I don't know about other makes, but on most GM vehicles the weight differences would be almost nothing anymore. Power window regulators(inc motor) are as light or lighter than their manual counter part. The mechanisms in the manual window regulators are often still made with 1/8" or thicker steel. I think it's because they are going to see higher input torque at times, when they can build the regulator for the power window, to handle a specific input. Popeye has to make sure his manual window is all the way up, and will get pissed if the regulator failed on him
