The window regulator is bolted or riveted to the door frame..the window is bolted to the window regulator(do that first).. once unplugged and out you can disassemble motor from regulator adn change out failed motor or failed regulator (big sissors looking metal arm system) usual problem is stripped teeth on regulator (driven gears)... if rivets held regulator you will need to change to small bolts/washers to reassemble... good luck

2006 Drivers window stuck down


If you are sure it is the switch that is bad you could just connect power directly to the motor for the window. If the window goes the wrong direction then reverse the connections to the motor.

How to remove a driver side window switch


no. the drivers switch is the MASTER switch and not like the others. if the window goes up but not down, most likely the switch. get inside the car and open the door, as you are holing the window switch down, slam the door shut a few times, sometimes this will "jar" the window motor loose if it is stuck. if it works ok now, the window motor is jamming and will need replacement. another trick is to carefully watch the dome light as you are working the switch, if you push the switch down, and the dome light dims "slightly", the switch is good and the motor is stuck.

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

Passenger Window Stuck all the way Down


Try switching the power window switch from the passenger side to the drivers side. Before you do that try with the switch on the up position, wiggle it from side to side. The contacts may be worn and by wiggling it may make contact. Other then that try to park it in side or garbage bag taped to keep rain out till you get it to the shop.
Hint, take it to a Auto window repair shop to replace the switch if it's bad or if the motor is bad. They have more experience to removing the door panels and removing the power window regulator (motor) if that needs to be replaced.
Good luck and hope this helps.

I have got a renualt clio extreme 1.2 16v 2005 year. When i got it few week later it started to give me problem which was the drivers side window. When i drve the window use 2 go down it self without me...


When it is the relay either it does not work, or get stuck half of the way, working erratically.
I do not think the relay can cause the window to go down automatically by itself.

It looks more like a contact either on the window wiring , or on the window switch, the wirings must be tested, starting from switch side, and ending on window side behind the panel.
At some point there must be a contact that with car vibration triggers the window motor.
