Question about 1997 Toyota Previa

1994 toyota previa passenger side door window repair

Someone broke into my Previa, stealing my entire life that was wrapped up inside my computer and Ipod. I have found a replacement that I pulled from "pull-a-part". I have been able to pull the window out, but I can't seem to get it to slide it into the window slot on my Previa.

Can someone please help me?

Thank You

First you have to find a special epoxy that is sold at auto paint specialty stores. It is an industrial resin epoxy made for side window installation. Second make sure you have a caulking gun because this epoxy is sold in tubes just like home caulk. Rubber gloves are essential because the epoxy will not come off, wash off it will only wear off after about a week. Next you must raise the window assembly using your up/down button. If it is a window that raises up and down of course. The reason I say this is because some vehicles have little triangle windows that are stationary. I will assume that this is a passenger window that goes up and down. Once you have raised the as-sy. you will see where the window glass is installed. You must carefully remove all bits of glass from this assembly and any glue from the factory. Take your time doing this because if you bend or stretch this piece in any way it will destroy the integrity of the assembly. After you have cleaned this out you will have to make several preparations for the next step. Once you start you cannot stop. Do a dry run - gently sliding in the glass into the glass seat. If it will not fit into the guides - sometimes you have to remove the fabric guides and under those you will see small screws that can be undone. Disassemble as little of this as possible to get the window in and on the tracks. Once you see what will be involved get ready to complete repair. Place a generous bead of the epoxy into the glass seat.
Have the window and assembly ready after this. Make sure you have figured out how to get the complete assembly in and the glass in the tracks during the dry run! Once everything is seated and the glass is in the epoxy finish all assembly and then roll the window all the way up into the guides. Make sure it is in correctly and goes up and down smoothly because once this epoxy dries you WILL NOT BE ABLE TO REVERSE THE GLASS POSITION. After all is good and you are confident it is in right - roll it all the way up and then allow it to dry for a couple of days. This is exactly how it is done at the body shops. I know because I have done this Professionally. It really isn't that hard - it is just really detail oriented and takes patience on your part. Don't get in a hurry , do the dry run, double check your work and then let it dry. Voila! you just saved yourself a couple hundred bucks! P.S. do not get curious and roll the window down before the epoxy is set or you will have destroyed your work. Good Luck!!!

Sliding passenger door will not unlock/ open

I assume you mean a 1991 Previa (that was the first year of the model). It is likely you have broken a small spring inside the door that connects the handle to the latch. The only way to tell is to remove the inner door panel (two screws: one under the door handle and one midway along the upper part of the interior door structure then pull out and up).
