Window Regulator, Aftermarket, Electric, MX5 Mk1

Quality aftermarket replacement electric window regulator assembly.

Ideal if you don't feel confident replacing the cables (here)

Fits all Mk1 models, 1989>1998 with electric windows.

Please note: If you have aftermarket central locking fitted you may have to relocate the central locking solenoid as the new window motor sits in the same place as this is normally mounted.

This is a great aftermarket part, straight swap for the OEM part, no additional parts required apart from wiring up the OEM connector. No need to deal with changing the cables. Fitted in less that an hour. Highly recommended.

The fitting instructions for this product are very minimal. What the website doesn't tell you is that there is no plug with this product, you get 2 loose wires. You need to cut off the OEM plug and heat shrink the 2 new loose wires to the 2 wires that is left over when you cut the plug off. Would of loved to know that before I bought this product as I didn't want to be cutting off OEM bits to make this work.

Like several other reviewers I too have had trouble with this aftermarket product. I replaced my drivers one some time ago, and although I wasn't particularly pleased with the general sloppiness, it did a reasonable job and was easy to fit, despite the poor instructions. It is still working fine. When my passenger one went I was a bit unsure but went for this option again. Unfortunately the motor seized just after the warranty ran out. I had tried to fix it myself, and as I just wrecked it in the process I just bit the bullet and bought another one as I had thrown out all the original stuff. I see from mx5Parts comments relating to other reviews I perhaps should have contacted them anyway. Interestingly my replacement, which is still in warranty, stopped functioning in the very cold weather but is now working again....I too wish I'd stuck with the original system. Everything else I have ever bought from MX5parts has been of very high quality and their service is outstanding, so I am disappointed here.

The instructions were terrible, there is no mention of the fact that you need to drill two new holes because the brackets supplied are not long enough to reach the original holes and that you need to purchase new bolts.Despite that, the product works better than the original unit. I spend the longest time resetting thedoor glass.The service from MX5 Parts is second to none, but I would recommend reading the reviews in future before purchasing any after market items.

What seemed to be the rescue to the bad original window system, turned out to be even worse. After some time the thing stopped working, and that was just after the warranty went out. So here I am, with another not functioning window.I am an mechatronic engineer myself, and can conclude that the original patent is a better solution. If you regurarly grease the thing, that is.Stay away.Editors Note: Sorry to hear you had problems with this item. We did reply to your email offering you the opportunity to return the item even though it was out of warrenty. If you had have contacted us when the item actually stopped working it would have still been covered under the manufacturers warrenty and we could have sent you a new one or an alternative straight away. If any product you purchase from us is considered to be faulty, please contact us immediatly and we will always do what ever we can to help. A member of our customer services team will be in touch soon to see if there is anything we can do.

I bought a matching set of these last March (2009) (im writing this in May 2010) and as per usual the service from MX5 parts was excellent. This website is an excellent tool and appreciate the options that MX5 parts bring.This product though is a rare disappointment, 6 months after buying them the passenger side regulator seized and was replaced free of charge. The driver side has since stopped working and im beginning to become frustrated. I have revisited the mechanism and nothing is binding etc so i can only presume the motor has once again seized. I know the Mazda door regulators well and i hoped these would be a simpler option.Editors Note: Sorry to hear you have experienced problem with this product. A member of our customer services team will be in touch soon to sort it out.

Bought the window regulator in December for Christmas but the weather has been so bad its taken till now (March) to fit.First of all id like to thank MX5 parts for the best service around.After reading the different reviews i was a bit concerned as to how this instalment was going to pan out? but it went without a hitch!Fitted to a 1994 Eunos, i did not need any extra bolts or any drilling required? Yes you need to snip off the old wire connection and join two wires to the new wires.Works ok! Goes up and down much smoother than my last one.

Bought this to replace the standard system because one cable break.There was the same problem with missing screws has said in other user reviews.The other problem is that the window dont go full down. When going up the glass go way up than it should.Hope MX5 parts can supply another option for the window regulators.This is not the usual quality I am used to from MX5 parts and the low score reflects the quality of the product rather than the service which at mx5parts end was top class as usual.The only thing i cant give 1 rating its because this unit does the job and works a bit faster than stock units. But still i am very disappointed.

We understand that its really important for you to receive your goods in a timely fashion and for a competitive price. To ensure that we can deliver this we have developed a strategic partnership with both the Royal Mail and our courier partner, Think Worldwide.

