Window regulator assembly is one of the many components installed in every vehicle that are a must have working item. This component raises and lowers the window glasses, allowing both the vehicle driver and passengers to lower or raise the door window whenever they need to. New window winding mechanisms permit the driver a full control all over all the windows in the vehicle. As with access to the door window regulator, the passenger seating near the windows can operate it themselves.
There are two types of door window regulators; the manual window regulator and the electric window regulator. A manual window regulator structure is composed of many parts including a worm gear, several spur gears, linkages, a mechanical plate and a bar used to support the window glass. The rotation of the various gears in turn activates the mechanical plate, thus raising or lowering the window glasses. The function of the window bar and the linkage arm is basically to support the window glass bar and the linkage arm is basically to support the window glass. This can be operated manually by rotating the crank handle.
The electric window regulator, also known as the power window regulator or automatic window regulator, basically does the same thing, except that everything is performed automatically by a push button. A small electric motor integrated with the switching components of the vehicle is responsible for activating the different gears required to lift or to lower the windows.
Replacing a manual window regulator would cost a bit lesser than replacing a power window regulator.
