I went to roll up my window on Sat and it started making a loud clicking noise and wouldn't roll up. The mechanic says that the regulartor is broken. He wants to change the motor as well b/c he said the motor will "eat up" the new regulator. He originally quoted me $240 but now says it will be $500. Am I getting hosed?

If your car is a coupe, then, according to realoem. Com, the driver's side regulator will cost about 160 bucks retail. I don't think I spent more than two hours doing it the last time I changed one. I've never had any problems arising from reusing the motor, but maybe he has.

Good Luck.

Ask to see the broken parts and find out what his motive is, it could be $$$
