Question about Cars & Trucks
The window regulator (the part the motor drives to lift and lower the glass) is defective in the affected doors. It is necessary to remove the door panels to replace the regulators. What is the USA model equivalent of this truck?

The motor has a pulley system that has probably come off. So the motor is working but not engaging the whole system. If you bring it in now, they can probably fix it with minimal repair. But don't count on it. I had the same problem and it cost around $175 to fix.

You need to replace the regulator inside the door. It's the little pulley system that will pull your window up and down when you push the button.
Takes about 20 minutes to fix, so you're looking at about 100.00 at the garage.

If you handy, you most likely can repair this yourself. I have had this happen on two of my Auroras. The window regulators have a nylon part that retains the cable assembly. This part gets brittle as the car ages (really under designed) and the cable end pulls through it.
I have been able to modify the retainer by removing the nylon cover and slicing a little notch to hold the end of the cable. Need a picture here to really show how it's done. In any case, a couple of hour labor and it's fixed for free.

A couple of things to add to tinyp's solution. For Buicks, the regulator is bolted in, not riveted, which makes removal easier. Also, you'd better get used to this, as I have replaced 3 out of 4 window regulators on my 2002 LeSabre.
