How to choose your Window Lifter

Choosing the correct window lifter for your car is easier than you might believe, you just have to put a little bit of attention; there is no a single model, but different depending on the configuration and capabilities. We will discover how to identify it and, therefore, buy the right one.

Left or Right Side?

First of all, you have to identify the correct side of the mirror. To do this, imagine that you are sitting in the driver's seat of your car (LEFT SIDE in a LHD - left hand drive car, RIGHT SIDE in a RHD - right hand drive). Done? Well, that is the driver's side and so, the opposite side is the the passenger side (RIGHT SIDE in a LHD - left hand drive car, LEFT SIDE in a RHD - right hand drive).

Which is the Front and Rear side in my car?

It may seem trivial, but do not confuse the front and rear. Obviously, Front means the part of the car that consists of the steering wheel, dashboard and related driver and passenger seats. The doors are then called front doors. Consequently, the Rear of the car is the one behind the front.

I need only the Mechanism or the Complete window lifter?

The first thing to do is to figure out if you need the full window lifter (so, mechanism + motor) or only one among motor or mechanism (so you can reuse the other one).

If you need only the mechanism then you need to look for our related listing where, in the title and description, appears the text: mechanism. If you want only the motor of the window lifter then you need to look for our related listing where, in the title and description, appears the text: motor. Finally, if you need the complete window lifter, then you need to look for our related listing where, in the title and description, appears the text: window lifter without the terms mechanism, motor. Let's see now the configuration.

It's Manually or Electrically adjustable?

To find out if your window lifter is manual or electric you have to check if the glass in your door goes up and down manually (by turning the handle) or electrically (with a push of a switch). Congratulations, you have just found out that, in the first case, you will need a MANUAL windows, while in the second an ELECTRIC one.

3 or 5 doors?

Sometimes the windows lifters differ for the same car's model/year based on the number of doors. Then, check how many doors your car have and keep this informations in your mind.

Comfort or not Comfort?

Have no fear, we'll explain right away what means the term comfort. If your door's glass is manually adjustable, you can skip this part. In fact, only if the window lifter is electric and also the glass raises or lowers AUTOMATICALLY after a click or combination of clicks (also stops automatically if it encounters an obstacle), then you have just found to have a windows lifter with comfort function and Anti-Pinch function.

If not, then your window lifter is simply electric, and not Comfort.

Please Note: windows lifters with comfort features have a connector with a typical geometrically form. Make sure your new window lifter will have the same connector of your old one.
