"Heat kills car batteries," according to John Banta, a Consumer Reports project leader and part of the team that tests batteries for the magazine. "Many times in cold climates, your battery fails to start your car on a below-freezing day. The reason this happens is that the heat of the past summers has weakened your battery. When you use it in the cold, the starter requires more electrical current to turn over the cold engine with its thickened oil." Leaving your car parked or stored for long periods of time can also lead to a dead battery that you will need to recharge before heading out for a drive.
Replacing Your Window Motor or Regulator: Remove the door panel. This task will vary from car to car, but typically you will have to remove some screws around the middle of the panel (such as inside the door pull) and then use a prying tool around the outside to pop out the clips on the perimeter. Sometimes you may have to remove things such as weather-stripping or door moldings as well.
