Question about 1997 Honda Civic
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!

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

not weird at all,you dont use ,so its jammed up.end of story ,remove door panel and give motor a light wack with something not to heavy whilst someone hold the switch in the up position with engine running to give an bit more voltage to window motor
