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.

Not off track

The window regulator is broken

Disconnect the battery any time you work on anything

Rear passenger window is stuck and wont go up or down

I've had this happen on both rear windows of my 1999 Malibu. It is the window regulator, which is a motor mounted on a track. The motor moves a guide along the track via a cable, which is strung along two wheels at either end of the track. The guide holds the window.

The weak link in all of this is the guide. A plastic piece on one side holds it to the track, but it isn't very strong. If it breaks, the guide will slip off the track under pressure (i.e., when you're rolling the window up).

You can "restring" the cable, and it might hold for a little while (held on by tension from the cable), but your best bet is to buy a new one on-line. Cost about $90. Removing the door panel is the hard part. You should be able to find a video online on how to do all this.

2003 Chevy Malibu driver's window won't work

If it is a very loud noise, then it may be the window regulator. This is the assembly that the motor and glass bolt to. The door panel would have to come off to inspect.
