Project 3323: New Window Motor and Removing the Bumpers

So, after waiting a long while to install it, I finally get around to putting in that new Window Motor for my 2000 Nissan Pathfinder. Project 3323 finally has two functioning front windows! I also remove the bumpers because of accident damage. I’ll get to that in a moment.

Wait, What Accident?

Yeah, in a moment of watching a motorcyclist lane split me and the HOV lane, I ran into the back of a car. The way he was splitting had me worried and I wanted to make sure I didn’t run the rider over. Not my proudest moment and it was the same day the first article on the project came out to boot. Insurance took care of the car I hit, Project 3323 is another story. However, I am using it as an excuse to do some work to improve the looks and function of the Pathfinder’s front end.

The Lead Up

I’ve known about the issue for a long time. Too long. The window wasn’t working when I bought Project 3323 and I had diagnosed it months ago, too.

I’ve had the replacement since the day I knew about it, I just haven’t had the time to stop and install it until now. It was a bear because the old Pathfinder window motor was locked solid. I couldn’t get the window down without some force.
