WINDOW MOTOR AND WINDOW REGULATORS
Window regulators are one of the overlooked but important pieces of any vehicle. Unless and until the regulators stop operating, they do not require any care. Have you ever drove through a fast food restaurant's drive-thru and forgotten you couldn't roll your window down? Worse, the window rolls down but you can't put it back up, and there are storm clouds in the sky. Until the regulator motor malfunctions and the window stops operating, raising and lowering the window is not considered a luxury or comfort. Automotive door window regulators continuously move the door glass up and down, allowing the vehicle's passengers access to the outside air. Due to frequent window usage, the window regulator and the window motor are subject to wear.

POWER WINDOW REGULATORS
A power window regulator does exactly what it sounds like. It is a mechanism that controls the movement of the glass window up and down. Power window regulators are always powered by an electric motor that is controlled by a power window button on the door panel or console. In many circumstances, a broken window motor may be replaced independently of the window regulator. This makes the repair easier and less expensive overall.
MANUAL WINDOW REGULATORS
The simplest basic window raising device is a manual window regulator. It always has some kind of handle extending out from the door panel that controls the up and down action of the glass window. Because the window crank must be manually cranked to raise and lower the door glass, humans constitute the "power" behind this sort of regulator. With so many automobiles now equipped with electric windows, manual regulators are becoming uncommon.
