Replacing the Window Regulator
A while back I had a little off-track excursion into a tire wall during a track day. The window regulator was damaged in that accident and never replaced. More specifically, the track the window sits in, which is part of the regulator assembly, was bent and kept the window from being able to move smoothly in the track. It also prevented the window from getting all the way to the fully-up position. It would close enough to prevent water from coming in when it rains, but there’d sometimes be a little wind noise from the misalignment and, frankly, it needed to be fixed.
