DIY Automotive Projects

Posted May 04, 2010 12:01 AM by CarDomain

We've seen a lot of great How To's recently, including Dave's tutorial on wrapping headers and Chris's epic power disc brake conversion. Looking over these, I'm reminded that the single best thing you can do in this hobby is to help other people work on their own cars.

Whether it's coaching your kid sister through her first oil change or posting up a detailed install for your forum buddies to learn from, empowering fellow and future gearheads with knowledge is the way you earn your automotive angel wings.

So what are your recently completed or planned automotive mods or installs?

Well, (2) weeks ago I just installed a new Window Regulator on the drivers side of my Oldsmobile Intrigue. (noted problem with this model) Window dropped down and did not go back up. also had to make sure that the term was Window Regulator Replacement was what I needed. At first I pictured the Window Regulator as a small electrical control box, when in fact it is the whole Window Power assemble for the door.

After I started, I thought I should have taken pictures and post them here, but I was already half way through.

Had scoured the internet on the install. Bought some cheap trim/panel removing tools and the regulator itself 'bout $140.00 from CarQuest auto parts, could have order them off the internet for about $70.00 + shipping but CarQuest had it in stock, and I had more confidence in the parts, also I had them available now.

It was not that bad. But if anybody had a problem or is interested, I'll be happy to let them know how I did it.
