I've witness it happen on 9000s, repeatedly, but never a 900. I've owned 7 of them, too. Two w/ approx 80k, one w/ approx 100k, two with 130k, one with 190k, and one with 50k. None of them had the issue, but the three 9000s I've owned have.

Just unscrew to door lock cap, remove the screw in the black handle trim piece, pull off the handle trim piece, slide down the upholstered trim panel in the door, and remove the four screws at top and the two at bottom. Lift the panel away. The motor is at the bottom of the door. Reinstallation is opposite of removal, and takes maybe ten minutes for the whole thing. > >I also don't like having to wait the 2 weeks to have the motor shipped > >in from Sweden - you can't put a right in a left either? what about > >older year window motors? are they interchangeable?
