Default Quick question on window regulator

Hi all.. have a question..

I need to buy another regulator (this one makes #3)
My driver's rear window regulator likes to break the rolling guides on the reg..

My car has the auto up down (pinch protection). Can I just use a aftermarket regulator? Will the original motor with pinch protection work on it.. or do I need to spend another 200 bux oem?

Thanks for your help!!

Highly recommend OEM unless you want to replace the regulator again in a year. But yes you can pair the OEM motor to aftermarket regulator.

Don't get me wrong I would get oem but both oem regulator pink guide roller (top one) shattered.. (original lasted 10 years second one shattered in 4 in the winter) at this rate it's cheaper if I just replace it every year with a aftermarket heh

I just replaced my driver side front door regulator last week, works fine so far, it is aftermarket part though.
