Making your own mounting hardware for '97+ regulators


Recommended Posts

I obtained 97 doors from CL and a set of regulators from ebay. Problem is, I didn't receive any bolts to mount them up properly. My regulators did come with the three nuts to hold the motor assembly into the door. Since I had an abundance of T25 bolts from body panel swaps, I got creative.

 

Tools required(started with dremel but switch to cutter for sake of time):

 

 

I cut 5 standard body panel T25 bolts to various sizes.

 

 

These sizes prevented the standard size bolt from rubbing on any other moving pieces. Mainly the ones attaching the regulator to the glass, since there is barely any clearance between the rail and the inner door frame.

 

 

The bolts were a bit of a tight fit at first, but went in just fine. It just took a little pressure to get them started. This is a very convenient solution to having no mounting bolts for the regulators.
