Question about 1999 Chevrolet Malibu
1999 chev malibu drivers window is off track how to fix.
1. remove door panel, door latch handle and window crank unless it is electric, then remove electric control panel , usually on top of arm rest.
2, Remove insulation sound barrier (plastic sheet)
3. Inspect window for damage. If none is found, notice where the window normally slides up and down in what is called tracks. There is felt material inside the tracks.
4. Also look to see if the window has dropped out of the two crossed arms that have white plastic rollers on them. Be careful handling these arms because they are very sharp.
5. Look for small tabs holding track to door. Usually top and bottom. Loosen these screws slightly until you can move them back widening the distance between both tracks so that you will be able to slide the window back into the tracks.
6.Once the window is back in track, move the loosened track back up so its just touching the window, then retighten the screws.
7. Test window operation.
8. If the window comes off tracks again, window regular is causing problem and should be replaced.
Hope this helps.
