Hey all, my 4200 drivers side window regulator has give up the ghost making a really unhealthy noise at fully open. It then wouldn’t shut and made an even unhealthier noise At the same time. Door card off and window put back up. It still does the partial opening on getting in and out of the car. I’ve seen some stuff on an Alfa 916 regulator. My question is this, does the 916 fit without modification? If not then could someone please recommend a fix etc. Thanks in anticipation, neil

The gear quadrant is in the wrong alignment, the fix is to remove it and have it welded in the right position (luckily you have a regulator you can use to confirm the position).

Other than that, depending on what has actually broken (take your pick from detached quadrant, missing teeth, broken pin) you can transfer the bits across. @Spartacus has lost most of his hair trying this (and pretty much every other) route.
