WHAT ARE THE ROUTINGS FOR THE DRIVERS SIDE WINDOW MOTOR CABLES? THE MOTOR AND CABLES ARE BETWEEN DOOR PANELS AND DIFFICULT TO REACH. I CAN INSTALL THE MOTOR, BUT NEED HELP FOR THE CABLE ROUTING.
Do you
have the same problem?

Ok there is no routing for the cable here is what it say's for motor replacement.
1. Remove door trim panel and protective shield. Put glass in full up possition and tape in place. Disconnect neg. Batt. Cable. Disconnect window motor harness connector.
2. Using a 1/4 inch drill bit remove the 3 window regulator bracket rivets from the door. Move motor with drive cables attached, so motor retaining screws can be reached. Remove window motor retaining screws (torx).
3. Seperate window motor from the regulator. Remove window motor thru access hole in door. Install in reverse order. That is all it say's to do. There is no mention of cable routing. I hope this helps

Unfortunately this answer did not help. I removed the motor and repaired the broken cable. I can install the motor OK but need help in routing the cables as they are between the door shells. Thank you for trying.

They say you replace it as a unit as such.

Thank you for the picture of the window motor assembly. It doesn't help me because I have the part on my bench and need to know where the cables are routed.
If this is the best you can offer please refund my donation of $20. Thank you. Alfred Krome

The cable is under tension from top to bottom as it is wound around the wheel where the motor bolts up. It goes from the spool (motor) over the pulleys to the slider where the window mount is. We can't find any pics for you, but you can pull the passenger side door panel and look at the regulator for reference.
