A couple of weeks ago the electric window (front passenger side) on my VT Commodore packed it in. I decided to have a crack at fixing it myself. With guidance from this forum I've been able to get to the point where the regulator is installed.

I can't however work out how the regulator locks into the glass so that it moves it up and down.

Any help would be most appreciated.

You have to make sure you have the window sliders in the tracks before you rivet the regulator into place. It is easier if the window is about half way up when doing this. The pivot plate (the small track thing) is done last.

I can see two tracks at the bottom of the window. Are there any others?

Can you tell me which arms go in which track?

Thanks.

Thanks guys. With the aid of your responses (especially the photos) I've been able to complete installation of the the regulator. The power window works perfectly once again!
