Sounds like the window regulator inside the door has failed. If you feel confident enough remove the door pad and take a look. Alternatively get your local mechanic to take a look for you it is not a major job.

Why wont my rear power window go up ?

The mechanism that is attached to the glass is broken or disconnected. It is about $40.00 to $50.00 from online dealers.

Window made a "pop" sound then dropped into door.

Best go to a Glass Repair shop. Sounds like window guides or a part called a "regulator" was damaged by probing inside the door. A broken glass window will be more expensive than paying an experienced installer to fix the bad parts.

Left passenger rear side window is stuck in the down position; motor seems to work but cannot bring window to the up position to fully close. what is the cause and solution?

If the motor works then the window should move up, this sounds like the regulator may have broken, try to lift the glass by hand and see if it moves, if you are able to move the glass up then the regulator is bad but if the glass wont move then it would have to be the motor or the switches. you can try banging on the inside of the door while holding the switch in the up postion, this sometimes helps when a motor is going bad, good day.

Drivers side window falls and wont stay up on track

It sounds like the window elevator is damaged, probably the fastener that holds the window glass to the elevator rail is broken, loose or just came off.

Take the door panel off and take a closer look. If the fastener came off the glass, JB Weld would fix it.

I hope this will help you, good luck

1998 Grand Prix SE right rear passenger window falls

The window regulator that holds the glass that the motor moves up and down is probably broke. There are some plastic parts that get brittle and break. I'd say you need a regulator especially if you can hear the motor operating.

2003 grand am-rear window lowers but wont raise-motor working both directions-can raise window by hand-dont know about cable operated-diagrams?

Sounds like the two tabs that connect the window glass to the motor hardware may be broken off. This happened to me before. It will let the window go down because gravity and the weight of the window let it fall but when you try to close the window it is only getting pushed up with either the front or back tab on the window jamming it in the tracks and not letting it go up.

Drivers side window won't go up or down

Have you checked the window regulator. (electric window motor). I seems a comon problem for the plastic to break at the bottom where the wire which pulls the glass up and down. The motor will still sound (clunk) if you use the window switch but will not lift the window.

Remove the trim off the door.
Undo the bolts holding the glass into the plastic at the bottom of the window and carefully remove the glass.
Unbolt and remove the sliding piece that holds the glass.
You should find the broken plastic at the bottom.

Replace and reinstall. Aftermarket parts are available at a fraction of the cost of buying new nissan parts. Second hand parts are available but costly.

Rear window defroster

you need to make sure the wires are on the glass on each side and there is no broken wires in the glass there is a repair kit at a auto store to fix if you have a volt meter test it and that way you can find the problem look for breaks in the wire in the glass and do not for get the wires on each side of the glass.

2001 Saab 95 se driver/passenger windows.

A car I owned the left rear window did that. I could pull it up by taking a hold of it while another person held the switch. They told me the problem was the track was made out of plastic and it had broken. They had to replace the track. Yes it was expensive to repair but is ok now.
