This was a great post. My driver side window pwr regulator assy cable snapped and this post saved me big bucks by showing me how to do it myself on my 2001 Civic LX
I saw on other postings where I could get the power window regulator assembly online. I saw places like MajesticHonda.com it's $179.00. Their site has some errors. They had 3 parts listed.
Power window regulator assy 59.00
Power window regulator assy 179.00
Power window regulator 59.00
I called to find out which one was the right part for my car. They told me the obvious...the 179.00 part.
I also checked some other sites that sell "Direct OE Fit" parts. I IM'd the technical support and they told me that it's an aftermarket part from Dorman that will work - price 77.00. Some other aftermarket parts sites sell others like Dorman for as low as 52.00.
I was visiting the Hamilton, NJ area and I called the local Honda dealer. Hamilton Honda. price...$80.07 + tax.
for the whole assembly. So check locally and compare prices.
Out of curiosity, I also called the Lakeshore Honda Dealer in Toronto, ON, Canada. And surprise the part costs $225.00 CAD. What exchange rate are they using?
It's not hard. Except for pulling out those white **** things that hold the door trim in place. If you have one of those forked flat head screw driver tools that removes this trim holder grommet. It's super easy.
