SOURCE: gears are stripped on drivers door window crank 1999 honda civic

First you are going to have to purchase another window regulator. Then you will have to remove the door panel and all material until you can access the window regulator.

At this point I can't go further until I know if it has manuel windows or power windows, because each is an entirely different operation.

SOURCE: change window gear on 99 civic

this is from a 97 civic should be the same. remove the door panel. remove 1 screw and pull handle, remove 1 screw and plastic cover over door opener handle. remove speaker cover and three screws underneath. remover window crank. then remove the door panel (held on with plastic plugs...just pull panel toward youself).
to remove the regulator ("window crank gears") Remove the glass held in with two 10mm bolts. The regulator itself is held in with six 10mm bolts. Remove these bolts and remove the regulator. (installation is reverse). Note: pay attention to the Idler arm track (highlighted in green) I think this one is directional (the front has to be at the front and the back has to be at the rear)

SOURCE: my hyundai lantra's driver side window has become

the window winder handle has a spring "E" clip so you need to use a this blade and turn the handle till you can see one of the edges of the clip and then push the blade in against the edge of the clip to push it of. NOTE: the clip is under a little pressure so when it comes of it will try to flick of quickly so try to keep your hand around so to catch it.

Then its just the door panel clips which are around the edges of the door panel just pop these off with a good sized screw driver all the way around, some of them will be quite tight so you will need to use a little force.

When putting the window winder back on push the clip back on slightly but not all the way then push handle on slowly when it is all the way on give it a sharp bang so that the clip will lock back in place.

Hope this helps, let me know how you get on.

Drivers side window motor works but glass seems to have come lose how is it attached and can it be reattached

remove the door trim and check that the runner for the glass is not out of the regulator. If the glass has come out of the metal strip you will have to take it out of the door and replace it . Use new rubber strip (from a rubber shop and very thin) place the rubber in the metal channel and use plenty of liquid soap ( dishwashing liquid) Press the glass back in. Let it dry off for a couple of hours and re assemble in the door.

Window problems

the window motor itself has a plastic gear at the end which drives the mechanics of the window system. if you hear this grinding noise, chances are that this gear is stripped. unfortunately, this means replacing components like a motor, regulator assembly or both. the problem as you described will only get worse if not handled. it could leave you in a situation where you dont have a window at all...

Driver Power Window Won't Go Up

The window regulator has gear teeth on it that connects to a metal track attached to the window glass. The teeth are most likely stripped and the grinding noise is the motor trying to mate to the broken teeth. You need to replace the window regulator and I wouldn't hesitate to replace the motor at the same time. It's a costly fix but worth it to only have to be inside the door once and the motor will have to be removed at the same time the regulator is replaced. If you can reach the glass and pull up on it at the same time you can probably get it to roll up as a temporary fix.
