Question about 2002 Mitsubishi Galant
Front left window glass moves downs only about an inch and then stops. Moves up smoothly. No bind between the glass and channels. When the glass stops after going down for about an inch motor also seems to be not trying. Initially motor seemed to try to pull down but glass wont go beyond an inch or so as if there was a bind. But now even motor stops pulling down after the glass goes down an inch.
Suspect regulator. Want brief instruction to remove regulator and install a new one. Have removed the door panel, It appears that the accesst to regulator is poor and not sure if the regulator would come out through the openings provided on inside metal sheet of the door.
My window was experiencing the same problem, although it never worked poorly, it only quit working downwards, but went up fine. The trouble was in the switch. Disassembled the switch, re-set the pegs and springs, re-assembled and now everything works fine. I assume one of the pegs simply sprung loose, and would contact the plate when "up"position, but was too far out of reach to contact for "down". If the regulator wasn't the problem, this is much easier to check. Make sure if you do disassemble the switch to keep it upside down when you do it, so as not to loose the pegs and springs within. Hope you found a solution.

I would say it is the regulator (so have a new one/or good replacement), and it will come out of the openings. once you have the bolts removed for the regulator the window should come down to a place you can remove the bolts that attach it to the regulator. After the window is unbolted side it back up and tape it up and out of the way. you will need to likly use the old motor on the new part but it just bolts to the regulator. Once you have the moter on install it in the door. Good luck

All i can suggest is removing the door (pretty simple process, usually requires a screw driver) and checking see if the switch has failed, also get a volt meter and check the window motor on that door by connecting the meter to the motor connector and seeing if its outputting.
Hope this helps! :)

You'll need to remove screws that are by the door handle, arm rest, under door and side of door and then gently pull back on the panel as there will also be retaining clips attached and you don't want to break them. If needed, you can pull back the weather seal (can't reuse it, but it's not that important) and you will be able to access everything inside the door
