    I've yet to pull the door panel off, but I ordered the plastic guide/shuttles just in case it's something that simple.
    However, if it's a bigger issue, does anyone have a source that they recommend for refurbishing window regulators?

    I used Power Window Repair in Arizona. They did repair and reinforcement on my 2013 and it's all working well. No complaints, would recommend.

    Lack of maintenance is what kills them. It may be too late now so just an FYI.

    Interesting point, dave.

    What should be done to be good maintenance?

    Thank you

    Lightly cleaning and greasing the cables and track goes along way in keeping them alive. You can also get some rubber seal conditioner that doubles as a lube. That helps out with less friction on the glass and seals. I use some stuff I have left over from when I had a BMW. I think it's called gummi pflege.
