rcscratchfly: I have the same problem with my Hiunday Accent, this regulators are realy junk. Thank´s a lot for the Video
Leann Gensamer: This video was a huge help but now the window is going up crooked how do you correct this ? I know you pointed out the four bolts but they are tight and i never touched the tracks so im not sure whats going on.
Cameron Clay: Thanks man! This video just saved me alot of money. I'm 16 and my dad picked this car up for me as a quick flip car for about $800 with 127,000 on it. The driver's side and both back need regulators and this just saved me alot of headache!
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: 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 !!!
Daniel VanElzen: your welcome, this was my first regulator repair, and I kind of helped breaking it by pushing down on the window when it was frozen. dumb on my part.
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
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.
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: 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.
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: @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: 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.
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.
