You need a new window regulator. Some come with a new motor and some don't. Get ready to spend some money for that regulator.

Ive got a chevy tahoe 2002 and the passenger side window wont roll up all the way. When i get it up all the way it slides down about 4 inches


Assuming you have power windows. Had similar problem on 2000 Buick LaSabre. Had to replace electric motor drive assembly inside of door. The motor moves a steel cable around nylon/plastic pulleys. In time the cable cuts into the pulley. Access motor assembly by removing inner door panel. I had to purchase assembly from the dealer ($$$). Digital snapshots as you disassemble will help you reassemble. Job took about 1.5 hours, and I had never done it before.

In my 2002 toyota sequoia rear window went down unevenly and only half way. It went back up but now wont go down iat all. About a year ago had same prblem and they replaced the motor. Right now All other...


Can you hear the motor running when you ask it to lower the window? Is the fuse OK? If the motor is running then most likely the cable that lifts the window has snapped. If there is no noise and the fuse is OK then the motor is either dead or the cable has snagged it. The cable that is used to raise and lower the windows is made of steel and eventually rain water causes it to corrode through. The mechanism consists of a rail running vertically within the door that provides the location for the window clamp. This clamp is secured to the bottom edge of the window and is also attached to a cable. The cable from the top of the clamp passes up the rail, over a pulley at the top and down to the window motor drum that lies about mid way down the door. The cable winds around the drum a few times and then passes onwards to the bottom of the rail where it again goes around a pulley to make its way back up to the bottom side of the window clamp to which it is attached. When the motor drum rotates the cable is both pushed and pulled and in the process moves the window clamp either up or down the rail and closes and opens the window respectively. Sometimes if the cable has snapped it gets completely entangled in the drum and this can disable all motor movement. To fix: remove the door inner panel. Unbolt the window glass clamp and slide the glass up into the frame and tape it temporarily in place out of the way with duct tape etc. Unbolt the rail top and bottom from the dooor framing and disconnect the electric wires from the motor. Lift the assembly clear of the door. Depending on the nature of the break and method of attachment it might be possible to replace the braided cable with a suitable length from Home Depot hardware store. Play with the mechanism so that you are completely familiar with what it is trying to do and in which direction and how many times around the cable is wound onto the drum. Otherwise a visit to a breakers yard might yield the goods. If fitting a second-hand unit, liberally grease the cable to keep rust at bay and it should last a lifetime.

The cable has come off the front passenger window. Can't see how it hooks back onto lifting mechanism.


I had all four of my windows do this on my 2000 bville. There is a small plastic piece that hooks to both ends of the cable and slides up and down the rail to pull the window up and down. This plastic piece broke on all four of my windows and let the cable fall. I fixed it cheap though. I took apart each door and pulled out the motor/slide/pulley assembly and wired it back together with coat hanger wire. It was a lot of work, but beat paying 160 dollars per window for new assembly (that would probably break again!)

I have a 2001 Pontiac grand prix. My rear drivers side window wont roll up or down, When i took door panel off, i noticed a blue and red wire that has a gray plug, That seems to me should go somewhere,...


it should go to the window motor or the power locks or the power window button.
check window motor with a test light for 12 volts at the plug.
check regulator/pulley system for a broke cable.

How do you connect the power windows?


They are supposed to be connected to the motor. Does the motor run when that doors individual switch is pressed? What do the ends of wire look like, connected to something or does it have clips at ends? If motor still runs then these wires are for manipulating the rack& pulley system for operation of the window glass.........sodeep

Cable on power sliding door broken...will not operate with power...expensive fix?


We'll
speaking from one that has change SEVERAL of these. If you havent done it
before its a pain in the ****. I have done so many that I can do them in about
30 minutes. You can do it with or without the door on the vehicle.
Personally I do them with the door off. You can't fix the cable if its broke.
The cable has to slide down 2 sets of sliders and in and out of the motor
theres no tolerance for a splice anywheres. I had no idea those motor assy were
that expensive.




The way this is changed is
you remove the door. (disconnect negative on battery, or turn power slide door
button to off) Remove the panel, drop the glass down about a 1/3 the way, pull
the 2 rubber grommets off from inside the mod. Remove 2 10 mm bolts, remove the
back sash on the door and the inside rear window rail, pull the inside rubber
window run slightly out. Slide the old glass out, drop the mod down, remove the
cable assy bolts (4 10mm bolts) , unplug the wiring harness, remove the 2 10mm
bolts atop the rear slide roller, theres also one 10mm inside the door at the
very top near the rear slider. Remove that bolt too, its grey and about 1
1/4" long. You also have the remove the rear latch lock, 3 T30 torks
bolts. Unsnap the cable from the 2 retaining clips and slide the power door
assembly out the bottom of the door. Reverse assembly for the new one. Id
imagine they are charging you about $300-400 labor. Id do it for $100


lol No idea where to get a new one
reasonably tho. Its sad cause I see 1000's of them daily. Ask me how I know
this? I work in offline repair at Toyota Motor
manufacturing Indiana.

Good luck Rob







I agree,
if you don't know what your doing with the new motor your going to shell it out
quicker then you put it on. This is where the dealer comes in handy. I've
replaced a few and from I've seen they usually run around $1100-1200 without
labor
