    With door panels off, I have had a first opportunity to assess electric motors.

    This picture shows the manual window winder on the passenger side front door motor winder.

    This was very well greased and turned reasonably easily, with no rust to it either, let the window down several inches, after breaking initial resistance from rubber seals.

    I had expected it to be siezed and was very pleased that it could turn, all helical gears in good order, cleaned them up to check for damage or wear, they are like new.

    Will pull these all out shortly and assess overall condition.

    I missed this tread. That’s good news, mine were beyond help – I think refurbished motors are around ?600 each!

    I think I paid around ?100 each to have mine refurbished, but no guarantee (one doesn’t work again)

    This post does seem a long time ago.

    All my four motors had been removed from the doors. Aside from removing all the old grease which had become a little hard, and then re-greasing, all of my four motors work fine. I was very fortunate, most people I have spoken to have told me that these motors are often problematic, even after paying for refurbishment.

    I have also removed the chains and de-gunked and de-greased them as well and associated sprockets, then regreased.

    When I start to check and rewire as needed, I will rewire all four motors, one can’t trust 50 year old wiring.
