Power window regulators are a very popular part type and come in cable and rigid, or scissor, designs. All the power window regulator parts are direct replacement for the original equipment regulators and work only with the original equipment motors. The power window regulator has become a more economical way to repair power window problems by allowing you to replace only the failed component.
To make production assembly quicker, some manufacturers have their window regulators and other components mounted onto an interior door panel (modular design). In some cases, the window regulators are integrated as part of the door panel. Most of the panels use a cable design regulator. These door panels can be either plastic or metal. The plastic integrated door panels have a shorter life span compared to the metal door panels.
