Bonnie, that'* not cheating - that' * using "alternate servicing methods".
Sorry to hear about the transmission. Are you having that fixed before you trade in the car? If so, after putting that kind of money into the car, you may want to consider posting your other problems here to see if we can help you through want may turn out to be relatively easy fixes.
So far, the rear regulators are the ones that have broken the cables and given the current problem. If the fronts have a problem, the window is generally stuck in the up position, and removing, then putting the motor back in frees it up.
Just something to consider for an option.
