PostSubject: Window Rollers   Sun Sep 13, 2009 5:56 pm

I got so sick of rolling my window down only to have it go west. So Today I took some time and installed the drivers door rollers. I still have to do the passenger rear one.

The old slider


The broken slider


Two new rollers


I pulled the glass out of the door to make it easier to install the rollers plus I wanted to take off the faded old tint.


A quick moment with a c-clamp to snap the window lift into the roller


After a good greasing she works like a charm

Pull the door panels off (very carefully) and we can do it after you get out of work thurs.

It's not that hard to do the fronts. The rear doors suck more since you need to work around or remove the bracket that holds the interior handle and stuff.

Good job, Billy! It's really amazing how simple those are to do!

And use the "macro" setting on your camera for close-ups. It looks like a flower. It helps. Smile

Anyone know where I can find the retainers? Rockauto, Napa and Autozone do not have them by pn 15600382. GM parts direct wants to sell me 20 packages @ $50. Screw that. I have a feeling I need to do this as my driver side rear window has decided it resents the rest of the door and now tries its hardest to not go back up, including eating the weather stripping and getting stuck. Its almost adorable Mad

Supposedly you can find equivilent ones at a parts store in the help section. I've yet to find them though. I think I got mine from gmpartsdirect and ended up getting 2 packs so I could do all four doors at once. Each pack has 5 rollers and the windows only use 2 rollers per door.

You want to see what they're going for now check out this place

YES! Autozone sells the rollers for $5.99 each under Dorman part number 74444. Rockauto carries them under this number as well for a bit cheaper. Also found the retainers on ebay for $6.99 for 25. I'm going to order this stuff next week and hopefully get it done before 'Fest if my back is up to it.

I have to do this on my rear window.. any words of advice from someone who had done it before before I start? I really dont want to break any hard to find clips/molding in the process. Also I got my kit from NASSIO .. did I pay too much? From what people said here I think I did!!
