Default WTB Window regulator.

So the damn cable snapped on my driverside window regulator. The price from Moss is obscene. I dont have much money spend on the repair, can anyone help my poor *** out?

Edit: Power windows.

Yeah, it comes apart, motor and regulator are often sold separately.
Either piece will be expensive. Buy the used complete, thats cheaper, and MUCH easier to do too.

Guy on the local forum got the regulator from Mazda Motorsports I think and had to attach it to the motor.

There's also a new regulator from finish line: http://www.finishlineperformance.com...cat=272&page=2

Another guy (Paul) took the cables from a manual window and made it work in a power window setup.

You can get plain cable at any hardware store. If it's got special attachmnet points on the ends, you're screwed.

Seriously, 65 bucks is too much? Drop the damn cell phone plan for a month. How can you not be able to come up with that much? What happens if something important breaks?
