I got the motor/regulator out today. I ended up getting to the bolt through the speaker hole, it was slow going but it worked. When I got it out I tested it again using a couple of leads just like I did while it was still in the door and what do you know... it worked. Not sure why it didn’t work in the door. So, I thought it was probably the switch, but when I used the switch it still worked. Maybe the motor was just jammed/stuck? I had cleaned and checked the connections before anything else. Who knows?
Now I just have to wait on the door handle I ordered to replace the one I broke getting the door panel off. And yes, I used the instructions from a DYI thread but, I still managed to break it.
I’m also going to replace the front speakers while I have the one door panel off already, they needed to be replaced anyway. Any recommendations on speakers that would be a good replacement for the stock system. I don’t want to have to modify anything.
I believe it’s the premium system with the tweeters that are attached by a little bracket (where the mirrors are) behind snap on grills. <if that helps>
