    Ok.....pulled my rr window motor apart today, as it been slipping.
    Seen the great threads about repairing broken pucks, but as it turned out, that didn't apply to my problem...
    In my case, it's the gear itself that slips internally....

    IMG_20190803_150906.jpg Guess it's basically nothing to do but try to get a new, but i was thinking of drilling a hole straight thru, and locking the inner and outer part together with some kind of rod...

    How do you feel about this? Guess it's meant to be able to slip some as a safeguard for the motor, but as long as i use it with caution it should be ok?? :/

    Well....since the drive gear was hardened, the drilling didn't work very well :D
    So i took some 12gauge wire, cut a few wires to lenght and spread around the driven part and pressed the gear back. This seems to work good for now, as it's not slipping anymore :)
    It actually slipped so bad that the window slided down by it's own weight....

    Evening fellas, I don’t want to start another thread regarding removing my window motor and regulator for my 77 NYB, Maybe you fellas can point me in the right direction. I’ve read a few other threads on how to rebuild the pucks inside the motor, but I’m looking for “direction / How too” on how to actually remove everything from the door. The motor works I can hear it humming but the window doesn’t move. The window is currently in the UP position. In my picture below I’ve colored and blue all of the bolts or rivets on the door. It appears that the motor has been replaced once before since there are bolts where rivets used to be. But I don’t want to go un-bolting or drilling out rivets without knowing exactly what I need to do. Does the window stay in the door? Or do I remove it with the regulator and motor? I’ve also read about the very dangerous spring on the regulator, other threads have recommended drilling a hole through the regulator and the gear to keep the spring loaded during removal. Any direction would be appreciated.

    Window glass stays in the door. Once the fasteners that hold the regulator are loose, you then slide it out of the tracks and fish it out of the hole at the bottom of the door. It helps to have an assistant hold the glass for you.

    Yes, you need to do this or something similar. Not only is the spring kinda dangerous, you'll have a real hard time getting it back together.

    I’ll use a quick grip clamp that has the rubber pads on it applied to the bottom of the glass just above the top of the door to keep the glass from sliding down when you remove the motor and regulator. I use a locking plier to clamp the gear part of the regulator to regulator body before taking the motor off to keep the regulator from unwinding when you remove the motor.

    I find myself with basically the exact same problem. The manual calls to remove the glass from the lift channel first but I don’t see that step here.

    Can I leave the channel on the glass and just slide the regulator wheel off the end? That would be huge since the bolts holding the glass to the channel are pretty frozen.

    Also, I’m guessing I only need worry about the spring when the regulator is out and I’m about to pull off the motor...pls advise sage readers of this board...

    If you remove the regulator with the motor attached I don't think you'll have a problem. It should come out as a unit. The motor will prevent the spring from unwinding. If it does unwind, it will only go so far. Just far enough to smash your fingers. So be careful regardless. The real fun begins when it's on the work bench or in the vise.

    I just had one do this on me. These 2 pieces are actually splined together and the splines had stripped out. I do have some extras.
