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.

Hi, I have a slightly different problem. When I lift the door handle the window drops, but when the door handle is released it returns to the fully up position. So when you close the door, it returns to the up position before the door has has closed, as in as soon as you release the door handle.

Hi Martin. Just chiming in because I know you are looking for info. My problem was fixed with a replacement regulator, but your problem does not sound like what a failing regulator would do since your glass moves up and down. Unfortunately, I do not know what causes the window to move back up or rather refrain from moving back up. Sounds like there may be some kind of switch that informs whether the door is open or closed. Will the overhead light go on and off with the door opening and closing?

The Passenger side unit works much better than the Drivers. https://www.allstarsprinklerrepairtampa.com
