Give me money to cover shipping ($15?) and I'll send you my manual regulators I just took out last week when I put in power windows.

email me @ kotomile at gmail dot com

I too would like to know this. Mine aren't broken but they are a bit frayed and don't behave nice.

I bought this for my track car 5-years ago and never looked back. They are faster than stock and will probably last longer.
It's not cheap, but I don't have to worry about broken cables again. I suppose some of this frustration was left-over from my VW ailment at the time.

Hustler, is that a pneumatic system or something?

looks nice but I wouldn't want to spend that kinda money even before shipping it to the end of the world
