Gmc window regulators


I have replaced these regulators on my 01 gmc pickup 3 times and now i need to do it again . Is there something i’m missing, the motors seem to be fine . But the cables seem to be binding. Has anyone else had this problem .


Has the truck ever been in an collision?

I’m thinking something is out of alignment.

Is this problem confined to one door? If so, a measurement check on the other door may assist you.

You shouldn’t have to change regulators that often. Perhaps once is all if everything lines up.

Does the window glass slide smoothly in the guides?

Don’t forget to lube all moving parts when done.


it is both sides , and the window does seem to move freely . thanks for the reply
