Window off Track 2000 honda civic

The window of my 2000 honda civic has gone of track for the second time. It cost me near $60 to fix at a repair shop and it seems to keep recurring. Is there a way to fix it at home and keep it from recurring?

    I also have the the same make and model car as you and I too have run into that exact same problem. twice. It too had cost me about as the same as what you were paying to have it fixed. we tried to fix it ourselves but couldnt do it. Finally I bought all new motors for the power windows. I was told the problem was water getting down the crack of the window and freezing inside the door. To avoid this problem I have learned to be careful not to open the window to quickly when it is cold outside. I also do not allow it to do the automatic thing it does when you push the controll all the way down.

My 2000 Honda has done it about 5 times. You can fix it fairly easy at home but unfortunately it will keep occuring until you replace the whole lifting system which is expensive! First you have to take out the screws that holds the speaker on, and 1 on the handle and 1 where you pull the door shut. Then unplug the wiring for the speaker, auto window and door locks, pop the door panel off. There are 2 bolts on the bottom of each end of the door. They hold the bracket that holds the track. Loosen whichever side is out of track (you may have to do both) and work it back in. You also may have to run the window up and down to help it back in. Hope this helps dude!

Electric window goes up crooked


Hello there patsey! I've seen this many times before. It sounds like a window track problem. The window glass rides up and down inside the trackwork channels. Those channels sometimes bend or break and cause the window to run crooked. You wont really know for sure what the exact problem is until the inner door panel is removed so you can inspect it. Best case scenario is the track bolts have come loose and just need tightening ($50-$60 repair). Worse case scenario is that the entire window track or window regulator assembly needs replacing. This can sometimes run upwards of $200 or more. BTW, removal of the door panel just to inspect it should run no more than around $30- $40. Hope this helps.

I have a 4 door 1999 honda civic . the windows are opperated by crank instead of automatic . first i believe it came off track , so we pulled up the window till i could get it fixed . that night the window...


A new pane of glass would cost around 60-80 dollars. If you take the car to a shop you could get charged another 50-100 depending on their cost per hour. You can easily take care of the matter yourself however as it is an easy fix.

2003 honda civic driver side window fall down


I am guessing you have power windows. Happens to mine sometimes.
Slam the door a couple to few times, see if that doesn't put the window back on "track". I mentioned this to the dealership a while back and they were going to charge about $90 to pop off the interior part of the door and put it back on track. They said it "builds up dirt".
I actually also toggle the window switch a few times to see if it will move slightly and then do my door slam thing a couple to few times. I seem to get this problem when it rains.
I hope it helps.

Model=CIVIC SIR. drivers electric window only goes up 1/2 way


your window has likely jumped its track......you will need to remove the door panel and inspect it further. you will find this procedure here. If it has jumped the track you should be able to get it back on with the door panel removed.
Hope this helps!

Window jumped off window track


drivers window?
the best way to fix it is to replace the window run channel (rubber the glass slides in) and the regulator. or to get by if the regulator isnt bent take the door panel off, take the door glass out, the front of the run channel inside the door is bent foreward a little bend the metal track to the rear a little by hand, careful its weak, spray the run channel with silicone spray and reinstall the glass. if the run channel is torn it wont last.
