2001 Oldsmobile Aurora rear door panel removal

03-22-2007, 08:22 PM
The right rear window regulator on my 2001 Oldsmobile Aurora has failed and I need to replace it. Although I'm pretty-well mechanically inclined, I'm not infallible and I don't fancy having to replace an obviously expensive door panel in the process.

Does anyone know the proper procedure for removing the right-rear door panel on this car? Information about where to find the procedure (preferrably without charge) online would also be appreciated!

A little late but here is a link to the Pontiac Bonneville site showing how to remove the door panels. It is very similiar.
I have replaced both of my rear regulators. Bought a rebuilt one from ebay. Uses larger cable and new rub blocks. Looks and works great.

I've just changed the motor and regulator for this door as well. This is the second one that has been changed. Both rear passenger windows stopped working. The motor cost $650 in Canada and when I saw this thread and that I could buy it on eBay, that is what I did. the instructions here were a real help. The only trouble I had was to disconnect the plug from the old motor. It gave me a real fight.

The instructions here for the right rear window, are they the same as for the other windows?

Finally a topic that I have some EXCELLENT knowledge about! I had to disassemlbe my right rear window because the window quit going up and down. Found out that the wiring on the window regulator broke! The motor and everything else was perfect. Asked the dealer about how much a NEW window regulator would cost and I got a quote of $675.00. Called junk yards for possible parts and one guy wanted $250.00 for a window regulator that came out of an Olds with 103,000 miles on it. Then I searched the internet and found the following website:

Alexander was GREAT!!!! The entire experience I think cost me around $85.00 and that included shipping! Ofcourse I wasn't sure that I would get the part back, but you know what, Alexander not only fixed it better than before by using a heavier gauge wire, but he fixed it and returned it in less than 7 days! If you have a window regulator that needs fixing this is the guy to send it to!!! He is as honest as the day is long, and he is in New York and I'm in North Carolina! I can't tell you how pleased I was with his work! You will NOT be sorry you did business with him! FANTASTIC SERVICE!

By the way, it wonderful to say that about somebody's ethics and values these days!
