Having problems with your 2002 Dodge Grand Caravan ?
I am replacing the driver's side power window motor. The chilton's manual indicates that the new motor should be installed first and then the cable drum and cable guide removed and set on the new motor. Are there any special tricks associated with the cable drum / cable guide that I should be aware of prior to taking it off the old motor? Thank you in advance.
I was able to complete the installation, but with modifications. The essential part of the process is being careful with the removal of the existing motor and taking care to remove the regulator hub assembly without moving it or having the wires un-spool. The only other issue was the rubber gromments used during the factory installation of the window motor. The metal thread collar within the gromments fuses to the bolt making it nearly impossible to remove the fasterners. The trick is to cut the rubber grommet away and fabricate your own rubber-ized isolation fasteners. I was able to do this with some plumbing washers, new screws and fender plates held in place with nylock nuts. This was not too diffucult a project, just needed to excercise care.
