Year and Trim: 2003 Bonneville SSEi
My 2003 SSEi has lunched the front driver's window regulator. The original regulator lasted for 13-years. The Dorman I replaced it with lasted only four years. What failed with the Dorman was the 1/4 arc nylon guide wheel at the bottom of the regulator. The frikin' thing basically exploded. Can anyone recommend a more durable, longer lasting replacement than the Dorman? I have the original regulator's motor, and the Dorman motor, both of which work great, so I can go with a motorless replacement unit.

If it were me, I would contact Andrew (harofreak00) at Bonnevilles Unlimited and procure an OEM regulator from him.

I ordered an AC Delco motor from Rock Auto and it's been working great for over a year now.

If you're looking for lowest cost though, I second the above comment about asking Andrew for a used OEM.

I had to replace both back actuators back in the spring of 2016 (I believe). The ones I got were from different places. The one was bought from an NTB, and the other was bought online. I don't remember where. They both worked great and didn't fail while I still had the car - around 3-4 years.

First, I'd see what Andrew has. If you don't care for used parts, then I'd try to get the closest to OEM as possible.
