This is the other way around to the usual upgrade, but can a mechanical window regulator be fitted in the place of the electric one? - the reason i ask is that i work where carpark security access is required by swipe card, 4 separate gates in, 4 separate gates to go home - 8 full window winds a day has killed 2 x electric winder motors in 5 years and to be honest i have no problem and would rather use a mechanical winder handle. The door trim panel that although has the electric switch, is in exact the same position as the mechanical winder position would go so i may even get away without having to change the trim as long as the regulator mounting holes are in the same place as the electrical one? - many thanks in advance for any replies which would be greatly appreciated.

I reckon you might need to change the panel but never heard of anyone doing this.
I would get a second hand motor fit it bit pay more attention to keeping the channels well lubricated. Maybe as often as once a month. Maybe even leaving the window down more if possible between gates. Just a thought
