What is a window regulator and how does it work?

A window regulator is a mechanical assembly that opens and closes a window in a vehicle. The regulator consists of a system of metal arms or cables attached to a gearbox. Whenever someone actuates the gearbox, the window travels up or down. While window regulators of the past often required a passenger to manually turn a crank to operate them, modern regulators are usually fitted with an electric motor. When a driver or passenger presses the window switch, an electrical signal is sent to the window regulator motor, which, in turn, drives the window up or down.

How do I know if a window regulator needs to be replaced?

If a window in your vehicle will no longer go up or down, the fault may be with the window regulator. Other signs that a window regulator may need to be replaced include

Window travels up or down slowly

You hear a chattering or “jumping” joinse as the window travels up or down

The fuse (or circuit breaker) for the power window keeps tripping when a window switch is pressed

A window goes up or down in a crooked manner
