I need a new electric window regulator with motor for the drivers door on a 1978 SE6A. The Rimmer Bros website shows the regulator for the Rover SD1 RH door [part BLP1068] is twice the price of the LH door [BLP1069]. Is there anywhere else I can get the RH one at more reasonable price?
Cheers, Adam

you may get a second hand one, the usual scimitars dealers have them but they are more expensive than rimmers....

Thanks Geraint, I'll probably bite the bullet as I want a new one really.
Cheers, Adam

Buy the left one and just use the motor which is probably all you need anyway

Great idea peter... Does anyone know if the motor is easy to separate? I can't do welding!

not welded originally they could be bolted or rivited on, fairly simple to replace but I think you will find the motors may be handed, the new spare I have on the self is definitely for one side. the rear motors are the same and can be used.

The motors are Handed, and riveted on.
This subject on Leccy windows has been widely covered in the past.
I have a few Very Good units but with dead motors. :cry:

Also found my NOS Manual winder units, rocking horse poo :wink:

can see it would be to much of a task to adapt a modern motor and lift gear to work

The Scim system works in a massively different way to most modern systems using cables and pulleys.

I've no idea how the 6 electric windows work, but my '81 911 SC has electric windows that have a scissors-sort of X system of lifters, and a motor gear/quadrant arrangement, I think.
If this is a possible route I could take some pictures if I take a door card out. Porsche parts for older models are generally available (so they claim!)
Have a look here:

Fingers crossed this might help.

Just for interest the cables are "wire rope" in dealer parlance. When I did my Renault Espace the rope was (from memory) around 2 to 3mm and wound on and off a drum with furrows in its surface. A man just outside Exeter who deals with every size of "wire rope" from multi ton crane stuff to mm size made me up one and a spare with correct swaged ends for £15.........Dealers only sell complete system for £60+++!!
Espace gone but still have the spare winder wire rope (and a new steering rack) :cry:
