Kia and Hyundai have an issue with the GEAR inside the Window Regulator. They tend to strip out and the window will not move. IF the regulator is broken you will need to replace the entire window regulator.
The regulator is the entire inside panel, including the cables and cross brackets. It does not include the window motor, which has not been a problem. The motors are reliable and seldom fail.
The most common problem is the Optima Window Gear replacement. Although we have also done quite a few Kia Sportage and Hyundai Tucson.(727) 410 9995

Changing the gear is complicated. It takes some time and quite a bit of physical strength. If you think you can do this we sell the gears on our web site www.upanddownmainstreet.com and will provide the video instructions.
