What does an Electric Window Regulator do?

Most cars nowadays are equipped with electric windows, while this might be more comfortable, fact is that there is more to go wrong due to the variety of electric components involved. Each window's sliding movement is operated by an electric window mechanism, mostly called the electric window regulator.

The regulator consists of a profile that keeps the window in place and a 'scissor' mechanism of sorts that is attached to the electric motor which provides the up and down motion of the electric window system. As you use the electric window switch the motor is activated and powers the regulator to either open or close the window.

Regulator?

  • When the window does not open or close when using the switch.
  • When the window has dropped into the door suddenly.
  • When the window's movement is unusually slow.
  • When the window does not go down or up all the way.
  • When an excessive squeaking noise occurs when opening or closing the window.

When should you consider an Electric Window Regulator replacement?

Over time, the mechanism can wear and sometimes seize. If you hear the electric motor in the door buzzing when pressing the window switch but cannot identify any or limited window movement it is very likely there is an issue with the regulator.

If you hear no buzz from the motor it is more likely that the electric motor has failed. In many cases though, it might be just the switch that has failed or it might be that the system has blown a fuse.

Should you experience problems with an electric window then it is advisable that you have it inspected as soon as possible and, if necessary, have the electric window regulator replaced. As the regulator is, in most cases, part of one assembly with the electric window motor it might be necessary to replace this whole unit.

Remember, always service the electric windows as and when stipulated in the guidelines set out by your car's manufacturer to ensure smooth functioning windows.

What happens during an Electric Window Regulator replacement?

  • The mechanic will inspect the electric window arrangement.
  • The mechanic will carry out checks to determine the fault in the electrical system.
  • The mechanic will remove the door panels if the fault is not with the electrics.
  • The mechanic will inspect the electric window regulator.
  • If necessary, the mechanic will replace the faulty electric window regulator.
  • The mechanic will advise if any other parts need to be replaced.
  • The mechanic will test the window's operation to ensure everything works correctly.
  • If necessary, the mechanic will make adjustments.
