Question about 1991 Chevrolet Caprice

Broken window guide

The nylon guide that slides in the regulator track is broken. several years back, a parts guy at chevy dealer sold me a nylon roller (wheel) from an 80s cavalier that solved the problem at a significant savings in cash and time. I tried to order some at another chevy dealer, but the part was different with a ball and shaft pressed into the roller. the part I used was only the nylon roller, any ideas??

Is the roller removable if it is you can try a hardwear store to see if they have the wheels you can try a junk yard.

If your looking to replace them, wich is what most do today, it is cheaper to purchase a axle with new cv joints than to rebuild them. It is a very simple job in todays cars, remove tires remove lower tie rod , remove nut in center of the rotor and pull wheel assembley to the side hanging from the strut, pull axle out replace the transmission seal, push new axle in. When putting wheel assembley on, use a hydraulic jack on bottom of the rotor to push it to the axle splines and put the new nut on .

I have a 91 Caprice with the same problem. I live in Atlanta, GA. and I could not find any autoparts store selling these pieces. I eventually found them at www.clipsandfasteners.com
The part number is : A20424 GM Front Window Guides 1 13/16 total length. They come in a box of 5 pieces. Cost $4.92 for 5 pieces. I had to replace one on all of my windows. The piece is the same piece used on the back windows too. They are a trick to get in. You have do a little bending of the aluminum thing they slide into. In the end a big C-clamp works slick to get the regulator arm piece to pop into the nylon piece. Patience is needed.

My drivers side window has fallen off sideways in the door.I rolled it up and the window did close OK. What has happened and will it slide off again


Depending on the make model and year of your vehicle, you have either broken the clip at the back of the window that holds it into the track, have a broken window regulator, or Broken a guide at the bottom of the window. I would say yes, the window will fall if rolled down again until repairs have been made.

hi, it sounds like you are hearing the window motor working to turn a broken window regulator. the window regulator on your vehicle is a wire guided wheel moving two track guides up and down, affixed to the window itself. the center of the unit contains wire wrapped around a plastic roller, the most common problem is, the plastic is worn out by the metal wire and it cracks, breaks, and the wires come loose causing the window to fall. you will need to have your window regulator replaced. it's not hard for the mechanically inclined to tackle this job, but if you are not, do not attempt this repair, take it to a shop. one thing i want to tell you, from my experience as a automotive technician, i find that the aftermarket window parts(regulator, switch, motor, etc.) are inferior to factory parts from a dealer. i would recommend replacing the regulator with only factory honda parts, but you don't have to take to honda dealer to do the work.

I have a 1999 chevy silberado pickup and the drivers side window motor cables came off the track. it appeares the wires are short about 1/4 inch when trying to reinstall. what has to be done to get the...


When these braided wire cables come off track, there is usually a broken plastic part as the culprit. Either the cable rollers or the stabilizer that runs vertical saddling the bar that bolts to the inner door panel. Occasionally there are no broken parts (very rare) and with patience you can get the cable back in place. I've only been able to do this with the whole assembly out of the door & on a work bench. However, I would be willing to bet that you will need a new window regulator - available from a local dealer or salvage yard. Good luck!

It sounds like the Regulator is broken and needs to be replaced. Below is a picture of how the glass attaches to the regulator. Note the gold colored clip in the back that holds the glass to the regulator. IF the plastic piece that broke is the WHITE piece in the picture (yours may be black) then it is part of the regulator.
(the black piece in the picture is part of the glass)

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!

Replacing rear passenger window


I ended up removing the regulator, replacing the window in its track and ordering a replacement regulator.
the information provided by FixYa was helpful in getting the window back in place but the main issue was 'restringing the cables' on the regulator - apparently difficult if not impossible to do, therefore the necessity to order the new part.

REPLACIND DRIVER SIDE WINDOW REGULATOR


Pull out window crank and door handle, remove panel, remove plastic Nylon that's between metal and panel, crank the window down enough to see the arm and the part that connects with glass. Make sure the metal part inside the door that comes from an arm and attaches to glass is clean, from broken glass and the gap that attaches to window is clean,bend the new glass to make it fit inside the opening slide down the new glass from the top using opening guides, grave it from both sides standing in between and make land on top center of the part that graves the glass, put automotive glass silicone on center of that part,just at where graves the glass, let dry, put the plastic back the door panel the window crank with the "U" shaped lock washer and the door handle, I hope I was clear
