Hey guys,
My son has a '97 Camaro that needs a driver side window motor. I plan on drilling the inner panel and drilling the rivets on the motor and replacing the motor. My question is: the rivets holding the regulator are also loose causing the regulator to slide up and down. The previous owner has already taken some self tapping screws and screwed them in next to the rivets in the regulator to tighten it up. Should I go ahead and replace the regulator now or at least drill out the rivets and replace them? And I was considering replacing the rivets even if I don't replace the regulator using some 1/4" pan head screws and lock nuts. Would that work? Thanks, Matt.

Here's what I posted a couple years ago...

Door windows are a big issue on 4th gens in general... The motors are weak and the windows are large and heavy. Most long term 4th gen owners become familar with replacing the window motors at some point. A new motor, a drill and a few hand tools and some patience and things will be as good as new...

I used this when I had to do one on my '96 SS when I had it.
