If the motor runs, than it doesnt have to be replaced, your window is not secured to the track. those plastic pieces are what holds your window on the track. Replace those, you can get them for less than 20 bucks at the parts store

I am having trouble with my 1990 Mercury Cougar window. The power window was running and would not go down so I forced it down half way. The motor is running but nothing is moving... Since I pushed it down...


You'll have to replace the regulator/motor assembly with a new one if the mechanism was damaged, which sounds like it was. Plastic parts break on these systems. If it is snowing and you don't have the resources to replace it right now, try to tape some plastic over the window using duct tape. But, this is only a temporary solution.

Left front door window sometimes will not go back up! When I use either the left front door, window up/down switch, or the driver side up/down control, for the left front door, I can hear the switch...


USUALLY POWER WINDOW PROBLEMS ARE ONE OF THREE THINGS. 1. SWITCH 2. MOTOR 3. WINDOW REGULATOR. THE MOST COMMON PROBLEM THE LEXUS HAS IS THE MASTER SWITCH IN THE DRIVERS DOOR. IT CAN ALSO AFFECT THE OPERATION OF THE PASSENGER DOOR SWITCH....IF WINDOW REGULATOR IS BAD YOU WILL HEAR SOME CRAZY NOISES COMING OUT OF DOOR PANEL...VERY OBVIOUS.... FOLLOW THIS CLOSELY...STARE AT A LITE DOME LIGHT USUALLY WITH DOOR OPEN...WHEN YOU PRESS WINDOW SWITCH, IF THERE IS ANY DIMING OF DOME LIGHT....MOTOR IS BAD. IF DOME LIGHT STAYS THE SAME BRIGHTNESS... SWITCH IS BAD... EXCEPT IN THE CASE SOME HACKER HAS BEEN IN THE DOOR PANEL BEFORE ...IT DOES TAKE A SPECIAL TALENT TO REMOVE DOOR PANELS WITHOUT BREAKING THINGS AND EVEN MORE TALENT TO REPLACE WINDOW REGULATORS

Power window of front driver side door will not go beyond half


THis is common Too common. As I posted before.

It is broken and catching the window on the way up.

As I posted in the Passat questions.

The jetta may slightly differ.

Yes. If your window has fallen down and will not roll up.
99% Chance you car is suffering the Infamous VW plastic clip.

The door panel comes off With a T-10 torx or a Hex (Allen) wrench
that will fit and A large Philips Screw Driver..

Remove the Plastic cover on the inside Door handle.
And the Screw or Screw along the Bottom of the door panel.
Then remove the screws that hold the handle the the door.
They are located behind the Plastic plate you removed with a tiny screw driver earlier... Be careful not the mark up the cover whaytprying it up. It is best to pry from underneath. Where marks if made can not be seen

After the screws are out 4 I believe. The Use of a CLip tool ir best.
For getting behind the panel to pop it off. A screw driver will work.

After all the clips are released. Pull the light at the bottom of the panel down and out. Disconnect it ur push it back thought the hole it came from..

Now you need a 10mm socket, or wrench to remove the 12 bolts that hold the metal plate to the Door. Remove all the 10mm bolts, If the widow has not already fallen in the door. It should be released. By removing the Black 2" plugs. THe loosen the bolts that clamp the window the the arms. DO NOT LOOSEN THEM ALL the way, .
Disconect the all the wiring.. THe Door lock cable,can be a pain.
I think it pulls down,.
Next remove the Metal plate. that is the regulator.

reverse to install

1999 GMC Suburban - how to install dr side power window motor/arm


The window should be put in a closed position.
Hidden screws behind buttons of the same color as panel should be opened up using a pick or small screwdiver.
Pry the lower part of the panel away from the door using a paint scraper, The lower half of this panel is usually held in with plastic fastners. When pulled hard enough they will release. These fastners are replacable you can buy them at your local body shop. After releasing all plastic fastners lift door panel off door lock in an upward thrust. Be careful not to pull to far away from door due to wire harnesses and speaker wires ect.. These can be uncliped to remkove whole panel. To operate window you can replug window harness wires in order to bring the window into the proper position to remove bolts that hold it into place. Carefully position glass in upward position and duct tape in place.
The regulator is held in place by three or more bolts.
Remove regulator.
Compare your new part to the existing window regulator.
Installation is reversal of removal.
Any questions get back!

Driver power window problem


On my 2000 Durango, I found that the plastic cable guides had broken and fallen to the bottom of the door. This allowed the cable to lose tension which basically disconnected the window from the regulator. If you can hear the regulator motor run (power windows) when you press the window switch, then the regulator is good. Remove the door trim panel screws, pull off the door lock handle, pull the trim panel away slightly, and disconnect the plastic retainer from the door latch linkage.Then unlock the wiring connectors and remove them. Now the trim panel can be removed. Peel the plastic seal from the inner door. Now you can see inside the door and figure out what happened. A mechanic's mirror will help. Replacement window regulators are available from a number of sources; the cable and/or guides are a dealer item.
