    are you doing just the motor????
    if you are expect to spend a half day since it will be the first one you
    have done.
    the cable has to be wrapped around the motor drive pulley and when you
    get to the end and are flipping it over to place on it the motor you
    find the cable is too short to allow this and takes some serious
    strength to stretch the cable and allow the flip over gooood luck

    thnaks for your reply. I was looking at a chiltons manual today and
    from what they say is you tape the window from falling then you remove
    the old motor with the drum in place with the cables. install the new
    motor in place and remove drum off old motor and put on new motor. it
    mentions that you may have to move the glass slightly up or down to
    align the drum on the least this book shows it as fairly
    straight forward. it sound like the cables stay rolled up in this drum
    as you transfer it to the new one.

    Well I installed the new power window motor in today and it took a
    total of 2 hours...that includes removal of the door panel and putting
    it all back together again...a very easy job to do and saved a total
    of 210.00 bucks by doind it myself...I think I will go out and have a
    good steak dinner...
