2000 Saturn. Why does the back window go down but not up?

The glass rides on a track, your track wire Has broken, so it can't pull the glass up......replace the entire motor assembly in the window. Do it yourself, it's easy .

The driver and passenger side windows are either off the track or the motor is defected.

You will need to remove the door panels and take a look inside to see if the window regulator is broken, the most common reason for a glass to be off track is the regulator and aslo window not moving, once inside you will see and can test for power at the motor too see if the motor is bad.

How do I realign the passenger side window?


NOTE: Window glass must be operable in order to remove door assembly carrier. Any malfunction that prevents the window (manual or power) from being lowered must be corrected before proceeding.

  • Remove door trim panel.
  • Pry out sealing plugs in door assembly carrier to gain access to window glass securing bolts.
  • Lower window until window glass securing bolts are accessible.
If the power window motor is not working it can be renmoved to allow the window to be slid down.

  • Loosen window glass securing bolts and carefully press glass securing clamps apart.
If glass is being replaced due to breakage, remove door assembly carrier and remove broken shards of glass to prevent rattling noises in door.

  • Carefully lower the window regulator.
  • Lift window glass up and pivot forward, starting at the taller end of the glass. Pivot forward towards the direction of the side mirror.
  • Place removed window glass in a secure location.

  • Slide forward part of window glass into opening and pivot glass downward, reversing the removal proceedure.
  • Raise window regulator until window glass securing bolts are visible in access holes on door assembly carrier.
  • Gently press window in the direction of the door latch or highest part of glass and tighten securing clamp bolts.
  • Remainder of installation is the reverse of disassembly.
  • Check operation of window before final installation of door trim panel.

2002 mitsubishi galant-window regular, drivers side, seems you have a very small space to remove old one, is the the only way to replace??

Once I started doing this replacement, I found it to be very simple. Once the door pannel is removed, its just a matter of removing 3 screws holding the motor, 4 holding the track and 2 holding the track to the window itself. Be sure to use a brace to hold up the glass when removing. There are only 2 wiring plugs to disconnect, just unplug....very simple...took all of 20 minutes to do. I wonder what a shop would have charged to replace....cost me 133.22 including shipping.
