    Local car scrap yard. Google, eBay, froogle..…maybe. Craigslist,
  3. Replace the whole regulator. Even if you can find just a cable, good luck putting it in.

    good call. i didn't realize it was all 1 unit till just now thanks.
  5. I think Dorman makes them. Call your local parts store. Only use the dealer as a last resort.

    I got one for my Yukon on ebay. You can also check Rockauto.com or gmpartsdirect.com. Both places have decent prices. The one I got was Dorman.

    The window regulators are a definite weak link on Chevys. I have put in 2 driverside and 1 passenger side so far. The first one I bought through the dealer, the second 2 from NAPA at half the price. Smoking is what killed them, I kept trying to roll down the window when it was frozen to ash my cig. Quit smoking and haven't put one in since. One more benefit.
