Re: why does my window come off track in my 91 accord?
Could be the tracks have slipped so the window isn't guided well any more or they stick in one track and get cocked as they move up and down. You can try lubricating the window tracks with Armor All (use a Q-tip). It might be necessary to remove the interior door panel to make sure the window tracks aren't loose. There is screw at the bottom of each track that allows some adjustment. If you go to this extent, it might be worth it to remove the glass (just two screws hold it to the regulator mechanism), clean the edges and lubricate the whole length of the track.
a 6ya Mechanic can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

Pull gently on door panels(held by plastic screw/clips). Most likely, your window has jumped its holding track. Once you gently remove your clips, you'll see the tracks and place window accordingly. Not sure about electrical though(the least you could do is take a look).
take the door panel off... put the window in down position... now you should be able to work the window up with your hands and you will be able to see inside the door where the tracks are and where the window needs to go... just line it up in the tracks and let it come down into place... you will need some good adhesive or silicon in the bottom track which holds the window in place and keeps it from being able to get out of the tracks ...put the adhesive in the bottom track before you push the window all the way down into the bottom track... roll up the window all the way but do not roll it down again until the adhesive has had time to dry fully... replace door panel
If you take the door panel off which there is only 2 to 4 screws holding in on and some clips in the back. pull the window to the top of the door and tape in place pull the track up and line track up with the window fully up and make sure to tighten track bolts on both the window and door bolts. hope that helps
The window rests in a track to guide it up and down. The window will fall of this track causing the window to stay down. You can probly grab the window and pull it up but it will not stay it needs to be put back on track. You can do this by pulling off the door panel and working the window back in place and pushing the track tight agiant the window and adjusting them as need be. If this starts happing alot it will need a new window motor and regulater.
Yes. I have fixed my driver side window several times. The window went all the way down and came off the track, usually because the window automatically went all the way down. The first step was to take the interior side of the door off: (1) I unscrewed the screws around the door and pull the plastic screws out. (2) I disconnected the thin metal rod that connects the door handle to the door frame to be able to pull the interior part of the door away from the metal frame of the door. (3) I unscrewed the speaker to see where the window meets the rubber track. (4) I kept the electrical wires connected so that I could use the electric window button to lower and raise the window. (5) I lowered the window down below the rubber track and loosened the screw holding the rubber track to the door. (6) I manually adjusted the rubber track around the window glass and pressed the electric window button up slowly, making sure the glass stayed on the track. (7) I put everything back in place, screwed in the screws, etc. Be careful not to let the window go all the way down, because it seems to fall off the track at that point. Hope this helps!
