My window fell off track.  It is winter and I am strapped for cash as well :(.  I do not know much about cars, but was wondering if anybody knew specific instructions on how to get the 2002 buick century front door panel off?  Ay info would help!  I tried once, and could not figure out what to do after I removed the screw behind the door handle.
thanks and Happy Holidays!!

Remove the screw behind the door panel. where you place your hand to pull the door closed there is a small plastic cover in the bottom lift this out and there are two bolts under there, remove them. then you should use a trim removal tool to pry the plastic panel away from the door. you will have to go down both sides and across the bottom. the window lift cable end has probably broken which lets the window slide down. purchase a new window motor and regulator assembly. it simply bolts in

How do I put the driver side power window back on track and the door panel for my 2003 Nissan Altima 3.5SE?


R/R the inner door panel, slide the window back on track, reconnect the window transmission to the window, (or reinstall the trans) bolt everything back together (window motor, window trans to door etc.) Make sure the window is in the UP position. use the switch to raise the window & keep it up if all is back together before finally installing the door panel ( make sure the switch & other plugs are plugged in before the door panel is reinstalled.) Lights etc. Good luck

How to put a window back on its track in a 02 mustang


On the inside trim, you can remove screws that are by the door handle, arm rest, under door and side of door and then gently pull back on the panel as there will also be retaining clips attached and you don't want to break them. You'll need to lift the door panel upwards in order to get it off the window ledge. Then you'll need to manipulate the panel and disconnect the door handle linkage from the door handle and disconnect the wiring for your controls. Pull off the weather seal and you can readjust the window from there

Window problems electric powered off track


Unless the motors were replaced at one time, the only bolts holding the window to the regulator are at the slides. any hardware that fell apart should be inside the bottom of the door. Panel removal is pretty simple..only hidden fastener is on the edge...small reflector has one under there.
Haynes makes a good reference for that car for about $20.

Power window inop


The plastic strip in the window regulator track broke. It is replaceable by a qualified tech or if you are pretty handy. you can go to the dealer and get the strip. remove the door inner panel and expose the regulator and window by removing the clear plastic (put this back in when reassembling or you will hear alot of road noise and have trouble keeping heat in in the winter). if you can't get the part you can at least out the mindow up now and wedge something in it so you can get somewhere at least if it's raining out. When you get the parts from the dealer they can show you how it goes in as it is hard to explain but I will if you need me to. Good luck.
