    This makes #3 in less than a 12 month timespan.

    So, with your vast experience and expertise, why not go ahead and do the fourth one while the knowledge is still fresh?:icon_lol:

    That would have been my idea after #2 broke.

    I just had my first one go and am seriously contemplating just going ahead and buying another set all the way around. Knowing myself as I do, I'll probably keep on contemplating it until right after the next one goes...

    Also, you didn't mention if this is on the same window or not. I replaced my driver side front and it started tilting forward after about six months and even got stuck once or twice. I was gonna have a power window guy replace it but he just adjusted it for me for free. What he did was loosened the bolts then ran the window up and down a couple times then ran it up and tightened the bolts again. The window works better than ever. He also told me that the dorman window regulators are good stuff.

    The best you can do to forget about the broken regulator it's not to roll the window until the end of the line.

    .....all regulators were on different doors. The most current one that broke was still able to roll the window up however, when lowering the window, the glass would come down a few inches and then the long cable that is supposed to contain the twisting wire (whatever it's called) would push it's self up out of the door cavity, between the window sill and the glass.........reminds me of the giant squid tentacles reaching up right before it drags down the pirate ship in one of those Pirates of the Caribbean movies.
