So another window regulator is busted
Anyone have a link to a good quality product that won't break the bank?
The last one I bought was eBay crap n clearly a POS since it lasted 10 months....

Heard good results from buying the eBay "repair kits" (depending on what's broken) and combining the better quality parts from the broken OEM regulator.

Yea i had a look on there but couldnt justify paying so much for shipping when the non oem ones here are similar price...
Ill see how this one that i bought once again from ebay goes and see how i go.
I have a feeling my speakers vibrating may be one reason for them failing... i could be wrong but just incase i will put some dynamat behid the door.
With the QLD heat i def need my windows down lol. Im a AC hater too...

He has been to a few of the meets I have been to, nice wheels too. Does he by any chance go to UNSW (back when it was stock)? There can't be too many double LSB verts in sydney.

Tomorrow's project: tear apart my door and replace the lock actuator that failed around 12 months ago and that I've had a replacement for sitting around for about 3 months. =S

Driver-side door was keyed today when I went into Harvey Norman. 4 cm of the half a metre long scratch is bare metal.

I've lost faith in humanity and am swearing an oath that if I ever see someone keying a car I will beat them to near-death.

Thats ****ed man - You've got it so much worse then me. Most of mine will buff out. Something needs to be developed to counter keyers cause its just not on.

What goes through their mind I just can't comprehend it - they have to be at least abit psychotic or mentally retarded.
