Default who do I have to stab in the heart for a window regulator?

The damn cable broke, and if the local motorcycle shop can't make one to fit, or I screw up putting it back together I am screwed. This is bs. I always break something after I do some car mods...and I just spent $700 on suspension and $600 on seats.

I was ready to kill the whole phone book after ******* with mine for about a month and ending up killing the motor and breaking the regulator i decided to have my body shop do it, turned out to be a problem for them too. I work in a shop with about 30 techs and none would go near it. Finally said **** it and took it to mazda, $170 later it's better than ever.

I need a cable, and that means I can do like $110 at a salvage yard...which is bs.

I'm waiting on a slow *** motorcycle shop to make a cable for me...if not I'll just hold out for the A1 regulator kit that will last much longer.

My manual window regulator cable just snaped, do you know where I can get a new one of those for a resonable price?

You must be speaking of the regulators from "LAND O LAKES" - Those guys like to give you an *** reamin.
It does say under the BID price -- MAKE OFFER!
I have to agree, they are "ROBBERS" and I think they are also "Pickle Pirates".
Have you ever heard of "LKQ" or "Damron" auto parts and salvage? (both the same place) - I could get one on Monday for $35 - They Deliver to me! Great Place.

*** What side are you looking for Jesus?**** There is a drivers side for $65 and $15 shipping on there.-- And it also says MAKE OFFER!

thats the going rate at auto salvage yards in DFW. If the motorcycle shop can't make me a cable, I'll have to go with that kit.


Whats the best grease to use?
