WINDOW MOTORs AND WINDOW REGULATORS
Window regulators are an often-overlooked yet vital component of every car. They do not require any attention unless and until the regulators cease to function. Have you ever gone through the drive-thru at a fast food restaurant and forgotten you couldn't roll your window down? Worse, the window rolls down but you can't put it back up, and storm clouds are gathering in the sky. Raising and lowering the window is not considered a luxury or comfort until the regulator motor fails and the window stops working. Automotive door window regulators continually move the door glass up and down, allowing occupants in the car to get fresh air. The window regulator and motor are prone to wear as a result of frequent window use.

MANUAL WINDOW REGULATORS
A manual window regulator is the most basic basic window rising mechanism. It always features a handle protruding from the door panel that controls the up and down movement of the glass window. Humans are the "power" behind this type of regulator since the window crank must be physically spun to raise and lower the door glass. With so many cars now equipped with electronic windows, manual regulators are becoming increasingly rare.
POWER WINDOW REGULATORS
A power window regulator accomplishes precisely what its name suggests. It is a device that regulates the up and down movement of the glass window. Power window regulators are always driven by an electric motor, which is activated by a power window button on the door panel or console. In many cases, a damaged window motor may be replaced without replacing the window regulator. This simplifies and lowers the overall cost of the repair.
