At least your door switch is only 11 bux. Mine is like 400 bux even tho the car is 20 years old. I bet yours took all of 20 minutes to install too? Sometimes I wish I didn't drive a Volkswagen.

It took about 1.5 minutes to swap out. A single LARGE Phillips head screw and one connection.

Oh **** off man! I haven't ordered one for the past 4 years for 2 reasons:

1 - it's ******* 400 bux
2 - I have to disassemble my entire inner door, pull the glass out, remove the latch plate AND outer door handle, and then I can Undo the 3 torx bolts(specialist size obviously) and then unplug the connector with 9 freaking wires. But before I can pull it out I have to Undo a small screw on the side(Phillips, lol) and remove a little arm that actuates the lock "indicator" and connects to the inner door handle.

Damnit, I'm just going to 1.8t swap an accord or something.

I had to replace one on my G6 GT. Didn't have to remove the glass but I did have to remove the outer door handle. It was not fun.

Mine on the '03 Explorer are relatively easy at least the one was that I did on the driver side. Parts are not too bad overall on this '03 Explorer for the most part.

Now changing out a window motor....UGH What a MAJOR PITA! I still haven't done it on my Drivers side rear because you have to yank out the entire regulator assembly which normally isn't hard. But on these they leave you with no room at all. Even dealerships and local shops refuse to do them unless you are persistent about it and then they all charge 150-200 for labor for it as it takes around 2-2.5 hours usually to do it. My '99 Grand Cherokee took 5 minutes to swap those motors all held in by 3 nuts that bolted to the studs the motor came built with.

3 amplifiers, each getting short runs of CCA 4awg. from Knukonceptz. Got the ferrules and 3:1 heat shrink on.

Those make a clean connection rather than having to fuss with loose strands. Nice choice! I like them myself
