2003 Chevy Malibu driver's window won't work

The driver's side window of my 2003 Chevy Malibu stopped working. It comes down a few inches, then gets stuck and makes a loud noise. It won't go back up. I have to have someone push it up while I push the up button. I assume it's the motor, or is it possible that the window fell off its track? Is this something that I can repair myself? If so,
how do I fix it?

Thanks for any suggestions.

    Thank you for your information. I need to add some info since I first posted my question. Yes, the noise was loud. I think I may have made the problem worse. I would get the window down as far as the power control would take it and then I would have to pull up the window to close it , moving it back and forth and then the power switch would make it go up the last 3-4 inches. Now the window won't go up or down at all and there is no noise whatsoever. Is this something I can still repair myself?

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.

My all my power windows stop working so i bought the master switch thats on the driver side and it worked for a couple of days and then it stopped working with the same problem all the windows dont go down...


Please be more specific. Do the windows go down from their respective window control?? If the do then you may have a faulty master switch or faulty wiring damaging the master switch.

Drivers door panel removal


The book says 1. remove power accesory switch panel by using suitable flat blade tool at front. 2. Disconnet electrical connections.
3. pry door handle plug by using small flat bladed tool
4.remove door trim handle mounting screws
5. remove door trim panel from retainers.Start at rear bottom corner and pry outward.
6. remove door panel.
KD does make a tool that will properly pry the door panel away from reainers. KD 3705 You might get by with a screwdriver.
One other thing you may need to have the window down to get the panel to come off. You will have to lift up on it once it is loose from the fastners.
Hope this helps you out.

If it does not make any noise, or sound like its getting any power, most likely its the switch.

If your other windows work, then it is not a fuse. You may need to have your window motor replaced.
