Cost and Supplies
Hiring a professional is recommended for truck window regulator replacement, but if you are doing this on your own, you need the right tools for the job. If you don't have them already, you will need a 7mm socket and ratchet, a Phillips screwdriver, a putty knife, wrench, and drill. 4 Wheel Parts sells a Crown Automotive Window Regulator Kit that includes a regulator, handle and screw for easy replacement.
For those who are fixing or replacing their regulator on their own, follow these steps to dismantle your car door for easy access to the truck door window regulator. The first step is to roll or power your windows all the way down. Next, you need to remove the door panel to get to the regulator. Remove the screws and plates of the door and then undo the pins. Once you remove the interior door panel, pull the lock rod out and disconnect the lock actuator. Replace actuator parts with the exact same models of parts for best results. Check to make sure cables have not become disconnected or tangled and then reconnect the actuator. Replace the door and screws. There are usually about nine or ten screws around the interior door frame. Test out your window power once the door is reconnected to be sure it is working properly.