At the present time, we only offer one delivery option ‘our carrier’. We will dispatch your goods with the most suitable carrier, for main land UK deliveries this is normally Royal Mail 1st class for packages weighing under 2kg and Think Worldwide for those that are over.

Our delivery charges are based on the weight of the consignment and the destination address. For UK mainland deliveries they start at £2.95 for a package weighing under 200g and rise to a MAXIMUM of £9.95 for a package weighing 2kg or over (EXCEPT very large bulky items that have an additional shipping surcharge added). The exact delivery cost will be clearly displayed at checkout.

Delivery times are estimated at 1-3 working days by Royal Mail, and 1-2 working days by Think Worldwide for mainland UK addresses. If you order before 3pm, Monday to Friday, we will dispatch the same day. If you order after 3pm, we will try to dispatch the same day, but if we cant it will be the next working day. Items ordered after 3pm Friday or over a weekend will be dispatched Monday. Items dispatched on Friday are for delivery the following week. Items ordered over a Bank Holiday will be dispatched the next working day. MX5parts is constantly updated to keep pace with changes in our stock but demand is high and we occasionally run out of popular items. If we have run out of stock and can’t dispatch your order the next working day, we’ll email or phone you with a revised dispatch date. You can then either accept the revised dispatch date or cancel the order, as you wish. Please note, shipping times are an estimate, and can not be guaranteed.

If you want it left, you need to give us your express instructions in the ‘additional information’ box at the end of the checkout process. It would be helpful if you could also indicate exactly where the package should be left.

Our Guarantee - MX5 Parts

We guarantee that you’ll be satisfied with mx5parts!

We guarantee “always fair prices”

MX5parts maintains an everyday savings pricing policy. We watch other retailers closely and maintain competitive pricing. The internet being the beast it is means that any Tom, Dick or Henrietta can set up a website in their back room and charge bargain basement/off the back of a lorry (guv) prices. Often they will have no stock, no returns policy, questionable security, no guarantees and of course poor customer service. MX5parts strives to be open and honest, so we will never inflate our prices to set up an artificial ‘sale’ (a common – and illegal – retail practice).

It is inevitable in an open market like the internet that there will be some individuals selling some items cheaper than we do, and some selling them for more than we do, just as in the high street. We take great pride in offering a fast, efficient, friendly and secure shopping experience, with great products at fair prices. We encourage our customers to shop around, but are very pleased to welcome them back again and again.

We guarantee to despatch your order when we say we will

If you order before 3pm, Monday to Friday and we have your items in stock , we’ll despatch the same day . If you order after 3pm, we’ll still try to despatch that day but, if we can’t, we’ll despatch the following day. Items ordered after 3pm Friday or over a weekend will be despatched Monday. Items despatched on Friday are for delivery the following week. Items ordered over a Bank Holiday will be despatched the next working day. MX5parts is constantly updated to keep pace with changes in our stock but demand is high and we occasionally run out of popular items. If we have run out of stock and can’t despatch your order the next working day, we’ll email or phone you with a revised despatch date. You can then either accept the revised dispatch date or cancel the order, as you wish. Please note that during special offer periods, dispatch of your order may be delayed slightly due to high a volume of orders.

We guarantee to replace any goods which aren’t suitable

We guarantee to accept back any goods that you do not want, are not suitable, have changed your mind about, infact, for ANY reason, provided the goods reach us within 30 days of dispatch from us, in their original condition and packaging. Please tell us why you are returning the items, just for our records. The original purchase price of the goods will be refunded on to the card that was used for their purchase. Sorry, but we can not refund the carriage costs.

We guarantee full warranty support on all items

Just contact us if you have a warranty problem. All goods supplied by mx5parts are from official sources and are covered by the normal manufacturers warranty.

We guarantee that we will only charge your credit/switch card when your goods are dispatched

This is your right under UK law and, if we do anything else, it’s illegal!

(Please note: This doesn’t apply however if you have chosen to pay via PayPal. Due to the way PayPal works, you are effectively sending the money to us rather than us asking for it so in this instance we will have received payment at the time the order was placed and not when it is ready for dispatch).

We guarantee that we won’t pass your email details on to anyone else

Absolutely not. All your details are treated as strictly confidential. We’re internet users, too, and we know how annoying unsolicited email can be. We wouldn’t risk annoying you by being the cause of it.
