I have a 2001 SLE. My left rear window regulator went. I have been reading other post about this problem and it finally had to happen to me. I called a local dealer around here and they want $505 for a new one installed. So I went back to some old post and found a link to a web site called, firstname.lastname@example.org
. At this time I want to thank Auburn, he provided the link. I called this guy named Alex. Said he would rebuild mine for $55.00, since I would be coming to him and there is no core involved. Normally he charges $85. I live in NJ and he is in Brooklyn NY. So I went to NY. Now, I don't know if he charges more if he ships out or sells on ebay. You will have to work that out with him. He hooked me up with this other place 5 blocks away to take it out and reinstall. He charged me $60.00. I also got to watch Alex rebuild my regulator. He also did some improvements to the design so that it will not break again. From what I could tell the cable broke from the top. New cable and some modifications. Done in 20min.
So for a total of $115 plus tolls,gas and some time, sure beats paying a dealer $505. So give this guy a call. 718-851-0100. No matter what the price you will $ave. I just wanted to pass this along because if you are like me it seems like these Bonneville'* are a money pit. This is just one of the many problems that this car has. Everything that I have to fix seems to always cost a min of $300. I could go on and on. Anway, thanks and enjoy. Hope this helps somebody as it helped me.
