My bmw x3 window regulator wires broke replaced with new regulator from bmw now the lower button makes the window go up and the up button makes the window go down

Sounds like a connector block has been connected backwards. It will either be on the back of the door switch or on the regulator itself.
Which door is it on? If it is NOT the drivers door try this. Operate the switch on the door with the problem. Is the problem still there? Now operate the same window from the drivers door controls. Does the problem change? If both switch's give the same problem the issue is most likely at the actuator end. If you get a different reaction between the two controls it will be at the switch on the door you changed the actuator on.

Why isn't my right sliding door not opening or closing

If sliding door is electric, that's where I would start, check the electrical circuits for voltage and ground. If that checks out, the issue may be mechanical?
Your owners manual should give you some operational info for the sliding door.

Why won't the drivers window go down but the other three windows do

Sounds like your motor is broken. I am assuming you are talking about electric windows. It could be the cables are broke or binding but if the cables were broke then usually the window would fall down to it's resting position.

Vehicles: Any with the above symptoms.

The small popping noise was some component in the Window Operator Mechanism breaking - the cable may have snapped, a plastic pulley may have broken, a plastic cable guide may have broken - it could be anything.

The reason you can't see the Window Operator Motor or the track is that it is behind the moisture barrier - remove it by carefully peeling it back at the edges of the door frame (so that it can be re-adhered back to the same door frame location without adding adhesive/sealant).

When you get to the Operator, be prepared to have to drill out some number of aluminum rivets to remove the OEM Operator, and, when installing the new Window Operator Mechanism, you'll have to replace these rivets with your own Pop Rivets, or they can be replaced with small hardware store nuts/bolts/washers (mechanics choice). Have an assortment of both ready before you attempt your Window Operator Mechanism replacement.

If the broken component of your Driver's Door Window Operator Mechanism is actually a missing/broken rivet, then replacing that would fix the Window.
But these rivets hardly ever fail - what fails is plastic components in the Window Operator Mechanism.

I need to replace the rear passenger side window regulator in my 2001 dakota quad cab. I have taken it apart, removed the old regulator, and propped up the window

I had the same problem and found the broken lower cable guide laying in the bottom of the door. I drilled 2 holes thru the lower end of the regulator and remounted the guide with 2 screws. I then restrung the cable over the guides (not easy to do) and reinstalled the regulator in the door. It works like new.

While driving my 1996 Dodge Stratus, it was cold outside, and when I went to lower the window, the window was frozen shut and would not go down, later, apparently after the car warmed up, the window...

The reason this happened was because the window glass was frozen in place. When you operated the switch to try and lower the window the torque from the window motor caused the glass to separate from the window regulator. Once it warmed up, the glass was free to drop down in the door because the window regulator had already traveled in the down position.

Motor on the drivers window is working but window does not move at all

The cable or the window lifter guides are more then likely broken.You will need to remove the inner door trim to check the window mechanism. If the cable is broken you will get a crunching noise when you try to operate the window. The mechanism will have to be replaced.

Both manual sliding doors on my Toyota Sienna will not open

If you can remove the inner door panel you will see a maze of cables running to the various locking points on the sliding door. If the cable going to the FRONT latch on the sliding door is broken (or in my case, simply dislodged inside the door) the door acts as if it is frozen shut.

The front cable is short, and easily replaced even by a newbie mechanic.
