Drivers door window winder mechanism

Recommended Posts

Have an 02 RAV4 4door Auto (petrol) and have noticed that the drivers window is starting be very slow, so looked for a replacement, Online Automotive shows 2 types for my car, Does anyone know which one I should purchase? My last RAV4 (a generation one) cable broke and window dropped open, various web searches show cable operation AND gear driven motor variants, thanks in anticipation.

Without taking the door card off... you could try lubricating the window channels with silican spray.  Any motor or mechanism will struggle if the window channels are hanging up.  Worth trying first if you have not already done it.
