Can I easily make a power window manual

Asked by Dec 01, 2016 at 11:50 AM about the 2004 Chevrolet Cavalier LS Sedan FWD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

All the window motors burned out and I'd rather make them all manual than
have to replace motors that will burn out again.

No, the car is set up with power windows, The vehicle did not come with manual regulators so no easy modification.

Really old cars simply had a strap attached to the bottom of the window. You pulled on it to raise the window but wouldn't it be better and simpler to fix them the correct way? Manual window mechanisms also wear out.
