Drivers side window motor and regulator cost?

Hi Guys,

My drivers side window has been working very intermittently the last few months. It would work fine, and then just stop. You couldn't hear the motor or anything, just dead, almost like the switch was bad. Then a month or two later, it would work good for a day or two, then stop again. The other day my wife rolled the window down and it stayed down, I couldn't get it back up. I pulled the window up with my hands, and eventually the window came off track and dropped into the door

I took it into the Nissan dealership today, he said it needs a new motor and regulator assembly, and also the window was off the clips I think he said. So they would need to get the urethane back on if that makes any sense. Anyways, the total cost for parts and labor is $715. Do you think they are taking advantage of me, or does this sound right?

Thanks,
Brian

Yup got quoted about 450$ just the parts. The labor that kills you. Buy the parts & diy.

For that money I can buy a complete door. Go to a local shop and get a price.

Here's a video showing you how to do it, I know its a titan but its close enough.

You can get just the motor or the regulator and motor together, it truly is not that hard to tackle it your self. I did it on my corolla and it took around two hours. My motor was only $38 through Rockauto.com, but I'm pretty sure it's going to be twice that much for one on an armada.

Good luck.

Nate

My passenger side window did the samething. I had a friend of mine that replaces windows and window motors and he cleaned it out. He said there was like sand in it. It worked for about 2 weeks and then it stopped again. It's been about 5 months since I have had time to replace it. But summer is coming and there is no way I am going through summer without a passenger window. Does anyone know if you have to replace the regulator when replacing the motor?? My buddy said all I needed was the motor but I am not too sure.

Has really good prices on replacement parts, I literally replaced half my suspension joints on my civic for under 2 bills where the oem stuff was over a G note just for the parts.

The regulator and motor come out in one piece, then you have to switch out the motors and put it back in as one unit. Unless the regulator is broken or if you can buy it as a unit just as cheap, there is no reason to get a new regulator as well.
Good luck
