Doesn't matter, you pretty much buy the motor with the regulator anyway. As he says, mostly the cheap plastic window glass holders break, or the plastic ferrules to derail cables. Once cable derailed, the more you work it the more tied up in knots the cable becomes. Made to break easily in case a child gets head caught in window. Lubing the frame runs with silicone spray can make regulators last longer but biggest thing is not hitting all the way top or bottom hard, just a kiss makes regulators last MUCH longer.
