How to stop side windows running off the window guides

You may have to open the door card - the trim on the inside of the door. Do this by removing the arm rest - two screws on the underside, remove door handle - one screw on the bezel underneath the handle - and the window winder - usually just a screw holding the handle on the winder mechanism.
Carefully pry the card loose along the edges, it is clipped to the door with plastic clips. Remove the dust cover - a plastic cover stuck on with reusable glue.
Check the winder mechanism, it has probably come loose on one end. It usually works off a large half- gear which is actuated by a small pinion on the handle, unless it is an electric window.
A longish arm pushes the window up. This arm is usually mounted to a metal bar which has to be mounted on both ends of the bottom of the window glass frame. If one end wears out or becomes loose for some reason the window will do as you describe,

How to repair driver window that is stuck down

Removing rear passanger door panel on 1993 toyota camary wagon

mmmm from what i can recall 2 screws in arm rest (two small holes underneath arm rest hides the screws)take these out also one in door handle trim behind handle, And the window winder if you look close in the gap between window winder and door trim you should be able to see a curbed metal pin this holds winder in place so to remove it get a knife ( thin blade will fit in between winder and trim) and push on the end bit of the metal pin and it should spring off and then door handle can be removed. After this run your hands around door trim gently pulling around all edges ect this will pull door trim away from supports

the door inside panel is screwed on in 3 or 4 places. look on the underside of the panel for a screw or two, and look for a screw cover underneath where the inner door handle is. pop the window switch assembly out of the door gently and unplug the wiring harness from it. it is possible to repair the window winder assembly inside the door, but its too hard a process for me to explain. if u can get the door panel off, but cant figgure out how to repair the winder assembly, then buy a new window winder assembly for around $120, to replace and not repair is the standard practice anyway, cause the winders are a pain to repair, and the repair is usually only temporary, they are technically non repairable, the repair is more like a mcguyver move.

Remove window winders for mk3 Golf

hi there, it will be one of two ways, either theres a little horse shoe shaped clip that sits inbetween the winder and the door panel, failing that then the middle of the winder should flick out and there will be a screw that screws through the winder and into the panel, hope this helps
