My driver's door window motor went bad months ago. I finally got around to ordering a new one. The new part finally came in so time to install it.
Unfortunately, the dealership sent me the wrong part number and the wiring harness didn't match up. Be sure you are getting part #80731-EA005. They sent me the same part with EA500. Oops! Here is the correct part:
Everything in this job requires a 10mm socket.
Step one, remove the drive's door panel. I think there is already a how-to on this so I will not redo it.
Step 2, lower the window to line up the mounting bolds to the holes in the sheet metal.
There are two screws holding it in. I was able to reconnect the window switch and smacked the motor to roll down the window. In doing so it made the bolt on the right side line up with a hole in the sheet metal where I could access it with a socket.
Remove the door glass from the track. Once the window is disconnected from the track it is best if you can tape it in the up position, but if not, lower it all the way down so it doesn't drop.
Step 3, remove all of the bolts attaching the window track (4 bolts) and the window motor (3 bolts). With the glass up and out of the way you should be able to maneuver the window track and motor out of the lower left opening.
I had the glass all the way down, but I had to use one hand to lift it out of the way to make room for the motor to get out. Otherwise, there just isn't enough room.
Step four, remove the three screws that are holding the motor to the regulator and swap it for the new motor. You may have to move the window guide up or down on the track to get the motor drive to line up inside the regulator.
Step five, put it all back in reverse. Move the window out of the way to put the motor and track back in, reattach motor and track to the door, attach window to the track, put door panel back together. It is probably a good idea to test the motor with the switch prior to putting everything back together.
