How do you fix 1 side of my driver power seat? The cable snapped on the one side


there are four bolts holding the whole contraption in. remove the four bolts, unplug the wires. remove the whole seat, set it upside down and remove the cable, find another one and put it in. a ford dealer could have the wire or you could take both broken parts of the old one to a fabrication shop and ask them to make you one. failing all that, call around to junkyards, find a used seat, buy it and take the cable off and transfer it to your seat, put some chain lube on all moving parts and bolt it back in. ta da

The passenger side window, something broke down in the door, the motor for the power windows still works, but there is nothing holding the window up? What broke? Is it a do it yourself job to fix it?


Its the window regulator thats broke. Most are made with plastic brackets and cable. The plastic breaks and the cable goes nuts then nothing is holding the window. You need to get a regulator, if you can take the door panel off you should be able to handle installing the window regulator.

We have a 1999 Grand Cherokee Jeep. The window on the passenger side snapped, fell down and is not working. The plastic unit that holds the cables broke letting the window slam down and it jammed the gear...


If this is what I am thinking of it is called a window regulator. Which consist of a frame and the window motor. Usually they only sell this as one unit. which makes it quite a bit more expensive and most of the time the motor will work just fine.

The shifter linkage broke at the tran , its the lil plastic ball joint that broke , do i have to change the hole cable/rod r is there a way to change the plastic ball piece ??????


Call your exPontiac dealer Buicks share a lot of parts with Pontiac, call the parts department an see if they have a fix, I imagine you'll have to buy a whole new cable. You can try a bone yard but you'll end up with the same thing eventually.

FRONT PASSENGER WINDOW WILL NOT GO UP OR DOWN, BUT THE MOTOR WORKS. THE CABLE IN SIDE HAS SNAPPED. I NEED THE SCHEMATICS FOR THE INSIDE OF THE DOOR PANEL SO I CAN FIX IT.


Hi!!

I have save problem, the plastic fasteners that hold the cable get brittle and breaks, when this happens, the cable gets twisted and keeps coming off. .This is a Dealer or Junk Yard item, I went to a Pick a Part and for $30 got the whole elevator. Took door panel off, removed fastening screws, armed the whole thing on a table, slide it in, hook windows' 2 screws and that was it.

Don't forget to rate this post. Good Luck.

You will have to buy the whole window regulator assembly. Very common on alot of cars. Check ebay usually can get pretty good deals on them.

Cable broke on automatic window


If you have even basic mechanic skills this is an easy replacement. You can go to almost any online or local parts dealer and purchase the whole assembly for around $120. Remove a couple of screws from the door panel, disconnect a couple of door control connectors, slide the door panel up and remove it. Remove a few screws from the cable assembly, slide the window out of the track and support it until the new assembly is in. And so on.... The instructions are normally included with the part. It takes less than an hour to complete the job. Or.... you can take it to a shop or dealer to the tune of about $300. They will most likely have quick access to the part as it normally fails every 5-7 years. If there is a lot of demand for this solution, I can write a how to with full details.

The cable has come off the front passenger window. Can't see how it hooks back onto lifting mechanism.


I had all four of my windows do this on my 2000 bville. There is a small plastic piece that hooks to both ends of the cable and slides up and down the rail to pull the window up and down. This plastic piece broke on all four of my windows and let the cable fall. I fixed it cheap though. I took apart each door and pulled out the motor/slide/pulley assembly and wired it back together with coat hanger wire. It was a lot of work, but beat paying 160 dollars per window for new assembly (that would probably break again!)

2000 pontiac bonneville rear window cable came off


On my 2000 bville, all four of my windows came off. All four had the same problem. the upper and lower cables go around the pulleys then connect to a plastic piece connected to the track. This plastic piece breaks and lets the cable free. I fixed them all by removing motor assembly and reconnecting the cable with coat hangar wire. Kind of a redneck fix, I know, but beat paying 160 dollars per window for a new assembly that would probably break again!! Good luck!!
