The window regulators on my 1996 Acura 3.5 Rl are broken on the left and right rear windows. Before the regulators broke, the window would come up slowly and stop almost to the top. After a little while, I had to pull the window up the rest of the way.

problem #5

Nar 1/15/2003. The left rear and right rear window regulator failed. The consumer stated he had used the window no more than 60 to 75 times since owning the vehicle and a window regulator should not fail in such a short period of time. The dealer did replace the right rear window regulator under warranty, which had since expired. The dealer was not willing to take any responsibility, even though they admitted the regulators were prone to failure.
