2000 chevy blazer: driver side window mototr/regulator..door panel

Customer Question

I have a 2000 chevy blazer that i am replacing the driver side window mototr/regulator with sissor arms etc. I have opening the door panel drilled out the rivets however I have not been succesful getting the unit out of the door. Moving the unit to the right it seems obstructed by the door it self.

Additionally the new unit which I bought used the rocker arm is in a different position then the one I am removing. Do i need to have it in the same position and if so how do I do that?

Greetings and welcome to Just Answer. My name is Mark.

I am assuming you have "seperated" the "window" from the regulator itself. If not, you need to do so. Below are the instructions for separating the window from the regulator.

Once you have the window out, you can then remove the regulator. The instructions for that is below.

I am not sure what you mean about the "rocker arm" is in a different position. I do know the pieces your are replacing should be the same, and you'll need to have the regulator in the same position when you install as when you removed.

The instructions i was following stated to tape the window in the up position to the door frame, and then remove the inside door panel the the water deflector and then the lectrical harnesses. The window was not working so how would I get it into the half way down position?

Step 4 states to remove the window "run" channels. Below is the procedure for removing the channels which should allow for window movement.
