Choosing the Right Nissan Window Regulator
The Nissan window regulator is responsible for moving your window up and down. Because the window regulator plays a crucial role in the operation of your window, it’s important to make sure that it is in good condition at all times.
If you’re starting to have difficulty moving one or several windows up and down, have your vehicle checked right away. If it is indeed the window regulator that is faulty, have them replaced right away.
Here are some tips to help you find the best window regulator for your Nissan:
Determine the appropriate type of window regulator for your vehicle.
Nissan window regulators are available in two main types: scissor-type and cable type.
The main arm of this type of regulator is intersected by a smaller secondary arm, which moves along a groove in the window tray as the window slides up and down.
In cases wherein the scissor-type assembly is power-operated, the regulator is then fitted with a gear that engages with the teeth to move the arms. If there is no power motor, a manual crank lever is used instead.
This type of window regulator is commonly installed in most modern vehicle models. In a cable-type system, a power motor or manual crank moves the cables to a window tray. Since these cables suspend the complete load of your vehicle window the window glass will directly fall into the door panel in case it breaks.
Choose between manual and power regulator.
Generally, scissor-type and cable-type window regulators can be engineered for manual setup with a lever positioned in the door panel to move the glass window up and down. In manual operation, you will physically operate the window crank through the lever.
On the other hand, a power-operated regulator has the electric motor to move the window glass. Because a power regulator assembly is made to fit snugly with tight clearances, windows that are not regularly cleaned will have a distinct drag, making them hard to slide up and down.
Lastly, it is always recommended to get a Nissan window regulator from a reliable and established supplier.
