Had the same problem, it is the worm gear. Go to the junk yard and get a replacement. DO NOT BUY A NEW ASSEMBLY!!!! The ones on ebay are ****, it will work, but the window will never roll up right and you will have to push it around to get it to seal. Take off the door panel, I think it is only the one screw by the handle, it has a small cover over it. The rest is just clips that pop out around the edges. I think there are two wiring harnesses that go to the power locks/windows that you will have to unplug as well. Try to get the window motor out without removing the arms and everything, it is a nightmare to try to get aligned perfectly once you take it out. Then just get one from the junkyard, should be around $40, and plug it in. Hope this helps.

My power window will not work is there a fuse that controls all windows

There is a fuse for windows. However, if only one window is non operational, there is either a short specifically affecting that window or the motor for the window is broken.

Fix power window 2000 honda accord

new window regulator probably. theres an electric motor that has a gear that rides along a curved piece of metal with teeth on it, thats how it raises/lowers the window and the teeth at the end are probably worn. I believe only the coupes use the gear driven setup and the sedans use cables, but I am not 100% sure of that fact, but I do know for sure that the coupes use the gear driven setup.

Why is my driver side power window not working

Tough to diagnose without being there but from my experience it sure sounds like either a bad window switch or bad window motor. Using a 12 Volt test light, try to determine if either of the 2 wires at the window motor receives power when you use push the window switch. If theres power at those 2 wires when you push the switch you probably have a bad motor. If not, then your switch is probably bad. A third but less likely possibility is that the window regulator is jammed. However,
you would hear some sort of sound from the motor trying to move the glass. You said you heard nothing. Hope this helps.

Drivers side window will not roll up,passenger side works just fine there no clicking sound when you try to raise drivers side,fuses are ok

In certain Ford cars (you didn't say WHICH Ford vehicle you have), the motor that drives the power window has a plastic nut in it that facilitates the movement of the glass. Over time, this plastic nut will wear away and eventually won't turn the regulator (which makes the glass move up and down on its track). You can remove the motor, open up the casing of the motor, put in a metal nut and it will work again. I forgot the size of the nut, but they are common and can be found in a parts store for less than a dollar.

The motor on the windows make noise but the glassdoesn't move

The window actuall sits in a frame inside the door and the motor raises and lowers the frame along with the glass. The arms which connect the motor to the frame can become detached and as the motor runs only the connecting rod moves but the frame holding the window stays in place. If you can reve the interior door panel you'll see exactly what I mean. You may even be able to repair it yourself. If your hesitant about removing the door panel take it to a mechanic or dealer.

How to install driver side window regulator

1. Take door panel off by prying off with srew driver moldings for outside mirror,around lock,and door handle, then pry up counsel for power locks, windows, and mirror adjustment and disconnect plugs. Remove three screws located behind arm rest handle, inside where counsel was removed, and bottom middle of door panel. Lift panel and pull slighlty towards you. Disconnect courtesy light, and wire to speaker. This may sound like alot but it goes pretty fast. 2. Peel away plastic and loosen window glass clamps (explaination from above, which are accessable when window is in up position). 3. Disconnect wire to motor, and remove 6 bolts holding guide rails and motor. Lift rails slightly to release from little hangers, which come in handy when putting new one in. 4. You should be able to remove entire window regulator at this point. Surprisingly the window stayed in up position when regulator was removed. 5. Before installing new regulator loosen window glass clamps. Install new by first setting guides in place by using the little hangers. Bolt guides and motor, temporarily connect power window switch and carefully raise window regulator until clamps are resting in place under window glass, tighten clamps. Test before putting panel back on.

2004 Honda Element: The passenger side window won't stay up!

the motor running gear has come off the bottom of the glass, quite may be able to buy the little clips that go on the glass seperately if they are broken or you may have to buy the whole assembly.easiest thing to do at the moment is to take off the door trim and jam a piece of wood under the glass once you have raised it closed. hope this helps

Chev extend cab 2002 truck side window stuck 1/2 way down

Presumably an electric window? Stand outside truck with door open and hold the window between your palms. Gently lift the glass to a closed position while someone activates the control (with engine running). You should be able to determine if the glass is jammed (moving glass slightly backward and forward should aid movement) or if a little hellp makes the window move easily.

If the window appears jammed, it could be off the track. A repair would require removal of the door panel.

If the window appears to only require help to close, your door motor could be getting weak or some how the window track could be causing a bind.

At least you should be able to get the window closed.

good luck.

Driver side window down and won't come up??

When you push the button to raise the window, do you hear it humming or clicking, or is it dead silent? If it's silent, the motor isn't even trying to raise the window. That's either a blown fuse, a dead window regulator, or a dead window switch. If you hear it clicking or making noises, but not coming up, it's either the regulator is messed up (but not dead), or the window has come off it's guide tracks and can't raise up.

1989 ford Van passenger side power window will not raise or lower. Glass is intact, in bottom support arm, and in tracts. Motor makes sound like it is raising or lowering window but window does not move.

The problem is the power motor gear that raises and lowers the window is worn out. The motor runs, but the gear cannot engage with the gear on the window regulator.
