My drivers side window lift motor has died... its a 1984 Chevy G-20; bought the new motor, got the door panel off, and was ready to get busy.... the mechanic called me about something with my other rig and in passing I told him I was getting ready to do this.... HE TOLD ME NOT TO ATTEMPT THIS... I would end up in the hospital due to a spring counterbalance that will cause injury.... Told me to bring it by next week and it will only take him about 2hours... but couldn't give me a price..... (last time my bill ended up being $800+ when he said this!!) Now, my question is.... is it really this hard, or he just looking to make some more $$ off me.... I am a fairly intelligent woman who can put in a starter, alternator, rewire radios and switches... Is he blowing smoke or should I just give up???? If the motor so complicated, can I just put in manual window roll-ups??? HELP!!! Dh isn't mechanical at all, so his answer is, let the mechanic do it... but I can't afford ANY MORE going to him if I can do this!!!
