I have an 87 vette I ordered a power window ribbon and got one that has the years 84- 86 on it. Am I able to use this or was I sent the wrong one??

Asked by Sep 26, 2013 at 09:26 PM about the 1987 Chevrolet Corvette Coupe

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

1 Answer

85

There are two types of power window setups: the ribbon (early) and the scissor (late) regulators. The ribbon was a 1984-85 thing but, you may have had a door swap. A Corvette ribbon is a Corvette ribbon and they are of one basic design. If you are going to keep the car, the extra expense of installing a scissors regulator is worth the cost: faster, smoother and more reliable.
