Question about 2000 Saturn SL
I rolled down the power window of my car and it has got locked. Unable to close the window. pls advice how to fix it
It's the switch.
Put your fingers into the leather shifter boot at the base and feel under the rim to pop the outside ring that holds the faux wood trim at the base of the boot up and out. (The piece is faux wood on an LS2, it may just be colored plastic on an LS1) You may need to do this twice, on each side of the boot, so that the entire piece of trim and the boot pops up and out. The leather boot should still be connected to the trim, it will pop out as a unit.
Once it is out, you can reach into the housing and feel the window switch unit from inside the housing. There is a spring clip on the upper and lower ends of the switch unit, press in the spring clip and pop it up one end at a time. The unit is now out but still attached to the power. I have never unclipped the wire harness but it looks easily doable.
IF YOU ARE REMOVING THIS BECAUSE THE SWITCH IS STICKY you probably DON'T need a new switch - you can spray some contact cleaner in the ports at the side of the unit and underneath the switch, this will probably fix your problem, at least if you have ever spilled a soda anywhere near the switch.
