Can we change a car power window to manual type?

It's a Honda City and the power window internal bracket kept breaking down. Each time changed can only last like 2-3 years.....

Wondering if we can change the electric power window to a manual hand winding up window ?

Those old card manual window will never go broken even 10-20 years.....just need to hand manually wind the window up or down only.....

Anyone got this problem? or changed a power window to a manual window before?

Please share comments on this topic.

One common issue that I know of is thick window tint. Does yours have this?

And replace with original parts.

dont think so.. the whole structure of the door and bracket of windows need to change to match the handle..
except your car model do have an option of manual window then can retrofit it

If there is a factory manual-winder unit of your car (e.g. from a base spec model), then its just a matter of plug and play, while the door card might need to be modded.

However if its a custom job, do note that the mechanical components (gears and all) will have to line up in a manner that all doesn't obstruct the existing door frame, and other components.

By the way, which part of the 'internal bracket' that breaks so often. Is it the mount and glue that holds the glass that came apart?

I see... it seems that the car door may need to be modify to install a manual window from an original power window......

It seems to be a hassle & costly to modify the car door just to install a 'manual' window.....

my story is the power window internal bracket (cross bow) always jammed up....

bracket broken 2 times and 1 time mechanical jam up so... so it is my 4th times liao... sien ahh...

Any other solution....besides forgetting the window and open car door each time...

the bracket i assume is metal right.?
rarely will broken. normally is just bent and fix it by straighten it will do.
how bout the rubber seal for the windows to slide up and down? did it misalligned or broken?

Lots of people buy Mercedes just because they have OEM parts to replace if anything is broken....

seems like turning a power window to a manual hand winding up window is too cumbersome with too many modification to the door....so most probably dropping this idea oready....

may not want to change another OEM part this time.....just open car door only when needed...

I heard proton power window also always breaks easily.....

Wonder why these days cars dun have manual hand winding up windows anymore
or
those fan with fan blades......imagine got aircond and fan blowing inside..... really good ventilation and cooling....

If you are really serious about keeping the car while still willing to do minimal manual labor, follow what the guys at rally do. biggrin.gif

What year is your Honda City? I had one for 8 years and it never failed. I even have double layer tinting on them.

I think the problem is more than just the internal bracket. There is probably already some issue with the whole auto window. For eg, the alignment is off which causes stress to the bracket everytime you wind them. Or the rubber parts has harden and is no longer supporting the structure properly. Find a formen who is good and can properly diagnose the issue.

No point changing to manual if you are not going to keep the car for more than 5 years as the cost is more than you just change the bracket every 2-3 years. Also, it will be hard to sell the car.
