Harofreak00,

I just want to say that I followed your instructions to the "T" , and everything went perfect. As for as the window itself not working, it had power going to it, so I removed the 3 screws that hold it to the regulator, and it felt like it was jammed. So I pulled the motor out, hit the switch and it worked fine. So I started turning the the gear that makes it go up and down, by hand, and the window worked also. So I put it all together and the window is working fine.

I really dont know what I did to fix it, but it all works.

Thanks again for your instruction removal and to everyone else that helped out to.
Joe

Thanks JDQ, it works great! I dont know what the dealer would have charged, but I am sure it would have been a lot. You were correct, at least it was not the motor. When I removed the 3 mounting bolts, it seemed liked it was jammed. I just ran it a few times in my hand, sounded good, and re greased what I could and put it back together. You were also right that there was no hidden screws for the panel. You see my 92 Bonneville has hidden screws and that is why I thought they did. Looks like new plastic technology now. Ha.

Default 2003 Bonneville Front Door Panel Removal

Hi! I too am a new member of this great forum. I was able to remove my passenger side front door panel and my back door panel with ease.

My front door was leaking in the passenger floor when it rained alot and I determined that the gasket/seal on the door plastic had come loose and was letting the rain water or car wash water come down the door and then leak onto the flooring carpet.

My back door has a broken cable for the power window. I went to my LOCAL PONTIAC PARTS DEPT and they wanted $342.00 for a new one (they said I could not buy just the cable but had to buy the entire regulator. WHAT A HORRIBLE RIPOFF BY THE DEALER. I asked him how I could buy this same regulator and cable from Ebay fm a California company and with shipping it only cost me $120.00. His response was "Well you know it won't have a guarantee to work". He is wrong because I have bought two others one from this same company for my daughters 2003 Alero and 2001 Alumina and they have both been working for 6 plus months. The one for the Alero was only $70.00 total. The website I found these at was EBay.

Thank you so much for all your help on this forum.

Steve, it would generally be better to start up a new thread, instead of digging up one that is about a year old.

Glad to hear that you got things fixed, however. The water deflector coming loose in the door and creating a leak is a fairly common problem. Besides buying new, you have the option of repairing your old regulator.

The cost of replacements have come down about $100 in the past year for those available on ebay. A quick search there will give at least a couple of them for around $80.
