Default Window regulator going out.

Window regulators?

Winter is comming, and I need a strong motor to drive the driver'* window, especially on a cold morning where there is alot of frost. The motor is going on its way out, I can tell.

Is this just a weak motor, that I can replace, or does the entire regulator, and whatnot have to be replaced? Are junkyard motors any good? Prolly not, but oh well.

Anywheres where I can get a good motor, thats stronger?

Default motor

go with a new motor with a life warranty. These OEM motors don't last.
If its just going slow you could speed it up some by spraying the window track with silicone.
