Window Motor Parts (w/Pics)

Hey All

I'd been having some trouble with my '94 driver side window recently. It would snag at certain points going up (sometimes down as well) and make a nice loud, buzzing noise. :confused:

Took apart the door panel thinking it may be a track issue, as the window had been a bit wobbly. Tracks all looked fine, nothing loose, plenty of grease, etc...

Test the window, while giving it assistance up and the motor finally has enough.

Great:censor:it's dead. :mad: Or so I thought.

I remove the whole assembly, take the motor off and run it on it's own. Works fine rolling down, but going up it stops at a certain point. I move the little sprocket and it works...until it rotates about 3/4 turn then stops.

I pull the gray cover off the motor assembly

I remove the gear assembly

Apparently the screw mechanism had chewed into the plastic gear. :mad:

So...now what to do? Can I replace this part? Do I have to spend $300 to replace the entire motor assembly for what amounts to a broken piece of plastic??

I called my local Toyota parts dealer and they were of little help (as usual).

Anybody out there with a blown window motor want to send me this piece? I'll pay shipping and toss in a few $$ for the effort.:beer:

Thanks
Mitchell

If you have the time and energy for the junk yard thing, the gear from another Toyota may be the same, 4runner, Tacoma, etc?

Well, seeing as how I don't really want to spend $300 for what would amount to a piece of plastic...and I don't want to be without a window while I hunt the junkyards...here's my alternative.

Take a dab of epoxy plus a small triangle file. Throw in a little patience and a steady hand :cool: and…
