I rebuild the Ford ones for maybe $15 each and they then last longer than the OEM Ford ones do but haven't done a Nissan one yet.

With 20 off thats a pretty good price for doing all four doors. I can't make up my mind if I want to go through the hassle for power windows or not. I'm definitely doing power locks this spring, and some speaker upgrades, but power windows I'm on the fence.

Got a point, but Im one of those "while you are in there" type of guys. Ive already tinted the windows, upgraded the speakers and installed the vents above them.

Plan B would be to just get the 4 door lock kit and wireless alarm with monitor keyfob.

If you do it I'd be most interested to see where you find a good place for the switches. I am having a hard time picturing where the big drivers switch panel could go and not look out of place, wonder if it would fit in the map pocket?

I've been thinking about it all week and I'm thinking power windows probably are worth the work. Like you said, get it done while you are already in there. I wish ebay would give me one of those 20 off coupons... doing all four doors power locks and windows for under $100 is a pretty good deal.

So, when you go to the ebay home page you do not see an ad of a guy working on a car and the discount code if you spend 100 or more on auto stuff?

Once I make my purchase Ill post the code. I may end up using it to buy a new full size spare tire for my suzuki sidekick ljx.

Well, I got a tire for my other car. The code is or as CMOTORS217. Ive decided I rather get a set of door locks with an alarm system. They had a few for around 80 bucks. Im also checking with one of those alarm, window tint, pimp my ride places to see what they charge.

I as usual could be totally full of crap but it seems like getting all that for $100 is screaming cheap Chinese crap to me.........................

AND after much repair of them you find out something else. Many of the motors used now are dead-end motors with no limit switches to cut them off, they have just enough (you HOPE! It CAN be a problem!) torque to get the window up then they dead head at the end of travel and stall the motor out until you release the switch. What that does is make power windows break about 5-10 times as much as manual ones do and even the best OEM ones. When winding a manual window by hand you instinctively back off as soon as you hit the end limit, you can feel it with your hand. The electric drive motor on power stuff feels no such compunction. It continues to drive until you let off and you can only hear the clunk as the window hits solid as a rock in the end of groove. That's after the fact and why power windows break regulators WAY more than manual do now, and it's added to the child protection feature many systems have now that break parts at the drop of a hat when the motor loads up hard, it's a child with head in window opening safety protection thing.

How I learned how to make Ford power windows not break on the average of one or two a year, a mark to stop at about 1/8" BELOW max up and you NEVER roll them the full 100% down any more either. BOOM! NO more breaking of the windows since doing it!

Maybe you should only let adults in your vehicles?

Plan B could be to use a small fuse on each one or a resettable braker.

Everything now days is from China and cheap. The big difference is the cost of including instructions in English.
