I just replaced mine on the driver's door about a month ago.  To get to it you need to remove all the screws holding the door panel on.  Two at the front edge, one in the door handle, one in the control panel for the power windows and locks.  I think there were also a couple of bolts under that panel once you have it off.  Once you get the door panel off, then you have seven bolts holding the regulator to the door.  It's alittle tricky getting it out of the door, but not too bad.

My window came off the track how do i fix it?


You will need to remove the door panel to get inside the door, when a glass comes off the track the most common reason is that the window regulator has broken, when you remove the panel you will see if the plastic wheels or clips or the cables from the regulator have broken and if this is the case then replace the regulator.this car may use a metal type regulator and if thats the case then the regulator may not be broken it may just be off the track you will need to remove the hold down screws to the glass where it holds the glass to regulator then algin the glass and then rebolt it back up to regualtor.

Driver side window fell into door, took apart and the plastic brackets broke off window. What do we need to buy to fix this? Do we have to buy the whole motor assembly or can we just buy the plastic...


It is nearly 10 years old. While it is apart get a new regulator from a parts store or ebay so you are not taking it back apart next year. Those connectors can be had at stores which sell paint and body supplies for cars, and at auto glass shops. I would pay the glass shop to remove and replace the regulator and put the door back together.

New power window regulator installed, now window goes up to top then comes back down half way and stops. How to adjust?


It is important to learn how to fix a Honda Accord window if you have an older Honda Accord. Although the Honda Accord is renowned for being a durable vehicle, the electric window motor regulators in older models can wear out over time. This is noticeable when you hear sounds coming from the window when you attempt to use it but the window won't move. But don't worry, you can use these steps to fix a broken window in your Honda Accord.

To fix a Honda Accord window, you will need:
  • A Phillips screwdriver
  • A flathead screwdriver
  • A wrench set
  • A black marker
  • Masking tape
  • A new Honda Accord electric window regulator
  1. Remove the screws securing the door panel from the inside of the vehicle. These screws are beneath the arm rest. Release the door panel by prying it away from the front of the door. Work your way back by prying off the top and sides of the panel and the back of the panel.
  2. Remove the clips holding the door panel using a flathead screwdriver to pinch them together. Remove the panel by sliding it upward and away from the door.
  3. Remove the two bolts securing the window to the regulator. Note the position where the bolts secure the windows. When you re-install the window you will need to adjust them similarly. Making a small mark on the window with a black marker is a good way to easily keep track of the correct position.
  4. Lift the window directly up and remove it from the car door. Secure it using masking tape if you prefer not to remove it completely.
  5. Remove the bolts securing the window motor and guide. Remove the window motor and guide and set them aside.
  6. Remove the regulator from the power window motor assembly. Dispose of the old regulator and install the new unit.
  7. Re-attach the window motor and guide to the door by following the removal instructions in reverse. Test the new window regulator by turning on your ignition switch and moving the window up with the electric switch.
take it back apart somethings not tight

You more than likely have a regulator (the piece holding the glass that scissors up and down) that is in a bind. Need to inspect it prior to ordering parts but I bet it is the regulator track bushing that has come apart and is binding.

Most of the time the regulator has to be replaced. if you take the door apart and take a good look at the regulator you will probably find a broken guide or fraid cable... something broken to make the cable jump off. (you may get lucky and be able to fix the old regulator...but in all the years i've been doing these i've only seen one that i was able to fix and not have to replace the regulator) Sorry I don't have a good pic of this regulator you can check with the dealer or local glass shop for an aftermarket or www.directauto.com
hope this helps

Electric window cable solution


My drivers side quit working. I took the door/window assembly apart and found that a small plastic clip had worn/broken. I modified it to hold the cable securely. The problem I had was knowing how the cables routed in the door and window assembly to put it back together. I found an online picture of a new one and routed my cables per the photo. It has not given me problems since. Time invested, about 3 hours. Cost was $0. If you buy a new one, cost is about $80 (online) and time would be about 2 hours. If you have the $$, buy a new one.

Our 2001 Kia Optima is having trouble with the passenger door. If you want to role it up it won't go up, but if you want to role it down then it just slides down. we mainly need help getting it to go down.


This actually sounds like it off track. Take the door apart and look to see if the window is on track, if its not pop it back in to place and be done with it. 9 times out of 10 its just off track. Most dealers will tell you it needs a new regulaor just to get you to buy new parts and tell you it will take 2-3 hours to fix when in all actuality it will take them 20 mins to take door frame off and pop the window back into place. I would look at this before looking into a new regulator.

Rear Passenger window won't roll up


No the only way to fix these wire regulators is replace them, they are fairly cheap, think about it, you pull the door panel, remove the regulator try to fix it and put it back, right away it fouls up, you have worked hard for nothing, replace it.
