It should be held in place with a screw/screws and once you have these loose you will need to disengage it from the retaining clip by moving it either backwards or forwards. There may be some rods to unclip and from there is should pull otu. It may take a tiny bit of effort. You should not have to take the door panel off to do this.

Manualy operated window on front door wont roll up or down

Kindly check the winder handle if OK. If fine you need to check the winder unit by removing the door panel. Possibly the teeth of the unit is worn out and also check the return spring.

You first have to determine if the problem is being caused by an electrical problem or a mechanical problem. To do this, the electrical circuits to the window must be tested or use other clues such as the window motor making noise when the button is pushed to eliminate the electrical circuit. If the electrical circuit is working, then the problem is mechanical and the door will have to be disassembled to find the exact cause (most likely a bad motor or broken window regulator).

How do i fix the broken cables in my drivers side window in my 2001 dodge durango

The cable cannot be fixed, it will have to be replaced, and possibly the whole winder mechanism. You have to remove the inside door panel to access the winder parts, find out what is broken and get the parts from a dealer or breakers yard.

1999 porsche boxster; when opening drivers side door with key...lock mech spins free with no resistance and door doesnt open

It sounds like it could be the plastic connecting bit that links the lock tumbler lever to the rod that operates the door lock mechanism, has broken or become disconnected. To check, you will need to remove the trim on the inside of the door, after removing any screws and the inside door lever and window winder.
Once you have the inside trim off and the plastic sheet, you will see an access hole for the door mechanism and the lock tumbler. It should be attached to the actuating rod by the aforementioned plastic bit. If plastic bit appears OK try re-attaching it or replacing it if broken. If the lever part of the lock tumbler which attaches to the rod is broken the lock will need replacing.

How do I install a new front door RH window? My parents front passenger side window was damaged. I can obtain one however, I need to install it and remove the broken glass that has fallen inside of the...

you will have to remove all the trim from inside of the door, remove the weather seal from behind the trim as well
if it has electric windows you will have to remove the winder as a unit from inside the door
remove any broken glass from inside the door, turn the replacement glass with the narrow end down and slide it down through the top opening where the window glass normally goes in the door
once it is inside the door turn it around so it is in its normal position and place it in the channels where the glass runs, connect the electric winder mechanism and replace everything in reverse order as you removed it
hope this helps

It wont be pretty but examine other rear door and be familiar with retaining fixings,ie door grab handle , window winder , and any screw fixings .
Remove what you can and maybe the rear seat also (sorry) The window winder removal is easier than you think ! It's held on by a horse shoe shaped spring clip, remove with a simple shoe lace or narrow piece of cloth pulled in the opposite direction of the horse shoe clip.(don't loose) This is about as much as I can help you , after this it's a tug and pull (against snap fixxings) upward lifting motion of the panel. Good Luck

How do I remove the window winder mechanism on the drivers side door? The window is stuck partly open and I can't seem to move it. Peter

The fault is with the regulator on the window. Remove winder and door handles. Remove door lining and reconnect window to winder rail. Reverse for reassembly

Remove window winders for mk3 Golf

hi there, it will be one of two ways, either theres a little horse shoe shaped clip that sits inbetween the winder and the door panel, failing that then the middle of the winder should flick out and there will be a screw that screws through the winder and into the panel, hope this helps
