I found a regulator for a 1984-88 chevy sprint
fit it in my 1989 Suzuki swift GTI
the only mod is to notch the original MK1 window slider bar

So does that mean all 2dr 89-94 regulators will also work on mk1s?!

YES yes it does.!
I can't see any problems with using a (89-94) Geo/Swift 2dr regulator on a MK1 (84-88) 2dr Sprint/Forsa
just make sure you grab the window slider bar
( the piece the bottom of the window bolts to)
and drill one of the holes inside the original hole 1/8" in
.

Totally excellent thread, thank you very much. I have three sedans with hooped driver's window regulators that need to be fixed, and the idea of fixing them and having to screw around inside the door seemed like such a bummer I was thinking I'd pop the hinge pins out of the doors and bring the complete doors over to a Suzuki mechanic I know and pay him to fix them but now that I've seen your pictures of the regulators lying there by themselves the whole job seems really simple now and I'm looking forward to doing it myself.
I also like that the pictures show that regulators from different years and models and marks are so similar that I could probably do some mixing and matching and modifying of parts off regulators from wrecks to fix my own if need be.

those screws that hold the slide bar on can be alittle tight
Just use a #2 phillip screw driver #1 Is a standard size( smaller)
if you can't get it to turn at first hit it with a hammer to unjam it
