    Has anyone had much experience with regard to changing either the cable or the whole regulator assembly?

    I have just had a quick browse on fleaBay and seen the repair kit's for £25inc postage.

    Any help would be much appriciated!:icon_thumright:

    Yes done this recently, its a lot easier than it looks, toughest parts is positioning the door sub frame correctly on rebuild.

    You will need a pop rivet gun of your changing the lot fella, along with decent sized star drive sockets and some light grease. The link below should help you get through it. :)

    I just replaced the runners and the motor myself but the rest seems straight forward enough. And your welcome though I shouldn't be here really.
