      Driver side window regulator motor stopped working - motor only replacement?

      Hi all,

      I have an aveo 2011 sedan.


      Looks like the driver's side window motor stopped working.

      It is receiving voltage as I checked after removing the door panel and measuring the connection to the motor when pressing the switch.

      Can I just replace the motor without changing the whole unit?

      Thanks

      Thanks. Ordered the new motor.

      Now my doubt is that because it is stuck in the closed position, how do I access it to remove the motor?
      The whole window mechanism needs to be removed, doesn't it? But how to remove the attachment to the glass if it's stuck in the closed position?

      Normally you lower it to access the bolts, don't you?


      Some advice would be greatly appreciated.

      Thanks

      2) Lower the front window.

      With a lever or socket to manually turn the mechanism some how?

      Or if I remove all the bolts holding on the regulator machanism will the window just drop with the mechanism? I can see myself getting in a right mess here. Have to be careful with the glass so it doesn't drop and shatter I assume

      Thanks

      Yup. That way.
      duct tape will be your friend here to hold the glass while removing fasteners.
