My driver's door 3-wire regulator is bad.

I need a either:
a good 3-wire driver's door regulator with or without motor
or a good 2-wire regulator motor preferably with the regulator.

If someone has a completed 3-wire to 2-wire relay harness I'd be interested.

The two wire regulators are still available new, and there was a technical service bulletin issued in March of 1988 that explains how to to the conversion from 3 wire regulators to 2 wire regulators. It's under repair work order number 72/7. It gives the part numbers for everything you need and how/where to mount the extra parts. The harness for the conversion wasn't ever something that was available because it had to be made up on the spot.

I spoke with Tom Hanson. He doesn't have the motor for the 2 wire regulator.

I found one on eBay. Get OEM, those $100 Chinese versions are worthless.

Stanford, I have a 69 parts car here and it has the 3 wire windows. I will check and see if I have a good regulator out of it.

I wasn't talking about the motor. I was making reference to the regulator itself. Good used motors with the two wires can be found on the regular in our community an/or on ebay and the like.

Stanford, if you are talking about the regulator, itself, order a new one from Tom. I think these are cast aluminum but subject to metal fatigue. They bend over time but break when you try to straighten them.

The aftermarket regulator I purchased from these folks for less than $50 delivered is galvanized steel and better quality than the OEM . . . FWIW

The picture in the link you included shows the regulator to still have a cast aluminum framework. Is what you received different than what is in the picture?

I bought a similar regulators for my W108 the casting were so poor that they were cracked into several pieces just from shipping.

Here is the fix I did, taking the good brand new gears from the broken cast one and putting into the old steel frame.
