Perhaps you have wondered what mechanism is used that makes the rising and lowering motion of your power window possible. Actually, this can only be achieved when the rotary motion of the motor is converted into linear or vertical movement. This is where the window regulator comes in the picture. Helping this amazing component to do its job are the power window components such as the electric motor, worm gear and the spur gears. The collective effort of each component is the key to generate efficient torque necessary to lift the window. In reality, both manually operated windows and power windows do use window regulator. The only difference is that the latter is more convenient to use, allowing only a button push. In manual windows, the operating lever is used instead. When the worm spins the gear, the friction is created and causes the gear to bind. The gears will now lock themselves in such a way that windows cannot be opened forcibly. Power windows on the other hand employ an electronic motor which is attached to a certain electronic module of the vehicle and is controlled by pushing a button or other devices. There will come a time that your window regulator will become faulty and will fail to perform like it should. In most cases, the best solution to this problem is replacement.
