Power Window install

I just got done installing power windows in my 130. $100 for the motors off Ebay. They went in pretty easy. I will do a write up when I take some pictures. They work great

Kevin,

That rules... I'd be interested in pics/instructions...

I saw a D90 wagon going on eBay last week, and the guy had power windows but didn't show any info... not even a pic of the 'controls' inside the truck.

Bravo.

Nicholas

Here are a few pics of the install. I removed all previous window mechanisms and trashed them. I utilize the plate on the door to help mount the new motor and the cut to size some of the hardware that came with the new power window units. Wiring was easy. I just tucked it up under the dash and wired it to a unused hot wire behind the cigarette lighter that only gets power when the ignition is on. My door panels are shot so I will be looking for new ones soon. The red tube tucks behind the panel and does not interfere with it's operation. The controls on the drivers door operate both windows. With this setup I cannot roll the windows down all the way. Both winndows stick up about 2 inches, that is the only bad thing about the install so far.

Looks good - what causes the windows not to go down all the way?...Is the track on the motors you bought too short?

The motor takes up too much space in the door. I had to cut the track down to fit in the door frame. Another type of motor may work better but for the money I spent, less than $100 for two motors I can put up with the inconvenience.
