    Default Window mechanism

    My window decided to stop working today on my 57 vectra. Took door cards off, and the mechanism decided to bend, the motor seems to be fine. How much am I looking at from vx to supply and fit one o these? Worst case scenario prices too?

    will need to remove the door card, then drill out about 4 or 5 rivets, then remove a 2part rivet hold the glass to the runner then the mech should be able to come out. The motor can be seperated from the mech if the replacement from the breakers dont come with one.

    Done tons of these now, not too bad a job... just the 2part rivet can be a pain to line back up.
