Default My first window regulator failure

Ok, I've seen the old posts. I know the drill.

My rear passenger window regulator died the other day. So far, the best price I've seen is about $205 (with shipping). Some older entries listed $178 as a price. Where are you guys looking for these parts?

I've looked at http://www.gmpartsdirect.com/ and http://www.gmotors.com/.

I've got mine held up with a set of locking pliers right now.... Seems to work well.

Any suggestions on where to buy?

I've bought several from gmpartsdirect.com. I think they were about $180 shipped, Fortunately, I haven't needed one in the last year or so...so that price may be old.

I have nothing to add to the discussion, but I've got a roll black duct tape riding along with me in the trunk for that inevitable day! LOL

Take all the POS regulators off and have this outfit below rebuild them better than new and bulletproof for $50/pc. Had mine done-they are awesome!!!!!

Hi Nitro,
I just bought the SE about two months ago... It had 89k miles when I bought it. This bonnie was a company car for a sales woman (she wore a hole in the driver'* side floor mat with her high heel). Lot'* of miles, but I got it for $8k... It is a loaded SE, leather, cruise, climate conrol, all the goodies.

I got rid of a VW Cabrio (1996). Gas mileage was the same and I was tired of fixing all of the plastic body parts on the Cabrio. Get this, the final straw on the Cabrio was a WINDOW REGULATOR!!!

Sometimes, you can run, but you can't hide... I was destined to replace window regulators... Anyway, at least the bonneville regulator is about half the price of the Cabrio regulator.
