My driver's side window will now roll up how do I fix it?

I tried to crush a spider yesterday with my driver's side window and the handle broke. It didn't break off. It just broke. Then the window slid down into the door panel. What happened? How do I fix it, and How do I get my window back up?

Please Help

Most likely the window regulator has broken inside the door and will need to be replaced as well as the regulator handle. To remove them you will need a basic metric socket set, screwdrivers, and a rag or shop towel. start by moving the rag back and forth behind the window crank in order to remove the retaining clip. then once removed pull the crank from the splines of the window regulator.now undo the screw in the door handle press forward on the handle to release it from the door then undo the lock rod clip and remove the handle. there should be two large phillips head screws below the arm rest remove these. gently slide a flat bladed screwdriver under the bottom edge of the door panel. prying up to remove the retaining clips used to fasten the panel to the door. if you break the clips you can get replacements at most auto parts stores in their help section. Next lift the door panel up while lifting the bottom edge away from the door to remove the door panel. once inside the door you will need to lift the window up to gain access to the two 10 mm bolts attaching the regulator to the glass. undo the regulator retaining bracket and retaining bolts from the door. remove the regulator an assistant can be helpful to hold the glass up while you remove the regulator. installation is the reverse of removal

I have a 2000 Dodge Intrepid R/T and the drivers side door handle quit working from the inside. I can still roll down the window and unlock the door that way. Is there a way to fix it?


Pull the door panel off. There is a clip that holds the bar to the handle on the inside. The clip often breaks. Worst case you can grab the handle from a salvage yard for about 20 bucks.

2005 volvo s60 inside door latch broke


That is not true.
The handle fell off on the inside. You can remove all the screws, remove window and lock controls. Then take a large flat-tipped screwdriver gently pry off door panel. Pull up and off when loose. You will now have access to inside off door and put the rod back in the handle hole. If the plastic holder piece is broke you will need another one. Cheap.

My driver's side window will now roll up how do I fix it?


you'll need to remove screws that are by the door handle, arm rest, under door and side of door and then gently pull back on the panel as there will also be retaining clips attached and you don't want to break them. Then pull back the weather seal (can't reuse it, but it's not that important) and you will be able to access everything.Sounds like the linkages, or the gears of the regulator are done

How to replace '96 Ford Explorer driver side exterior door handle


You will need to remove the door panel to gain access to the handle. Roll the window up or down as needed to get to the nuts that attach the handle to the door. You will also need to remove a rod the goes to the door lock. You will see the rod after the door panel is removed. Good luck.
