I noticed the other day when I was rolling down the windows, the passenger one is REALLY slow compared to the others
what does this indicate?

I assume both fixes are a 'panel off' affair either way?

Yes
IMO motor failure is a regulator out affair too

is that a pain in the ass to do?
If I'm yanking door panels, I might upgrade my speakers and get new clips to hold the doors on.

For you? or your mechanic?...... Laughing

You'll feel like a gynecologist.

You'll understand when you go to do it. Arrow

I assume you're talking about the vapor barrier.

also, is this one of those instances where the window may crash down into the door unexpectedly?

The window crashes only if it disconnects from its plastic slides.
Rarely do they both go at once, you get that tip before all out crash.
The slides get replaced with plastic rollers when they fail.
Its only a pia but only because of the access.
Set aside some time & work slowly, it'll keep from bleeding as much

Agreed.

Laughing

I'm trying to flash back.
I think there are 4 holes, IIR the lower holes are larger...IDK.
None of which are small enough to let you in but not out.
If you can take the door panels off to get a look, your 1/2 way there.
Either way the door panels have to come off.
Maybe theres a UTube?

yeah, I'm not too worried. I got access to little armed fellas in a pinch (at some point today I'll make a point without any innuendo, I swear)

I'm not too worried though, I've worked in cramped door panels before without issue, but I know it can be frustrating.
