Also there was a very common problem with the 96 and 96 Achieva'* and that problem was bad body seals on the floor pan, after awhile they have a tendency to let some water in around that sensor because there is a body seal that is pretty close to it. I have even been told by few other that even if you spill a drink of some other type of liquid in the car it can run down into the carpet and probably mess up that sensor. All of the reviews I have read about it they were calling it a poor GM idea but GM never wanted to admit to it and due recalls on it.

I have 4.5 inches the first time around and the second time around it was 2.5 inches because I was really paying that close attention but I have a bad window motor and I forgot to ask a neighbor to pull up on the window while I hold the button but since this allot newer then my last car I don't know how to replace the window motor in the door.

Oh, that explains the reason for a helluva lot of water inside.

Yep but there is another problem and that is I have no clue on how to replace the window motor in that door. It has a total different setup then my 89 Delta 88 had so I may half to shop it to replace the motor for that window because the lack of knowledge on this newer setup compared to my last car.

Post pictures of your door panel and I am sure someone on the forum can tell you how to change the window mechanism. I've not seen one yet I couldn't figure out.

I found that you half to pull the window regulator to get to the motor so I'm just gonna replace the entire unit, window motor and regulator already assembled. I have the option to just replace the motor or replace both at the same time so since I half to pull the window regulator out to get to the motor I am just gonna replace both and call it a done deal.
