Question about 2000 Jaguar S-Type

Rear window on driver's side slides down

Im no mechanic. Got a 2000 Jag S-type and within month of buying, the rear driver's side passenger window started slipping down. Cant put it back up. How to take off the door panel and check it out without destroying it? My husband wants to repair it himself.

    I have the same problem. got the panel off alright but still have no clue what I'm doing in there. The panel comes off relatively easy. its all clips so you can just pull it off. There are two philips screws in the door handle under a rubber mat. and the plastic piece around the door lock/opener is a pull off as well.

I've had this problem and I believe its a common problem with S types. There is a white plastic slider that wraps around a metal strut and moves up and down as the window opens and closes. The problem is that the plastic slider breaks if the car door is slammed when the window is half way down, When this occurs the slider breaks free and the wire that pulls it up and down wraps itself around the motor and jamms everything up. The fix is to replace the window regulator as a complete unit. This fairly straight forward and worth the effort as you most likely will be replacing the other regulators if you keep the car for a while. Buy the regulator either from Jag dealer or OEM part which is approx 1/2 the cost (I found mine on ebay!). Make sure your get the correct unit, left, right, front and rear are different. Take off the door panel, its all clips except you need to unscrew the two scews under the rubber insert in the door pocket first. After you have removed the panel remove the black plastic cover as well. You need to detach the glass window from the regulator, This is done by punching out the brass insert in the middle of the plastic plug that is pushed through a hole in the glass. Be careful, if you hit it too hard you can break the glass, I ended up drilling it out as this was easier. Once you have the plastic plug out the glass is detached and you can remove the regulator. This is just a few screws, the only tricky part is to get the angle right to pull it out the door frame. Installation of the regulator is just the reverse. Good luck.

Rear window slipping down about 1 inch, but still on the track.


The Regulator will fix the problem. The tracks might also need a little adjustment.(loosen bolts move track then retighten) Try holding the window while you are rasing it you might be able to guide it up so that it will close a bit more.
