The motor, which gives the window the power to move up and down, and the regulator, which helps to keep the window in place. ,Regulator assemblies are usually one of two systems, a cable system - which puts less stress on the motor, but is more likely to break itself, and a scissor style assembly - which is very sturdy in itself, but may wear out your motor faster.
