My window regulator is making a clicking noise. The noise is this part poking through the hole. Pretty sure it's time for a replacement, but has anyone ever fixed one of these?

I’ve done it before. Here is the how-to thread I followed at the time:

Thanks, that will be helpful.
I was wondering if anyone has repaired the regulator, instead of replacing?

In my case I was replacing the door lock actuator and broke the window regulator trying to get things apart. I guess it depends on what/how much is broken. I broke the plastic pulley so the cable was slipping off, so definitely not fixable.

There are plenty available on ebay for around $50. Very easy to change!

It finally broke. Called the dealership, woul cost me about 380, but i think he may have given me the wrong part number. I called 2 different part stores, they asked me what features i had, and 2 or 6 wires. i gave one of the stores the part number and he said it didn't seem to match my vehicle. I have one touch down and up. Its a 2012 jet limited. I might just take it apart and count the wires.

Done. Took about an hour and a half. While I was in there, i noticed that its been replaced before. Every bolt and screw had evidence of being taken apart before.
