Removing Window Regulator

I'm having trouble getting my window regulator out of the truck! I have a 99 Blazer, have everything done up to the step that says: Remove Window Regulator. It's just not coming out. Any Suggestions?

Hi

Sorry to ask,have you Drill out the rivets that secure the window regulator to the door?
Remove the power window motor, if equipped.

RE: Removing Window Regulator

yes, I've drilled out the rivets, but I can't get the motor out. It's really close for the wheel on the bottom track, i just can't get it the last little bit.

RE: Removing Window Regulator

I read that you weren't supposed to remove the motor from the regulator, because of the coil mounted spring, is that right?

[ol]Drill a hole through the window regulator and the sector gear.



Install a bolt and a nut through the hole in order to lock the sector gear in position.
Drill out the rivets that secure the power window motor to the window regulator.
Remove the power window motor from the window regulator. [/ol]

RE: Removing Window Regulator

I can do this while the regulator and motor are still in the blazer? I just want to check, because I read a lot on being careful about the regulator arms. Thanks for your help!

RE: Removing Window Regulator

I'm actually trying to remove the regulator and motor from the door. I'm replacing both the regulator and the motor. I have the whole piece free, but can't get it off the tracks.
