Pros: Fits and functions

Cons: Reuse old bolts clips, Difficult to attach reg

A fine , fitting, functional motor, BUT: If you haven't done this job before, buy the entire regulator and motor for easy installation. Otherwise,first tape window closed, remove old motor-without removing regulator- install new motor on door, use 2 hands to release spring tension from regulator, and 2 hands to remove the plastic spool and whatchamacallit from the old unit and put on new.
I was 2 hands short, and the spool came unwound, resulting in an epic struggle that caused me to buy the entire unit- which comes with new bolts and door panel clips, neither of which come with this motor.
