A response for an unnamed friend. Remember this before you start working on automobile window regulators/lifting mechanisms. Stored energy in a wound-up spring has no conscience.
Rich, one of the dumber things I did years ago was to repair the switch in our 72 Town and Country. The door switch was not working. had the door cover removed and was working inside the inner frame without being able to see what was going on. Repair by Braille. As you can guess the spring slipped of the motor end and very nicely nearly took of the middle finger at the first joint. Pulled the hide down to the next joint and required 19 stitches to bring every thing back to normal. I decided that any further switch repair would be done by an expert. Haven't needed this yet but the reminder is very clear in my mind.
Thanks for sharing, friend!
