1999 Boxster Window regulator

My 1999 Boxster seems to have a failed drivers side window regulator. The window doesn't drop the small amount when the outside handle is moved. Today when I drove it there is a grinding against glass sound when the window is actuated, both up and down.
So I've been quoted $650 to replace, etc.

How does this sound, I'm in the Dallas/Fort Worth area /

Thks,
Gary

Hi Gary,

Were you able to get this resolved, and was it the regulator? I am having the same problem with my 2000, although no grinding. It all seems to work ok, but the glass does not drop, and I can manipulate its position a bit by hand if I try.

This will definitely be the window mechanism. The cable stretches as it ages, resulting in slack that results in the window not moving enough. I replaced my window mechanisms (both drivers and then passenger not long after). I replaced the Drivers side with a genuine Porsche unit which was expensive and worked OK. The Passenger side I replaced with a URO premium unit which have ball bearings instead of bushes. The Passenger side unit works much better (smoother and faster) than the Drivers.
