    I promised myself I wouldn't talk about how much it cost!!! If you can weld, you can do it for probably less than 50 bucks.

    It's an electric window motor. By the way, they're designed to break. I found a website with a fix in case it ever needs it. The rollers are made of nylon for all those people who hold the button down after the window is up. The rollers are replaced with 3/8 aluminum rod instead of the nylon rollers. This thing has really helped me when the grass is wet.
