Need info on replacing power window motor. Pretty shure it's bad as it makes a grinding sound at a certain poinit in its travel. already have all the panels off but noticed the screws holding the motor looks like it's hard to get to. Do I lower the window at this point?
I just replaced mine. You can leave the window up, it won't fall down. The motor is riveted on and will need to be drilled out and the new one riveted in. Use extra rivets. Easy install, just make sure that you have the motor all the way seated before you re-rivet (like I didn't at first.) Take this opportunity to raise and lower several times and grease the scissor mechanism and silicone spray the guides to resolve any current or future issues with binding etc.
My cable got tangled up and I had to replace the entire window assembly (except the glass). It was pretty easy. You take the door panels off, unplug the motor, support the glass with a prop, take out about 6 screws, and the whole track assembly including the motor came out. I bought the new assembly at Advance Auto for about $92.00. It was already put together too.

AC COMPRESSOR KICKING OFF AND ON.SOUND LIKE REFRIGERANT LOW.LOW SIDE SHOULD BE 20 - 36 PSI AND HIGH SIDE SHOULD BE 215 - 310 PSI. AC SYSTEM COULD HAVE A LEAK WHILE YOUR COOLING STOPPED. DRIVER SIDE WINDOW MOST TIME SWITCH WILL BE THE PROBLEM.REMOVE SWITCH SEE IF POWER GOING TO POWER WINDOW MOTOR.YOU HEAR WINDOW MOTOR TRYING TO WORK WHILE USING SWITCH.WINDOW REGULATOR COULD BE BINDING DAMAGED OR NEED LUBRICATING.OR MOTOR NEED REPLACED.IF POWER NOT GOING TO POWER WINDOW MOTOR THE CONTROL SWITCH IS BAD IF ITS THE ONLY SWITCH.TO TELL IF WINDOW SWITCH IS BAD SHAKE POWER WINDOW SWITCH WIRES WHILE OPERATING CONTROL SWITCH.IF POWER WINDOW WORKS YOU KNOW SWITCH IS BAD.TAKE CAR TO AC SHOP BECAUSE LET THEM CHECK AC SYSTEM BECAUSE IF YOU BUY 2 CANS OF R134 REFRIGERANT. AND YOU TRY CHARGING AC SYSTEM YOUR SELF AND ALL REFRIGERANT LEAKS OUT. YOU GOING TO BE OUT OF $30.00 STILL NO AC.THAT WHY ITS BEST TO LET SHOP PUMP DOWN AC SYSTEM CHECK FOR LEAKS BEFORE RECHARGING AC SYSTEM.
Sounds like its off the track pretty bad. Did it just happen all of a sudden? If so it would be a fuse for the power windows or the motor is bad. Try the fuse first, if the fuse is good then it might be off track but most likely the motor has gone bad. Not very costly if you DIY but it is pretty tough to replace.
sounds like you need to get you a new window regulator it comes with the motor and all and pretty simple to install to. just take the window loose from the old one and replace it with the new just watch what your doing and it will be fine.hope this has helped you!
It sounds like either your window motor is bad (gear failure), the window regulator is out of alignment or a combination of both. I'm leaning towards the motor because I had the exact same problem and it turned out that my window regulator was binding which caused the motor assembly to fail. They sell them together or separated. It's not the easiest tast to accomplish but not the hardest.
I had the same problem - driver side fine, passenger side front not working/slow or the back seat. You need to replace the window motor on the passenger side. Yes, there are two motors. It's pretty simple if you are handy with some tools. The hardest part is getting the 4 mounts that hold the window motor to the door off. The are factory riveted to the door, so I had to grind the outsides off and tap them out. Just watch the spring lever that holds the window bar for going up and down. I didn't pay attention and it snapped back - nearly broke my thumb.
