I have a question. The regulators for ZX3 is not the same as the sedan is it? I need a drivers side one and I am keeping an eye on the scrapyard. ZX3's are rare around here.

I recently changed out the rear passenger door's power window regulator on a 2000 SE sedan. Is there a trick to getting the spacer back in? I was only able to get it to go in about 60% of the way. What I did was I reached my hand inside the door and first pushed the sleeve through (the sleeve went in without a problem), then I put the center-pin in and pushed on it. But I could only get it to go in about 60% of the way. Is there a trick to this or a special tool perhaps? Does anyone have any experience with this? Thanks!

I'll be doing this soon, won't go up but pulls down...

As for the two piece pin, my shop manual says for the rear Windows you put the pin in the glass-center, then lower to guide, and gently Tao glass too seat..., let know id works...

As for cross fit, I think the ZX3 is probably different, but all first and second gen should cross relative to door position, I believe all ZX5, sedan, wagons use same doors....

The link no longer works. I know it is pretty simple but would love to see the PDF if you still have it. I have to attempt this repair soon.

I don't recall this being that difficult. I did mine 2 years ago. I remember the pin. I think I put it in with a small screwdriver to get it started then pushed it in the rest of the way.

Hoping I have reached the right forum for this. My 2001 se wagon's rear pass. power
window broke something inside. I can't figure how to release the glass from the transit on the power unit. Looks like maybe a job for a special tool but impossible to see exactly how to release the plastic pin that goes thru the glass. The cable came off the guides and something near the top of the unit appears bent. Apparently easy enuf to remove the whole power unit if you can release the glass. Gotta get it out to inspect before looking for parts! I did find a small piece of plastic inside the door that looks like it broke off the bracket that guides the part that holds the glass. Meanwhile have a small clamp applied to hold the window up. Any way to get some kind of a pictorial guide?

Several posts had requested pictures and a guide for the job. I decided to document the process and make a PDF for it. Hopefully others will find this guide useful and give them the confidence to save some money and gain a greater appreciation for the inner workings of their car. Any feedback and comments are welcome. Thanks again!
