SOURCE: 1991 Nissan Maxima: Fix driver side window

davdancast:The problem you have described is more than likely window regulator failure and/or window motor failure where the gears in the motor have broken. 99% of the time though, it's the regulator. Nearly every automotive manufacturer has gone to this "CHEAP"!!!! design. It consists of an aluminum track which sits vertically when installed. There is a nylon runner which runs in the guide of this track and the window it self is attached by two bolts that a 10mm socket will remove. On the outskirts of the regulator is a series of nylon pulleys which a small twisted metal cable run on and the cable runs into a casing which is affixed to the inner door housing. The window motor is bolted to the regulator utilizing the same size bolts as the regulator. The failure is due to the nylon parts breaking and then the cable comes out of place, consequently the window drops to the bottom of the door.
The regulator from Nissan is rather expensive, but DOOMAN, makes one which is available from many auto parts houses at a considerable savings.
In terms of skill level? In our trade, it is listed at level "B": must have some reasonably decent mechanical aptitude. The pitfalls if you don't know what you are doing? Break the driver's door window switch: $140. = tax if you don't know how to disconnect the harness from the switch. You had better check with salvage yards on the price of door glass and interior door panels because CPR is not part of my job description and you will need it if you price new parts! The actual job isn't that difficult, but you need to take your time, read up on the subject. Go to a Barnes an Noble and pick up a Haynes shop manuel or look through a variety of other shop manuals. You don't have to buy them, just study the instructions and put the book back. If you plan on keeping your car and doing some of the work your self, go in line, you may find some deals on used shop manuals.
If I've helped you out, give the folks at FIXYA some feedback please.. Good luck and if I can be of further assistance, just ask and I'll do my best to help.
It's kind of IRONIC, the first car that I saw this design of window regulator on was in Fiats from the 1960's! Here is an interesting "SNIGLET" The old Rolls Royce cars from the 60's and back used either what was or what appeared to be bicycle chains to offer positive drive to the window lifts!

It's possible that the seal around the windshield is leaking and the water is trickling in behind the dash area where it is very difficult to see. These leaks can be very difficult to pinpoint and often I've just had to eliminate every other possibility first before finally pulling the glass to find the exact source of the leak. It's a bit of a job but if you can't find the leak then try removing the carpet, insulating pad, and seats completely from the front, dry off the floor, then have someone sit inside with a bright flashlight looking for a leak while you run water over the doors, windows, windshield, and sunroof [if equipped] and you'll most likely find the culprit. It's also a good idea to get the carpet fully dried out so it doesn't get musty and smelly plus it will eventually cause the floor to rust if left wet. Good luck, hope you find your leak!

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

The driver side window of my 2004 Nissan Maxima just slid down in the door panel. I managed to pull it all the way back up. Also, before the window fell when I pushed the switch I could hear the motor...


Your window is probably still on track but the window regulator is shot and will need to be replaced if the glass moves freely and the motor spins without moving the glass.

First check what caused the problem. If the window was hard to put up and down then clean the running rails either side move the window up and down with your hand to make sure it is moving freely then just glue the window back to the track with glue recomended for it

2003 Chevy Malibu driver's window won't work


If it is a very loud noise, then it may be the window regulator. This is the assembly that the motor and glass bolt to. The door panel would have to come off to inspect.
