Is it just the motor? I have my old one when I replaced my regulator (gear tooth on the arm was broken, motor was fine). Willing to part with it if ya want it.

Also, is the chirp coming from the rear of your engine bay? Might be time to replace your camshaft synchro

That I just pulled codes 629 and 566 and have no idea how to fix them without upgrading to a manual. oh, and the back of the cab gets in the way of the seat going back far enough.
