Window regulators were NOT CHEAP or really available back around 20 years ago when they went out the first time. They were about $250 - $280 each and only the ones from Acura that actually worked.

Oof. Didn't figure that. Rear right went out in 2011 on mine. By then there were decent aftermarket replacements available.

I tried the aftermarket ones first. Myself and an Acura dealership employee and forum member here talked about that particular vendor as he was looking at his own KA9 as well as those of their customers. We were surprised at just how far off they were to actually fit and work. I returned that non fitting mess to them. What to me is CRAZY is that the KA7 & KA8 Legends have GEAR window regulators and they went to the cable drive ones apparently to save money. My 1992 Nissan Maxima had cable regulators similar to the KA9 ones. They went out for the rear doors as well as I recall (although mine was assisted by the joker who ran into the back of my parked Maxima) but they were a FRACTION of the cost compared to the RLs.
