I think the cable is molded into the little plastic piece. see if you can see the end of the cable. see if it looks like it broke, or was cut. if not, the molding came undone, and the cable pulled from the anchor in the plastic thing.

How to replace power window motor for 2003 dodge


That's unusual for a window motor to go bad, however the plastic track breaks causing the window to become inoperative. If you hear the window motor working, then the plastic geared strip is probably broken. It would be cost effective to you to first find out whether the plastic track is broken for now Chrysler sells a "generic" window track where you cut the plastic track to fit Your Vehicle. Should this be the case, then remove the door panel (a Haynes Manual would come in handy), and take out one pin in the plastic track, while supporting the Window! (smile) and remove the old track and re-install the new track.

A little secret here...buy some Mopar Speedometer Grease while buying the Window Track and grease the metal rail that the plastic track rides on. The Speedometer grease is NOT temperature sensitive, so it works well in Summer & Winter Temperatures.

Should it truly be your Window Motor, Chrysler sells a re-build kit for the Window Motor which has the gears and grease needed to replace the worn out ones in the head of the Window Motor rather than paying for a "Brand New" window motor. All of this (the plastic window track AND the Window Motor Kit), will be under $100.

I hope this helps you,
Let me know if this resolves your problem.

You don't need to go to a Merc dealer, take out the panel and have a close look at the window mechanism, it might have just pop out from the rail, if not you can get a mechanism in a motor parts shop (non genuine) with a 12 months warranty, and fit it by yourself or with some help.

How to diagnose inop right rear window in a 99 lincoln and if it is the motor, how to r & r.


The easiest way is to remove the interior door panel and take a look at the cable the moves the glass up and down. Also, there may be plastic clips that "pinch" the cable to draw it up and down. If the cable is broke or the clips are missing or broke, then that track assembly needs to be replaced. NOT THE MOTOR.

If the motor is bad, you will hear it humming or you will feel it getting hot. Gears are toast (bad). Replace the motor.

2000 bonneville, one rear cable on the left rear power window


On my 2000 bville, all four of my windows came off. All four had the same problem. the upper and lower cables go around the pulleys then connect to a plastic piece connected to the track. This plastic piece breaks and lets the cable free. I fixed them all by removing motor assembly and reconnecting the cable with coat hangar wire. Kind of a redneck fix, I know, but beat paying 160 dollars per window for a new assembly that would probably break again!! Good luck!!

Driver's side window stuck open.


unfortuanately the window has come off the track... happens for various reasons... on my windstar the side rail spot weld broke so the rail/track came off... i had to take the bracket out ... drill out the spot weld and put it back together with a rivet ... put the window back and it's been good since.... basically you will need to take the door panel off to see why it came off the track.
