1997 Honda Civic driver''s side window

I've recently been having a difficult time rolling my window down (it's a manual crank). At first, it was hard to roll up once it was close to being closed and it left a gap near the front. Then one day I rolled it down and the crankkept going but the window stopped. I have just taken the door panel off and discovered that one of the bolt heads looks smashed? I'm not sure how it got this way or even what could cause it to do this. It looks like it's been hit with a hammer at a crooked angle. So I would appreciate some advice on how to perhaps get it out and whether it can be saved. Thanks!

Sounds like a faulty connection in the switch. Replace the window switch.

the motor is attached to a regulator.The regulator is basically a pulley with cable control.Have a look and see if the cable is binding or jump off the roller

Stuck crank window, drivers side, 97 honda civic


1996-00 Civic 2-doors had a problem with the front windows binding or coming out of the run channel. The window regulator needs replaced and the rubber run channel needs inspected for damage and to make sure its properly seated into the window channels. note: make sure you install the window crank in the 10 o'clock position, so your not tempted to use the window crank as a door handle to pull the door shut. This can break the crank and/or the regulator. -Hope this helps:)

Power window switch on 2008 Civic


Roll the window down. Now hold the button to roll it up and keep holding the button even after the window stops - you may hear a faint relay click noise. It is then reprogrammed. Sometimes I have to do it two or more times because I did not hold it long enough.
