When I removed the old regulator, not surprisingly it looked just like the picture posted here. It broke in the same spot, and looked the same way. What I noticed is that there is a small hexagonal stop in the cable that was firmly wedged under that plastic finger that shows at the top. Could this be part of the problem, that it keeps getting caught there and puts extra stress on the cable until it finally breaks? Considering that as a possibility, what if the window was not seated as far down into the new regulator, maybe a quarter inch or so from resting on the bottom. That would seem to keep that hexagonal stop, connector, or whatever it is from getting jammed under that finger. Just a thougt. Of course, it would probably take some time fo find out if it worked or not.
