Extremely pleased
I recently purchased this window regulator with motor for my 2004 Ford explorer. I was very pleased with how precisely the product fit,all the holes and electrical connections, everything fit perfectly. I actually found through the YouTube video I watched on how to replace this assembly. Between that video with step-by-step instructions and the quality of the product the repair was simple .

Great experience!
Had to replace the driver-side door window regulator on my 2003 Ford Explorer. Great video instructions - couldnt have done it otherwise! (Only minor issue was the rivets you have to drill out on the 2003 Explorer were a smaller size than mentioned in the video. Careful!!) The part fit well and shipping was fast! Thanks! A+

It went in good. The vids are definitely helpful. Works well. There is a slight rattle in the door now, but not sure what could be. The price was great. Would definitely recommend the product and the website.

Finally a quality replacement
This has been my fourth replacement. First two were of a different brand that I bought online and both failed within months in between. The 3rd was from pep boys and that one lasted a year then it failed. 1A Auto had the particular brand I wanted so I gave it a shot. I was impressed with 1A autos quick shipping and totally impressed with the build quality of the part. I hope this will be my last replacement.

Window Actuator
Part is exactly as the OEM without being an OEM. FIt is perfect for the 2003 (3rd generation) Ford Explorer Eddie Bauer. Material is lighter than OEM though so make sure all fasteners are tightened down and loctited to avoid loosening or rattling as I some initial rattling. Would by again if needed as this part is about $20 cheaper than the typical Autozone.

Will this fit my car? Add a vehicle to make sure
