2000 Olds Alero

Any advice on how to repair the cable components of the power window system ? The white clips broke at first, now for some reason the cable has slipped off the wheels. I can get 3 of 4 on but the last wheel seems impossible. Are there any easy or logical ways to relieve the tension on the cable pulley system? This thing is killing me!

You will need a new window regulator to repair the vehicle properly.It would appear that you already know how to get at it.

the regulator is the cable and pulleys that allow the window to go up and down it is the part that is broken that you are attempting to put back together.

The regulators are basically not serviceable. Once the cable jumps off, it will never stay on again. It's a common repair, you have to change the entire regulator.

not sure on your model they are usually riveted in and the heads of the rivets must be drilled off to get the regulator out if this is the case I would suggest a large pop rivet gun if you decide to change it yourself, also the window must be supported while changing out the regulator to prevent it from falling or possibly breaking you can use duct tape to support the window by taping both sides of the window and going over the top of the door use atleast a couple of pieces or if room allows you to use a block inside the door to support the window from falling.
it can take awhile but usually not that difficult to change if you take your time.
