1998 A6 Avant electric window problem

My OS front window will only close with manual assistance. It rises under its own power slows and then drops back down. Is it the regulator, the regulator clips or the motor?

That usually happens when you have a loose regulator , which in effect would not set the window properly.

The regulator has to be in good condition for the setting to stay as it should be,

Passenger side window roles down but won't role up.why?

Is it a power window or manual?

If it is a power window and it won't operate upward, try getting a pair of pliers to 'help' to pull it up when the switch is activated.

If it is a manual window, then maybe the window slid out of its channel, and the rivets which hold it in came out, dropping the window down.

The latter can also happen to power windows, as well.

A new regulator might be in order if the window drops down and won't go back up.

Your pinch protection is not correctly set. You can defeat the pinch protection by holding down the window lock button when you close the window. However, to "solve" the problem, you need to reset the pinch protection. My dealer charged me $100 to reset the pinch protection on my 2003 9-3 Arc.

You have a very common problem. The window rubbers get dirty and that slows the operation down, the dirt acts like "brakes" on the glass. What I do is spray 100% silicone spray down each side of the window, and run it up and down several times, then repeat. I have had very good results doing this. There is no need to remove the door panels to perform this lubrication. Nor, is there any need to lube the actual window motor assembly. This should help you out. A FixYa rating for my assistance would be appreciated.

Buick LeSabre left front window will not close

Don it. Good half day for amateur. Get Chilton 86-99 Bonneville, 88, Lesabre manuel.. Tricky to find bolts are under end flaps on door close handgrips. Took me a day to figure that one out. Others under light at lip of back of door. Book indicates to strart with window 3/4 up if you can. Flip up window control at rear of panel. After all screws are out raise outer edge of armrest and look for notches 4" and 11-1/2" from rear of armrest to slide inward to remove. There are screws under the door handle too. Screws everwhere. When pulling bottom of panel from door lift with a notched bar to avoid tearing the fasteners out of the cardboard panel. Two screws behind seatbelt notch at top need to come out to allow positioning the glass. The panel at the bottom of the top opening can be removed for more fredom in positioning the glass when reinserting the ball in the lower track on the window. Tape glass with duct tape to keep it from falling. Drill the factory rivets that hold the old regulator and I replaced with stove bolts with nylon locknuts slotted head to the inside the car. Can't remember the size, probably 1/4 or 3/16". Remove speaker if in front bottom of door to use your hand to do work in the door. You must twist the regulator forward with window 1/2 down to remove the ball from the socket in the bottom sliding metal track at the bottom of the window. Don't drop the window after removing the socket, tape it in place. Don't know what you do if you cannot move it to 1/2 up position. By the way, the body shops say you must use rivets, not screws or it will shift, but I have had no problems with the screws for reinstallation several years old. The rivet they use take a big hydraulic pop rivet gun that you won't have. Good luck, I don't envy you. Need to do other window on my 91. The window control may not be the same on the Custom, mine is the Ltd. you may be able to remove the motor from the regulator in the door without removing the regulator if you can figure out how to get the bolts that hold the moter to the regulator. inside the door.
