The only part that can be a bit problematic is the actual replacing of the motor on the window regulator.

Here's what you are looking at. Remove the door card, it will have a couple of screws in the door handle/armrest and one by the handle to open the door. Using a sturdy putty knife you will be able to pop the door card loose. You will need to unplug the switches for the windows and the locks and then the door card should be free. You will then need to remove the entire regulator assembly from the window. Use masking tape to hold the window up so it does not come crashing down when you remove the regulator. Unbolt the regulator from the window itself. Next you will need to remove the regulator from the door. Some are bolted to the door some are riveted. Riveted ones require you to drill or grind the rivet heads off. Once you have the regulator out of the door, you will need to clamp it in the vise. The rivets that hold the motor to the regulator will need to be drilled. This is the part where you will find out the reason it needs to be clamped in a bench vise. If it is not it will try to retract and you will not be able to install the motor. The new motor will bolt back on to the regulator. Some motor kits come with bolts to bolt the regulator back into the door, some come with pop rivets, some come with nothing. If the kit has rivets or nothing, you will need to track down the rivets at a dealership, and find the rather large pop rivet gun to handle size rivets being used. While at the dealership I would recommend getting the new push clips that hold the door card on as it will make the finished product much nicer. It is not a bad project. Just make sure the wires that run through the rubber tube between the door post and door are not broken. That is also a common problem. If you pull the rubber tube one way or the other, it will be obvious if the wires are broke as the insulation will be busted as well. If you feel it is too much to take on, it should only be 1.5 hours of labor to get a shop to do it for you.

Very good info.

One other thing to just check. The conduit that goes in the jam by the hinge. Sometimes a wire can break in there. Seen that before is all.

What DS said! grin.gif

Before you pull the panel off I would check the switch. The switch works by alternating the paths that power and ground use. To simplify think of it this way. The red wire is hot all the time (the colors I am using are hypothetical) the black wire is ground all the time. The orange and blue are two wire s that supply power and ground to the motor. When you push the switch up power comes from the red wire goes through the switch which directs it to the orange wire, the orange wire carries the power to the motor. At the same time the switch is grounding the blue wire which completes the circuit. When you push the switch down it does just the opposite. It sends power through the blue wire and turns the orange wire into the ground wire.

I needed to explain that so this makes sense. One wire on the back of the switch should have power all the time. One wire will be grounded all the time. If you hold the switch up one and only one additional wire should power up. the same for pushing down. The switch may be bad If more than one wire powers up while pushing the switch in either position. Essentially the switch is not providing a ground for which ever position causes the two wires to power up.

One thing I like to do before I remove the motor is tap on it while pushing the up or down button. If it starts working then I know I am on the right track!

      Green has some nice gills. Glad to hear they are biting

      I’m wishing you luck my friend. It’s hard to get away and it can be very deflating when the weather doesn’t cooperate.

      Hit Green for a couple hours this afternoon, almost zero traffic and the sunnies were active. It’s nice to see this lake is back!

      still frozen in?

      Was out for a while on the Partridge River this afternoon, didn't have any minnows, managed one 13" crappie on Gulp waxes.  But, the old Strikemaster almost bottomed out-close to 30" of ice.

      I don't know what your Helix 7 requires in the manual, but a quick look would figure out if that 3amp is too small. Definitely wire your sonar to the motor battery using the correct gauge wire and fuse. If you connect it to another battery, it should be a stand-alone. Connecting to the trolling motor battery will generate interference.

      I've done cheeks quite a few times and they are always good. They take only a few seconds to carve out. I like to get the most out of the things I kill to eat, so I'm not afraid to pull them out of smaller ones. I'm glad to see that so many people picked up a new tip. That's the point of congregating on these forums. I wonder how many non-registered folks will read this and learn something new.

      I've been doing them for many years.  Like Cliff, a friend who was a guide on LOW brought some out prior to the main course-been doing it since.

      With the snow cover completely gone and lots of standing water, 60s in the forecast, with plenty of sunny days next week, and a good chance of rain mid-week; this may be my last weekend on the ice, South of Hwy 210 anyway . Fish have really been on the chew

      hey guys..i installed the helix 7. took it out the other day. it keeps  randomly shutting down, with the motor off it will stay on no problem. Heres where i think i f'd up. i used the same 3 amp fuse harness from the old sonar that came with the boat, the old hb depth only kind. its wired right to the ignition wire. i used the correct gauge wire where i needed it. im guessing its not getting enough juice? also if i wired it direct to a separate battery, how do i go about hooking up and on board charger? or would i be ok just wiring direct to the battery that runs the motor? thanks for any advice. those musky lures look so bad ass! nice work !!
