Asked by Aug 06, 2009 at 05:03 PM about the 1997 Chevrolet Camaro

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 97 Camaro Z-28 i'm selling but i think the drivers side window motor is going cuz it keeps quitting, any idea how hard they are to change? The window will quit sometimes then you have to wait two minutes or more and it'll only roll up another inch or two each time.

itz actually not too hard.you have to remove the interior door panel then cut a slit in the plastic underneath.then u have to put the window at a certiain heigh to line up with holes in the metal for a socket.jus look for 2 holes in the metal that are at the same height and they r the ones you line it up with.then when they r off u need ta take out the glass.most cars require you to tip the window on an angle for it ta pull up and out.when that done its just a matter of puttin the arms for the power motor al the way down,this makes it so u can slide it thru whatever openin u have,then dissconect the harness on the motor.then slide out the old motor,which in sum cars can be difficult,then put the new one in and reverse the steps
