So yesterday, I fixed the window regulator on the passenger side.....man, what a pain to get to.....there are three bolts that hold this baby in place and two of them are concealed and have dimples in the panel to drill in order to take the bolt out. Well, we did that and I ordered a new motor from ebay (I know, I know, will probably get some crap here) as it saved me, $30 from $60-$70 from LMC China and Bronco Graveyard. Well, the gears and plug ins were correct, but one of the bolts didn't line up and thank God it was the center one to the left and not the top and bottom ones which to me were the important ones keeping the motor from shifting at all!

The other thing that was different was the bolt holes...in the original motor, the bolt holes were threaded and this new part, probably from China, was just a hole, so we had to run to the store to get bolts, lock washers and such...we did buy the hardened steel bolts so we could really torque it. Installed it and works like brand new!
