    A few weeks ago my driver side window wont go down without me pushing it,same thing to go up,but i was able to heard the motor running and a clicking noise so i decided to take the window motor out and surprise the bushing were worn out,so i went to the parts store and bought the bushings and got it fixed now it works like new up and down.now im goign to tell you how and what you need:

    Tools needed:

    *Bushing can be found at autozone,O'Reillys or Advance auto parts for about $6.99

    Part No. is 74410 specs of bushings are :

    Diameter:.595"
    Height:.429"
    *Phillips
    *5/16 socket
    *Flat scredriver

    Step 1: ok first thing open the door (of course)

    Step 2: now see the black part that you use to shut the door that needs to come off,on the top of it stick the flat screwdriver
    and pop it loose,once that is done puul it straight up, on the back of it there is the power mirror switch unplug it, then
    unscrew the two screws to free the lock/unlock harness

    [​IMG]


    Step 3: Take off the two screws that are near the center of the door panel.

    Step 4:Now pull the panel door up and then feed the door opening handle thru the door panel.now the door panel is off

    Step 5:the window operator i s east of the door,peel back the plastic as necessary to get to it,then unplug it,now fish it thru the
    little hole

    Step 6:Take the speaker off it has 4 screws

    [​IMG]

    Step 7:now peel back the plastic as necessary to get to the 3 bolts holding the motor

    Step 8:takes off the three bolts holding the motor,make sure you are ready to catch it or will fall inside the door (no biggie),get it
    out thru the speaker hole.

    Step 9:eek:pen the motor by uncrimping the two crimps and pop the cover off surprise !!!!!!all that stuff is not garlic is whats left of
    your bushing,at the end of the shaft there is a clip,spread its ears and slide the clip right off (pics no.1)

    Step 10: pull the gears out and clean the inside

    Step 11:put your new bushings in

    Ya know if you wanna be cheap or you your local auto parts store doesn't have the bushings you can use nuts. Just put some nuts in there how you would the bushings and it will work fine. I've done it on a few cars. However there is a reason why the stock bushings are plastic so you don't chop your fingers off while rolling the window up.

    On the other motors, the plate doesn't detach around the gear...it's all one piece, so you can't get into the inside without messing something up.
    I did this today on my girlfriend's 95 and it works like a charm. The price of the bushings is up to $9 though.
    Still better than a $54 power window motor.

    you can also use 1/4 nuts and put them where those little help things go.

    did it to both driver and passenger side in my 94 opal car.
