Quality

  • Be confident this part will work right. Every regulator is tested after assembly to make sure the cables and all mechanisms are working correctly.
  • It is important that your new regulator works for a long period of time. The design of this regulator is tested to withstand 10,000 cycles. That is enough to raise and lower your window 3 times per day for 9 years.
  • Nothing is more frustrating than taking your car apart and finding the part you purchased does not fit. You want the part to fit. This design is test fit on an actual door. When you install it you will have no issues.

Value

  • Windows that don't work can be frustrating. They can also hurt your vehicles value. An inoperable window could mean $200-$500 discounted off a dealer trade value or asking price.
  • Some shops and dealers charge more for parts and repairs when they think you don't know what is involved. Now you can get the value you deserve. Knowing what this repair entails can be the difference between the value of doing it yourself, or the pain of a costly repair bill.

Easy, especially with the step-by-step video.
Fast shipping combined with the easily understood installation video made replacing the window regulator assembly a cinch. The part cost was 1/4 of what a dealer would charge and 1/3 of the local auto parts stores.

I will definitely visit 1A Auto for my next repair.

My window works again!
This is the first time that I've had to replace a power window regulator on any vehicle, and didn't know how to do it. I found a 1A Auto video on YouTube about it, and it linked to the part I needed. The price was right, so I ordered it and, with the help of the video, got it installed on my 2004 Malibu Maxx. It works great! The hardest part was getting the little plug into the hole at the bottom of the window (where it attaches to the regulator arm). I'm very pleased that I was able to do this myself, and I expect that I saved a lot of money by not having it done at the Chevy dealer.

Right decision
Received the right part, right on time. And, at a substantial savings off what I would have paid at the local parts store.
1A Auto was the right choice and will be my first choice in the future.

Found company on-line. Great service, very knowledgeable on product lines, great rate, 1AAuto rate $54.95, local store $139, timely delivery, exact duplicate of OEM part, and the best are their videos on how to remove and replace parts. Will use again plus tell my friends about this company
