Installing an Electric Life Power Window Kit
In a 1996 Volkswagen Golf
In the photo above, we can see how close our Electric Life regulator is to the factory regulator. The basic shape and configuration is very similar to the factory configuration, making this kit extremely simple to install.
The power assembly is inserted into the door and bolted up to the same 3 holes that the manual unit was mounted to (2 middle photos below). Our window is lowered into the glass clamps and the clamps are tightened.
It is important to note that the window should be clamped to the glass while it is close to the top of the door and the clamps are accessible through the access holes shown on the previous page. This is the factory's way to properly align the window.
If the clamps on the electric regulator are not accessible through the access holes, power must be applied briefly to the motor to move the mounts. We used the battery from our cordless drill to do this (bottom photo). A pair of wires from the car battery would do the same thing. To move the motor/regulator power must be applied to one of the motor wires and ground to the other. Reversing the power and ground wires will reverse the motors direction of travel.
