Randy, The Lazy Comic: Wow, your sister has a 2006 model, and this was still happening even then.
Mine's a 99 model. Yeah, I still have it. The car still runs great, even
though the paint is falling off of it, literally. Now, my switch went bad
on the driver's window. It goes up, but not down. New switch is almost
$100.00, which I don't have right now. Not worried about it though. Winter
is almost here. Glad to see you're a fix it kinda guy, but I already knew
that. LOL Now, off to fix some food. Later... Randy.
tough213: good for you I am happy to see that you stuck it to hyundai and did it
yourself they do make great cars but crappy window regulators . my sister
had the same issue with her 2006 hyundai elantra and she had a fit they all
went bad after a year and she did it all herself with my help and I must
say they work better then when she bought the car great job keep up the
great work as always
Randy, The Lazy Comic: Ron, had to get my windshield replaced a few months back. (stone hit it).
Anyway, I don't even put the inside panel on my driver's door any longer.
The panel is in my storage unit, since I don't trust the damned windows at
all. Anyway, I showed the guy from SafeAuto the cracked clip. He told me,
it is a dealer part. The only window I give a rats ass about going up &
down is the drivers window, and it's the one that bites me the most. (The
switch is also bad now too). Grrrr. Randy
Ron Shulda: I'll have to check the clips. They bo t h seem to be secure, but I'll have
to pull the window and check. Thanks for the tip. I have noticed that when
the window is 1/2 way up, I can move the window easily from side to side
within the track, so it could be a clip. Not even sure where to by the damn
things. I uses Rockauto.com for my parts and know they dont carry it.
Randy, The Lazy Comic: Ron, I'm having the same problem with the driver's door window. I've
adjusted the tracks, etc. I actually have to guide it into place with my
hand. Check and see if the nylon clip, that is glued to window, (the piece
the regulator bolts to), isn't cracked. Mine is, and that could be the
problem. I just need the car to last 6 more months, tops, then I won't be
needing it any longer, and it can be somebody else's pain. Check that clip
I mentioned. Randy
Ron Shulda: Hey Randy, I have a 2000 Elantra that I've replaced all 4 regulators and
motors on now. The last one I had to do was the drivers door window. After
replacing the regulator, the window goes up, but comes out of the upper
track about 3/4 of the way up. The window is basically on the outside of
the rubber guide it normally rides in. I didn't remove the window or touch
the window guides, just replaced the regulator like you did in your video.
Any ideas on what is wrong?
Randy, The Lazy Comic: Haven't tried that, but it's worth a shot.
Randy, The Lazy Comic: Glad the video helped you to hold the window up. I just did the same thing
on my back door. The 14th regulator broke, the car has 152,000 miles on
it... and I said screw it. I stuck the pipe under it to hold it up,
unplugged the switch so nobody can activate it... and called it a day.
Also, my radiator ruptured this past week. $370.00 later... well, at least
I don't have a car payment.
Daniel VanElzen: very helpful video, ya the garages I called wanted about $300.00 to fix my
Elantra DD regulator. I found one online for 90.00 , so I saved over
$200.00 Thank you!
Randy, The Lazy Comic: Bryan... not sure of what you're doing here. Sounds like you put a
different year door on your car... and I'm not even sure how that would
work out. You lost me on this one.
Randy, The Lazy Comic: @unmemorableusername I am glad the video helped you out. I don't know of
another one like this on the net that takes you step by step and tells you
what tools to use. I was just so pissed off with Hyundai, I was bound &
determined to make sure they got no money. There is a website called 1-A
Automotive... or A-1 Automotive. Either way, check them out. I just had to
buy ANOTHER regulator. They had after market one for $47.00 and that
included free shipping. Good luck.
Randy, The Lazy Comic: Hey, glad to help, and of course, take money out of Hyundai's pockets. Wow,
you've got 5,000 miles more than I do, and I've had all kinds of problems
with the air-pollution crap. It just cost me $600.00 to get the check
engine light out, and now it's back on. Grrrrrr. And you've only replaced 2
regulators? Hell, I've replaced 9 of them. I've gotta get my check engine
light fixed again. It is code PO441, which says purge valve open. Now, if I
could just FIND the purge valve to fix it myself.
Bryan Khaov: My windows were broken so i bought a new side door and replace it. but now
the problem is getting the three side clip to go in on a 2002 , I had to
try to unscrew the side of the nut and tried to put it in like that but it
wont connect and that wont allows the door lock to work. The middle clip
seems to always be the problem and never wants to go in.
Randy, The Lazy Comic: I'm glad my video was able to help you fix the problem, and save you some
money too. Keep this video as a favorite. I've had to replace 14 window
regulators on my Elantra. Randy The Lazy Comic
Andrew Butcher: Thanks a lot lazy, My regulator just broke and your guide helped me figure
out how to hold the window up, and hopefully repair it later. PS to
everyone, my car is a 2000 Lantra (not an Elantra) and every thing seems to
be the same.
