I have done 100's of windows for adjustment issues, the only thing that helps is to put the bolts back to the marks on the sheet metal from there first adjustment, this is the starting point, after that it is just trial and error until you get it right, no tricks just time. Is the window regulator in good shape, no excessive wear?

How to remove broken drivers door window and install new window on 1985 Chevrolet suburban


remove the door trim, loosen of the adjustment of a window track and undo the mounting bolts for the regulator . it may come out through an opening in the door. Best get a new window assembly from the wreckers as it requires practice to get the glass back into the rubber in the regulator track. most windows are turned side ways and put in from the top and then turned back to correct position. connect track back up to regulator and reassemble

Window regulator


You start by removing the door panel, then you will have access to the whole inside of the door. There you will need to locate the motor which is usually closer to the front of the car (or near the door hinges/ speaker). You will need to find the plug to the motor and unclip it. Next you will need to remove the window (because there is never enough room to work in the small access holes that they give you) which is held onto the track by two bolts/clamps, then proceed to remove the motor which is attached to the window track section. So once you have removed the window track mechanism with the motor attached you will notice that there are rivets from the factory holding it in place . Which entails you drilling out the rivets to be able to remove the old motor, then once removed, you will need to reattach the new motor with little bolts or re-rivet it back together. Note: you need to make sure that there is no play/slop in the new motor when it is reattached or the gears will become stripped/eaten by the motor. Then reassemble working from removal to reinstalling. Be sure to check new motor by plugging it in before complete assembly, you will need to adjust it in order to reattach window and to get the mechanism back in the tracks. Take caution not to pinch your hands/arm while adjusting motor to allow lining up of window and tracks. Best of luck

Rear window wiper stopped working. It clicks when I turn it on and off. It has stalled at the mid window position. How do I remove the motor and drive assembly from the rear window.


It sounds like you have a broke window regulator. I can't give you specific instructions for your vehicle because you did not mention exactly what vehicle you are talking about. (Year, Make, Model, etc.)

Basicly, it goes like this:
Remove the door panel. Disconnect elecrical connectors as necessary.
Remove the inner moisture barrier.
Remove the bolts holding the window regulator to the glass and pull the glass up to the top of the track and use duct tape over the top of the door and down both sides of the glass to hold it in the up position.
NOTE: you may have to cut the cables to the regulator to get the glass to come up into a position where you can access the bolts.
Remove the electrical connector to the window lift motor.
Remove the bolts securing the window lift motor and the window regulator and remove the motor and regulator assembly.
Reverse procedure to install.

How do you get the driver's door latch out past the window guide?


Remove all screws around the outer edge of the door panel. Carefully pry off the decorative cover behind the door handle and remove the torix screw. Lift up firmly on the door panel to remove. To reinstall, line up molded plastic hooks on back of door panel with notches in the door, push down to secure, reinstall torix screw, decorative cover and screws.
Also before you lift away the panel, you'll need to undo the electrical connectors for the power window and door locks

It is best to get the whole power window regulator assembly from the junkyard, which includes the power window motor. Cost should be no more than $40. Remove interior door trim panel by removing all screws and pulling up on the door panel. Unbolt existing window regulator assembly and slide guides from aluminum window track (you will have to uncrimp one end of track). Installation is the reverse of removal (remember to recrimp aluminum window track after reassembly). I did this repair in 45 minutes, power window worked like new. Good Luck!

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
