Lotus Elan Window regulator replacement
When do Lotus Elan window regulators need to be replaced?
A Lotus Elan window regulator is located inside the door panel on all doors that have an operating window. To access them you have to remove the internal door trim, inside the door is the regulator which is part of the power window assembly. Car windows utilise a motor or regulator to raise and lower the window.
When you push the window operation button it sends a message out to the Lotus Elan's window regulator to kick into gear. When a window regulator fails it's not just irritating it can also be a little frustrating as it can sometimes work and then not at other times.
Telltale signs the window regulator is on its way out is when the speed becomes erratic, either really slow or really fast. You may notice some clunking or grinding noise from inside the door and the window may be uneven or fall down when the window is meant to be up. The most obvious sign is the Lotus Elan's window won't work when you want it to.
Over time, window regulators will wear out or break and may need to be replaced – that’s a job AutoGuru can help you with!
