Rear Window Regulator

Hey Guys,

Well its about time my rear window regulator broke...

About over 120,000 miles now.

I'm sure the zip-tie mod WILL NOT work but it won't hurt to see... I'm going to buy the regulator tomorrow if my stealership has it in stock, and I'll get her fixed up and let you all know how it went!

It scared me though... I thought glass had shattered cause something sounded like it shattered.

It's probably the steel wire getting chewed. There's a rubber seal on the window motor gear/shaft which tends to break too, check it as well
