what regulator is the right regulator


My window regulator has failed. The star shaped axle in the setup has worn out.

As there are no new replacements available, I have to seek out a replacement on the web.

However here there are various ways to describe the window regulator (such as "not the microswitch version", "phase 2", etc.). Obviously i'm a newbie in these terms.

So I really do not know which one "defines" the regulator i need.

Can anyone give me some guidance on what I really need to chaco before I purchase the replacement spare

Other than for the side of the car ( left, right ) there are two versions of regulator as you have found.

One is for cars made before June 2000 and is sometimes referred to by sellers as '2 pin'. The other type was for cars built from June 2000, These regulators drop the window a little when the door is opened and raise it again when the door is shut. These regulators are sometimes referred to as 'autodrop', 4 pin or as having a microswitch.

So, if your car was built after June 2000 and the windows normally drop when the door is opened, you need the microswitch version ( autodrop, 4 pin ).
