so naturally i followed step #5 in this tut. and it told me this was a common problem that can be solved by adjusting the motor.

after about LITERALLY 2 hours, no only does it not work, but its gotten worse than it was when i ****ing started

can someone please let me know what i actually am supposed to do??!?!?!?!?

currently, the motor now starts to drag and slow down to the point where im concerned it will break. THIS DID NOT HAPPEN WHEN I BEGAN

what is going on>!
Posting in here because I'll probably need to do this on the wife's car soon.

To answer your question, I believe that when you fasten the last three torx bolts on either side, they do not go directly into a straight hole, but can be adjusted to raise or lower the actual glass... maybe I read that from Delmarco somewhere? it was in another DIY for this same thing awhile back... I am pretty sure it was Delmarco, PM him..

no clue what you did to your motor, lol.
