Re: Window Bang/Skipping Gears?

No, I doubt your problem comes from the thermal switch. As stated, it's built into the motor, but also it doesn't trigger until the motor is stalled for a while. I don't know the exact time until it opens, but I'd guess it's a minute or so. If your clicking noises happen as soon as the window hits the stop, then that has nothing to do with the thermal cutoff.

Instead, my guess is the regulator gear, tape, or the worm gear in the motor is skipping. I noticed that your video only shows it making the noise when the window is all the way down. If it only makes the noise when it's all the way down then my guess is that the regulator is damaged, but I'd still check that every thing is tight before buying a new regulator .
