You guys are fast if you can do it in 15mins. The rivets are a absolute c_nt to get out. It took me more than 15 mins to get each rivet off.

Drill & hammer the bastards out that takes less then 2 mins.
Just make sure the glass is out when hammering/drilling.

if you use a punch on the rivet pin then drill them out I have found this works well.

I have successfully repaired 2 of them. The crappy plastic sleeves get brittle and shatter. The bits of plastic jam up inside the cable drum. The motor itself is generally fine.

I have been making up a new set using motors and cables from a magna. They are a similar deasign but use japanese mechanisms.

I am a serious tight a** so spending almost no $$$.

You can get "new" aftermarket mechs from ebay for about $100 each.

All fixed nice to see & keep a stick or a piece of Conduit in your boot so if the cable snap in any other door you can put the stick/conduit in place to keep the window shut.
