Optima, Sportage, Tucson Window Gear Replacement. DIY and SAVE or Call us Now.

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.

You can buy these Gears for the Optima, Sportage, & Tucson Window Gear replacement HERE. Superquick shipping USPS.


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.

Inside Door Handle Broken, Victim Drowns

Police released information that a broken inside door handle on her Chevy Aveo may have contributed to the death of Apryl Foster in Tampa Bay recently. My personal opinion is that people usually can not get out of their car during a crisis as they are unconscious, not due to mechanical failure inside the door. Still better to repair your driver window or inside handle before a tragic event occurs. Call Power Up Auto for Power Window Repair and Door Lock Repair.

Tracy at the Disney Marathon

Boston Marathon Dana Farber, If you want to help out a fundraiser (and maybe win a few $$$’s yourself) please consider buying a square in Tracy Simons Saperstein final 4 pool. Tracy is running the Boston Marathon (incredible as it sounds) and is doing so on behalf of Dana Farber. Her original goal was $4,000 and I did not think there was any way she would reach that. I stand corrected. Tracys’ NEW goal is $26,200 and I am confident she will succeed. If you can make a small donation it is appreciated. If you want to buy a final 4 square for $30 (2% chance of winning big bucks) equally appreciated. Contact Tracy directly for the final 4 squares. Quick link for any donation below. Tracy what you have done is amazing. I am so proud to tell everyone you are my sister. Boston Marathon Dana Farber



And you thought YOUR repair was expensive…

And you thought YOUR power window repair was expensive…
Customer called with a 2006 Bentley Arnage with both rear windows not working. The part, a regulator/motor assembly did not look that different from any other car and I figured most it could be is $400-$500. NOPE. $1860 EACH DOOR (plus labor). I guess if you buy a $180k car Bentley can charge that for the parts.
