Default Broken Window Cable

I have a broken driver door window cable in my 02 silverado.
Can you replace just the cable, or do it come as a unit cables and motor?
Are there instructions to do this anywhere?
Thanks, John.

it comes as a complete assembly with motor. Try searching window regulator and they are about 100 buck shipped online. It a not very hard to replace if you have a little mechanical knowlege.

I suppose you can buy the whole assembly if you want to but that's not necessary. Then again if you can get a GM regulator and motor for less than $100, that's not a bad deal.

The cable in my truck's driver's side door broke a year ago and I replaced the regulator only. Here's the GM bulletin which addresses this;

Body - Window Regulator Replacement

Bulletin No.: 05-08-64-029B

Date: February 16, 2006

Power Window Regulator Now Available Separately From Motor

2002-2006 Cadillac Escalade, Escalade EXT
2003-2006 Cadillac Escalade ESV
2000-2006 Chevrolet Silverado, Suburban, Tahoe
2002-2006 Chevrolet Avalanche
2000-2006 GMC Sierra, Yukon Denali, Yukon XL


This bulletin is being revised to add the service procedure. Please discard Corporate Bulletin Number 05-08-64-029A (Section 08 - Body and Accessories). This bulletin is being issued to inform technicians that when performing a repair to the power window system, it is no longer necessary to replace the complete window regulator assembly. GMSPO has released the power window regulator for the left and right front doors separately from the motor.
I hope this helps.

2002 Silverado LS ECSB K2500 HD w/6.0 L, 4L80E, 4.10, G80 diff., Nelson Performance-tuned PCM, Corsa exhaust, Outlaw intake.
