Hi everyone,

 

A while ago, I got an auto elec around to replace the rear regulators and motors in my power windows. After swapping everything over to new gear, the windows now scrape on the motors. 
 

All the parts were sourced using the VIN, so they should be factory correct (they were sourced through the local mitsu dealer). The auto elec and the mitsu guys have no idea why they're scraping, and I'm getting fed up with waiting for them to sort it out (it's been close to a month with no progress, and this is holding me up from getting RWC/rego).

 

Has anyone else ever had this problem? Any idea what could be causing it?

Hey bud. Where are you located?

 

Ive pulled them in and out of CC GSR, evo 5 and evo 8 - all pretty much same thing.

 

Never had one scrape on glass?!  I dont believe one from the opposite side could be bolted in either

 

My advice, take the door trim off including the power window switch, carefully peel back all that weather proof plastic from the door (its just held on with black silicon). 

 

Once its all off, reconnect just the power window switch so it can complete its circuit, put on your reds, and test the operation up and down and see where the issue is yourself

 

I would also take some photos for us on the forum, in a few different positions - all the way up, all the way down, mid way, and see if we pickup anything, or any support bolts for the motor/regulator missing etc.

Perhaps even a video of the whole door and the window operation would help.

 

Failing all of that, I would remove the lot and refit it.

 

Its been a few years on the GSR, but from memory I used to put the Window around half or 3/4 down first, so as to reveal the 2 phillips screws which keep the glass into the regulator. Then turn off the key. Remove those glass-retaining screws first, then the glass should slide up the channel and you should be able to angle the glass out of the door frame - have 2 people if not confident.

Once the glass is out, there should be something like 3 hex bolts/phillips, which hold the motor to the door frame, and either 2 or 3 holding in the regulator side.

There's also a harness plug which connects to the motor, though cant remember if its accessible before you unbolt the assembly or not.

Once its unbolted, you can basically fold the cabling so that you can maneuver the assembly out of the door shells bottom area.

 

Re-assembly is reverse.

Maybe they bolted the window to the wrong side of the plastic mount and it is too close to the regulator. Pull the trim off and have a gander

Not yet. I've got a head cold currently and don't feel like doing anything once I finish work.

I live in central Qld.
