Default Do 2000 Acura TLs have a window regulator?

I have a 1995 Nissan Maxima. A former co-worker of mine has a 2000
Acura TL. On the same day, in the same parking lot (but on opposite
sides of the lot), both of our rear, driver-side windows fell down and
wouldn't stay up. This happened to me once before with the passengert-
side rear window and through a Nissan news group I found out it was
most likely the window regulator. Both times I've been able to by a
new regulator for about $50, remove the door panel and replaced the
broken regulator with the new one. I thought my friend could do the
same with his TL, but I have yet to find any place online that sells a
window regulator for a 2000 Acura TL. Do they have such a thing? Or do
the power windows go up and down by some other method?

The Maxima's regulator is just a pulley system driven by a motor that
pushes and pulls the window up and down. I've seen window motors for
the 2000 TL and they are also about $50. Do the motor and regulator
come as one part? (That would be impressive because a Nissan motor and
regulator bought together sell for about $150 at the dealer.)

Basically, has anybody had a window on a 2000 TL fall down and fixed
it? If so, how?

Thanks,

Jason

Whoo. Let's unbreak that URL, shall we?

Entering the search term "regulator" gives me a listing (no pics)
for all 4 regulators, at about $120 each.

Problem is, this sort of problem is often caused by damaged
window run channels, not the regulator. I'd pull the door panels off
first and investigate.
