Electric window regulator

I just fitted a drivers door electric window regulator to my mates 2003 Laguna today - was able to buy a new one locally (not Renault but made in Italy - supplied with no motor) for 65 all in. He had sought a quote from a local Renault dealer who quoted 220 for a new regulator (it did come with a new motor) and they wanted 2 hours labour at 60 per hour making a total of 340. I have never had to do one before but was able to do it about one hour and I also stripped the passenger door and give it a blast of spray grease. I normally don't charge friends for labour (maybe get a few beers) but he gave me 30 for my trouble and I was well chuffed but not as much as he was.
I also discovered that the regulator was not the original and he bought the car when it was just two weeks over a year old - looks like Renault have been sourcing poor quality or it's just poor design. The local guy I bought the regulator from purchased a bulk order of 120 of them a year ago and he is down to his last 10 - but he would divulge his source.

E-bay and scappys/Breakers!

P.S. My driver side window regulator has gone too!

One thing to remember is when the regulator is playing/not working up you can slide the window down by hand and get into the car that way, if your car is broken like that your insurance co might not pay out as your is not properly secured.

You'll need to get someone to secure/jam the window shut till you get a new regulator

There are plenty of new items on the web at that price. If you pay that for a second-hand unit then you are being ripped off
