Re: EF Window problem
Bummer, these things are not meant to be repaired, so you normally have to get a new one. At around $200 for a new assembly, not a good thing!
I had a similar thing happen to the front drivers window on the ED - the end of the cable pulled through the crappy plastic of the assembly. I fixed it by making up a steel holder for the end of the cable, which sort of formed a collar around the cable so the end of it would not pull out. I bent it out of sheet steel, and bolted the finished holder to the steel part of the housing. It was quite hard to re thread the cable over the top and bottom guides due to the spring tension from memory. Very hard to explain exactly what I did, as it was a bit trial and error from memory, but it can be done .
