    Default HQ-WB power windows

    hey guys just wondering who has had any sucess with aftermarket power window kits???? i have bought an aftermarket power window kit but im not 100% happy with it....its a kit that has a remote motor and there is an arm that goes up around the original winder spline....i notice that it doesnt seem to have a lot of tourque and is slow to wind the window up..i have lubricated everything many times its as free as it gets now but still not happy with it...i notice that the stock HQ-WB ones have the motor attatched directly to the main sprocket of the winder mechanism and i think thats where its loosing it tourque as compared to the multi fit types like i have got.....

    so just wondering if its worth sticking with it or just looking for a stock power window kit??? i also saw that the nv commodore ones seems similar but would be a pain in the ass to modify i think.... does any body have any experince with the aftermarket kits???

    Hi mate, I'm trying to adapt GQ Patrol motors to my manual winder splines.
    I'll let you know how it goes.
    Cheers

    I'd say you will want the power window regulators, they provide the extra leverage required. I've been told that some Honda motors are an easy adaptation for a bit of extra grunt over the original ones.

    Which bit? Not the Honda motors, just something I've been told by someone else but can't be too hard to investigate.

    As far as the regulators go I believe there is an extra reduction in the electric versions - it doesn't slow the window as the motors wind faster than a person anyway, but it provides more torque to lift the glass. Just had a look in a Scientific Publications HQ workshop manual for a pic but it only shows the manual version and I don't have any other manuals here.

    yer thats what it needs bud more tourque...im not azed on how fast it goes but it needs that tourque to push the widow up and into the bailey channel to seal it better as the ones i have got only gets to the rubber and sort of stops and doesnt actually give that last little bit it needs to drive it home into the rubber......i was looking at trying to adapt any other sort of reg that has the extra tourque which i think would be a btter way to go as i think my kit looses the tourque required over the length of the arm that goes up to the winder arm......this is the kit i have....

    Interested to know also what other people have done. I was looking at aftermarket kits from US cars that may be similar but it was too hard to get the info it needed to see if it would work or not.

    hi
    Even thou the original ones may fit better ,quite often the drivers door unit is well worn . It is always best to have new baily channel and new inner and outer glass seals to help guide the glass up and down . Currently redoing a set in mine . I need new rollers for the regulator arms . The rollers control the glass angle when it goes up/down . To much angle and the glass either tries to fall out and wedges or just wedges .
    Remember the motors need stripping cleaning and inspection . Then relube bushings & reassemble . Fit relays as they draw a lot of amperage or they will burn out your switches.

    Thanks for the feedback Swampy, what about the Bluewire kit? I do not want to try source original units would prefer to use the kit on offer. I assume that the kit works of the manual winder splines...just wondering if it effective and worth converting? Anyone used one before?

    Why not just go and get original power doors with rust in them for the mechs?
