Alright we’ll see how well this works.
First off credit to Tyler Nixon for spending the time to find a motor that will work for our cars.
Then parts list.August 25, 2016 at 8:49 pm #1154
And it looks as if I can only upload 1 image at at time so I’ll just continue each step a new post.
Step 1 remove door panel. (I didn’t realize the camera setting so the first couple are B&W)August 25, 2016 at 8:50 pm #1156
Remove regulator assemblyAugust 25, 2016 at 8:52 pm #1158
Step 3 is to note and mark up the regulator on the motor alignment.August 25, 2016 at 8:54 pm #1160
3b is just the back side and also shows that if in the same orientation the new motor that is smaller should not have any issues with clearance.August 25, 2016 at 8:58 pm #1162
Step 4 release the spring tension and make note of how the spring is installed for reassembly.August 25, 2016 at 9:00 pm #1164August 25, 2016 at 9:01 pm #1166
5 remove original motor and fit up new one. Here is where it gets interesting.August 25, 2016 at 9:11 pm #1168
You’ll notice the new motor has a clearance issue with the regulator and it’s gonna need to be cut up a bit. (Tyler mentioned that no cutting was needed when he did his, I could not locate a motor position that would fit without cutting.)August 25, 2016 at 9:15 pm #1170
So a lot happened between these pics sorry. But you can see the section that was removed for the motor clearance. Then new holes drilled for the new mounting of the motor.August 25, 2016 at 9:19 pm #1172
This next step is probable optional especially if you don’t have a welder. I welded up the relief cuts. This pic is like mid weld too.August 25, 2016 at 9:22 pm #1174
After looking at it I think it’s a before weld pic. But anyway paint it, grease it and final install of the motor including spring tension.August 25, 2016 at 9:26 pm #1177
Reinstall the regulator assemblyAugust 25, 2016 at 9:28 pm #1179
Reinstall the glass. Now I didn’t take any pics of the wiring but I mounted both relays to the inside of the removable panel (were the wires come out).August 25, 2016 at 9:35 pm #1181
Follow this wiring for the motor wiring. Helpful tip is to save the last 2 wires to hook up for the motor to relays wires these reverse polarity so it doesn’t matter if they are “backwards”.
I grabbed the power from the hot wire in each door, the center wire at the window plug.
