Hi.

Both rear windows on my Accord 07 EX Sedan are making this noise when going up and down.

I showed it to Honda dealer and they said will take $320 per side to replace regulators.

I ordered regulators online and have basic wrench and body panel trimming kit.
As per what I can do, since owning this car for past 3+ weeks I took off bumper to TRY repair a crack, changed engine oil, flushed power steering fluid and replaced all brake pads.

Do you suggest giving it a go at home and if so can some one point me to a DIY/scanned service manual pages for removing rear panel and regulators for my model.

Please suggest.

Thanks

No problem, first lower the glass all the way down. then use your trim tool to pry out on teh rear portion of the cover (A in pic) to release the hooks (B,C in pic), then remove the cover and the screws securing the inner handle on.