Randy, The Lazy Comic: I just sent you a private email to tell you how to remove the panel. It's
time consuming, but pretty easy. You should be able to pop it off in 15 -
20 minutes. Now mine has an oil leak. I'm finding drops of oil on the
driveway. Funny, it didn't leak until I had the valve cover gasket replaced
a couple of months ago. I wonder if there's a connection?
Randy, The Lazy Comic: Try ebay for the regulator. The always have a bunch of them for sale...
with and without the motors... and buying them on ebay is WAY cheaper than
andybhoy1988: cheers for the demonstration ,i have a hyundai accent ,i am now on my 2nd
window regulatorin 5 years...i like you didnt use the garage,they wanted
£65 to fit it took me about an hour aswell
Randy, The Lazy Comic: I feel your pain. I've got two more doors that now need done. This will
officially be regulators #15 and 16. (And the jerks at Hyundai insist there
is no problem with these windows). I'm glad the video was able to help you.
I'd really appreciate it if you'd subscribe to my channel. (I'm trying to
break 300 by June, so I'd really appreciate it). Thanks in advance !!!
Randy, The Lazy Comic: Everything? Noob... never heard that term, but I like it. If you don't need
the regulator, I'm assuming what you need is the glass? Depending on the
year of your car, I'd try a junk yard for that. If you need any other
stuff, I'd get that there too. Sometimes, it's just easier to replace the
whole door. If you do that, don't forget to change out the lock assembly so
your key will work. That's actually pretty easy. Can be done in an
Randy, The Lazy Comic: Cool... and thanks. The job isn't that bad. You'd spend more time at the
garage than it actually takes to fix the window. Cheers to you for doing it
Randy, The Lazy Comic: I have a 99 also, so the items should be in the same place. I have the shop
manual for my car, but the pics never look like what you're looking at
under the hood. I thought, well, just follow the vacuum hose. Well, there
are 90 of them under the hood. Daaah? Dumb question here. Is the right side
the driver's side or passenger's side? I never know if it's while I'm
sitting in the car or standing in front of it. (It would be different sides
then). Even the book says left & right. Drives me nuts.
Randy, The Lazy Comic: The video was fun to do, and has helped a lot of people on the repair. I
did mention greasing the cable in the video. Not sure what would be cool to
grease the tracks with though, since it would end up on the glass. My cable
never breaks, it's always those cheap ass plastic pieces the cable loops
through. Haven't figured out how to rig those to save the hundred bucks. If
I do, I'll let you all know.
Chris Easterwood: Thanks for the tutorial..my windows haven't worked in 2 years and I always
thought the issue would be much bigger then what it was cause of the ugly
sound the regulator made..but I did it and it works..I seriously have 3
doors to do the same fix on
Randy, The Lazy Comic: Glad the videos helped you on this. That is exactly why I made them, so you
could do the job yourself, save a bunch of cash, and screw the dealers out
of hundreds. (Ain't it great)?!!! Good luck with your project. shoot a
message back and let us all know how you did and how it turned out.
virklegmand: Great video. Thanks. I have an Hyudai Accent & have gone through 3 in 5
years. My tip is to grease the cables & also the tracks... never use the
windows when they're frozen. It's possible to buy cables but it's tricky to
fit them with the right tension (they're not supplied by Hyundai). Thanks
colorbars01: As for the purge valve/canister, i'm not quite sure where it is on that
particular year but on my '99 its was near the spring mount on the right
hand side of the car. there is a chance that both the canister and the
purge valve are faulty but try the valve first. the actual valve is not
near the canister. all u need are pliars for the brackets and a screw
driver for the wire connector pin.
colorbars01: You the MAN!!! I was sooo close to giving up and paying clowns at Hyundai
for it. But now know I can do it... As for Hyundais being pieces of poop,
my 99 has 137,000 on it and other that some universal boots, and the
customary timing belt changes, it has been pretty good. That said, this is
the second regulator to be replaced.
colorbars01: Have you tried to leave the gas cap a little loose? It might fool the
computer into thinking everything is okay.
mvurbdy007: I removed the broken part and the plastic part in the top was broken and
the cable was snapped. Then, I went to a Bosch dealer located nearby. They
said they have it only with the motor and the set costs 120 euros. Now I'm
looking for the regulator without the motor. The Hyundai prices of parts at
hyundai dealers are about 10 to 20 percent higher than the regular car
parts stores so if I don't find a used one I won't be buying the part from
Hyundai anyways. Thanks again.
mvurbdy007: Great videos, I have a Hyundai Accent XE which uses the exact system and as
you may guess the power window is broken. I'm gonna repair it tomorrow.
Thanks for the guidance
