Window Out of Place

Recently, and stupidly amidst anger, i slammed my car door and I think I got the window out of its track because it no longer goes up or down, but the window control switch is working fine. To fix this I must remove everything on the door i presume, but how would i go about removing all of the stuff on the inside of the door?

Remove all the covers over screws then the screws, then the door panel is held on by plastic push pins and will pull off, may take allot of force..

Window motor replaced a year ago, now the window is stuck halfway. It will nudge up or down just a tiny bit, but no further

Try scrubbing the dirt out of the channels using a child's toothbrush. If that doesn't work, remove the inner door panel and check for window jumped out of track as a result of door slamming. Also be sure track mounting screw at bottom of tracks is tight and check operation with the panel off to be sure window raises and lowers smoothly without cocking in the tracks.

Driver window will not open/close

I'm thinking that the window was partially down, and your door was closed very hard. (slammed closed) This will commonly cause your window to jump out of its track. With the window out of its track, it will make the window hard to roll up, overheating your motor and causing it to thorow its safety switch, (to prevent window from busting) This will usually reset itself in 1-2 min. The window will go down easier, due to the fact the the window is helped down by the force of gravity, or it is not fully in the track at this point, so there is less friction against the window. Roll the window down as far as it will go, spread the felt weatherstripping where window seals to the door, and use a flashlight and see if you can spot the track that the window has jumped from. Sometimes you can force (but be carfull) the window back into its track, othertimes you have to remove the door panel to guide the window back in place. Your window is definatly off track or you have a very weak window motor.

Driver window will not work.

You need a small piece of aluminum foil ( like inside paper of a box of cigarette ) . Fold it somehow to become same size as the connection or a little bit biger. Put it between them. You should open the thing that make windows go up & down from the door and find the connection place. But watch to not destroy the wire. It is easy. I am not sure if I explain it enough. But it worked for me.

Sounds like scores are out in the door regulator. You can pull the door panel off following instructions on the net (on youtube) My bet is that you have screws that hold the track in place that have come loose and the window regulator is pushing it askew when it's near the top. If it's going up and down, it means the regulator is good.. You'll see at the bottom of the window the regulator typically attaches to two plastic pieces on the bottom. It's also possible that one of those screws has rusted/broken and the window is twisting out of the track near the top. My bet is the rear track rail has come loose on one of it's upper or lower screws, and the widow is not getting guided properly when it gets to the top. Really easier than you think to remove the door skin and see.

Electric window stopped working and glass is dropping

It sounds like your regulator is not functioning for one. Sounds like your window is off track for another. Perhaps the rivets that hold the track in place may have busted causing the track to not lay flat and is allowing the window to fall down. I have seen this many times. You will have to take the inside door panel off of the door and have a look. That is the only way to tell exactly what is wrong but the things I listed more than likely are at least in part the culprit. After the tract for the window breaks the regulator can not track up and down properly and it begins to jam and not function properly. It eventually jams and no longer moves. This means your window will not go up or down. This is what I think the problem is. If your glass was not dropping and it was just the window not rolling up or down anymore I would suggest looking at the regulator or the master control (lock and window buttons.) Good luck.

Passenger window- about 1/3 way down- went to close- hit power button- started up then window fell-

You need to have the power window regulator replaced. Very common in these cars. Its not an easy job. With a good service manual and some patience its not to bad.

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.

I slamed my door on accident and now the window only rolles up and down about 2 inches. What should I do or look at to fix it?

It sounds as if the window might have jumped off the track when the door slammed. You will have to take the door panel off to be able to see inside the door to determine if in fact it has jumped track.
