Did this video help you?

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.

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 Again.

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.

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.

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.

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

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.

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

colorbars01: Have you tried to leave the gas cap a little loose? It might fool the computer into thinking everything is okay.

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

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: 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.

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.

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: 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 the dealer.

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.

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 afternoon.

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.

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 yourself.

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.

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.

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
