Hi

Does anyone know if you can get new window regulator cables to repair your old ones.

Want to repair a couple that are laying around.

Can old cables be repaired

If the cable is stuffed then the Reg is finished. Chuck them in the bin and buy new ones.

I think this bloke had them laying around as spares and wanted to know if he could fix them instead of replacing them, not to use them right now for a current reg problem. In saying that I think his question has been answered

You can use manual winder cables - they are different lengths, so that means the location of the motor moves a bit, you need to redrill/extend the mount holes in the door for them.

BTW, I'm talking about the genuine Rockwell units.
