Installing window


Any window,window regulator,window motor,etc
can only be accessed by removing the inner door panel

To do that You Tube Video may help you

Once in the doors interior you may have to drill out
rivets,remove nuts,move wiring & such

You almost always will get cut on the sharp door edges
so be careful & wear long sleeves,gloves don't fit well
in there but you can try

You will sometimes need pop rivit tool to replace a motor
or switch to new regulator,or you may be dealing with a
cable system

HOW DO I CHANGE THE REGULATOR FOR A REAR WINDOW ON 2000 VOLVO S80


Im not 100% sure about the rear but with the front windows i removed the panel then the foam piece. I then removed the torx screws holding the regulator from the motor itself there were three in the front windows not sure about the back. There were 4 rivits holding the regulator to the door which i had to drill out. Once i put the new regulator in i put new rivits in attatched the window to the regulator via the blue clips and put it all back together.

Window will not roll up or down


Two possible problems. Defective motor or window regulator. Remove the door panel, you will see three star screws holding in the motor. Remove the motor, remove the plate, one screw, inside the motor you should see three plastic plugs, these get old and turn to powder, to replace these you can purchase these from any automotive store for around $8.50. But I would replace these with ball bearings cost.64 each. Now you will see some aluminum plugs with rivits holding in the window regulator. To remove these you nweed to punch out the rivits, and drill out the aluminum using 1/4 drill bit. Replace these with 1/4 inch bolts and nuts. Pack the motor with wheel bearing grease and grease the window regulator. You may want to consider replacing all the regulators and checking all the motors. If one has gone bad the others will follow. Just rweplaced all 4 on my old 1996 mercury. Order the regulators on line much cheaper.

No power to rear windows


See that your fuses are okay.

Check the fuse box in the hood and under the driver side.

Electric Window motor not operating


One of two problems. Window motor or window regulator. Began by removing the door panel. Peel down the vapor barrier. This will expose the motor, you will see three star screws, remove these and then remove the motor. Remove the plate and inspect the plastic plugs in the motor, if defective replace with plugs or ball bearings, pack with wheel bearing grease. If the motor is ok. Then remove the window regulator. Using a punch punchout the rivits using a 1/4 inch drill drill out the aluminum holding in the regulator and the glass. Replacw with 1/4 inch bolts and nuts.

Schematic diagram for power window installation on regular window door ,and tools and parts needed.


Dont know if one exists. But to fix the problem, you need to remove the door panel, remove the window motor, take it apart and check the plastic plugs in the motor, if they are defecticve replace with wheel bearings and pack with wheel grease. To remove the window regulator, you will need a hammer a punch, a1/4 inch drill bit a drill. You punch out the rivits, drill out the aluminum, you replace these with 1/4 screws and locking bolts. Also grease the area where the window regulator moves up and down. Replacing the plastic plugs with ball bearings and packing with plenty of grease, you willl never have a problem with the motor ever again.
