Good thing I found this thread. I am also confuse about this at the moment. I just want to say thanks.. Sorry for the late post.. Reading good threads here really helps. thumbs up.!Hi,will a window motor be the same from a 83 to a 82? also anyone have instructions on how to?
I JUST found outI replaced it today!
Yeah,it took longer than usual:it was my first time!
While I had all of the regulator/motor out of the way,I put in Dynamat and RAA mat.
See the arrow? That's where it is supossed to be when you are finished.If you take out the motor,it WILL slap you in the foot,when the counterbalancing spring unwinds!
If you use a Dorman unit,the mounting holes should be tapped out to 5 mm X .8. Tap the bottom right insert when it's upside down or you will get shavings inside the gear unit.
Some engineer needed to use Torx head mounting screws! That bit size :I used a T-25.
Not clear in the photo.
The new pigtail is a little different mounting location.The entire assembly comes out as you see.
Lower guide track at upper left.(Comes out first,after clamping window at about 1/4 way UP).

The lower track right side but is visible through an acess hole.(Not shown).
The major adjust ments i made to the window were at the 2 upper "stops" and a little to the forward window
guide roller.Adjusted the roller a little closer to the window and moved both "stops" down a little.
I did mark them B-4 I did the adjustment.
The door closes better and I hope it is about right.Not tested on the freeway,yet.
B-4,I could NOT roll up the window above 70 MPH!
Sounds WAY better than B-4 when the window goes up and down,anyway.
Those jack-ass Torks bit requirement was a surprise.:duh:
