My rear window had stopped going up and down, so I'd left it up for quite a while.

Decided to tackle it today, and I can see the cables had come off the rollers. The rollers are not cracked at all.

Question is, how the heck to I get them back on? They seem to tight, especially on the upper one, and its very difficult to get to.

Anyone have any tips? At this point I have a window that's not going to stay up.

The actuator works fine, it just seems to be the cables that are the issue.

Thanks!!!

I was finally able to get the upper cable loose enough to loop it around the upper roller, using the hooked end of a bicycle spoke. I think they are tangled up somewhere around the regulator, but I can't see it. Cut up forearms and tired, its back together with the window securely up but not going anywhere. I disconnected the switch so there isnt any inadvertent lowering of it.

Anyone have any idea what this would cost for a competent shop or the dealer to rectify? I am not about to be drilling out the rivets for the regulator and tackling this myself on my daily...


Thanks again. What a job!

One to two hours labor times 40 to 200 $ per hour !
Better is $50 for a drill, bits and some hardware; the drilling op is EZ, IMO.
I do not recall any cables in my '96 900S....rearwindow - from 5 years ago...
Today is "drill out" day...
