Just finished doing the zip tie fix on the front passenger side. Took about 3 hours start to finish, but i was taking my time. There are two mechanisms with that cylinder and only one of them broke, but i went ahead and put zip ties around the second one as well as a PM - I would hate to do all this work only to have the other mechanism break in a month. My front driver side failed a year ago and back then i did not know about the zip tie trick, so i went ahead and purchased a new regulator and installed it myself as well.

Everything seems to be working great on the passenger side with a zip tie fix, i just wonder how "permanent" is this fix? What's the longest that someone had this without any problems?

Great diy
