The passenger side rear window stopped working. It has beeen taken apart but the wire that pulls the window up and down has all come of the grooved roller the motor still works is it possible to fix it a small piece of the plastic guide seems to have snapped off?

Re: Passeger side rear window
Replace the guide with a good one from a auto wrecker. These are cheap, poorly built cars from South Korea. The front wheel drive Pontiac LeMans was also built by Daewoo which GM owns a share of, and they had lots of problems compared to the German built Opel Kadett/ UK built Vauxhall Astra that it was based on. You get what you pay for. My advice is to find a cheap source for parts or trade it in on something more reliable.

The windows need to be re-learned.
- Park the car on level floor. Shift the gear lever to P or N. Pull up the hand brake. Start the engine.
- Sit on driver's seat. Lower the driver side window. Keep the button pressed for three to four Seconds after the window glass sits completely.
- Move up the window glass and do the same as above.
- Do the same with passenger side window glass while sitting on the passenger seat.
- Repeat the same procedure for rear windows one by one from their own buttons.
- Sit on a drivers seat and operate all the windows one by one.
If the problem persists, pull up the body diagnostic error codes with Diagnostic computer or re-learn the windows with the same machine.
You also have Circuit Breakers for your windows, Or your Master Switch ,You can Test the Driver Control Switch or the rear switches by removing the Switches and using the connector Plug and a Jump wire try jumping accross the wires,if they go up or down you could have a Bad Switch,if nothing moves more than likely your Window Motor is bad. BUT first CHECK your Circuit Breakers ,It could be Labeled as accessery Relay or circuit Breaker.
more than likely one of the switches are bad (down side of switch works but up side of switch dont) being as the switches are wired together if one goes bad other one won't work either take the switch out one of back doors should be same as front passenger door put rear switch in front passenger door if works then u know front door switch is bad if it doesn't then drivers door switch is bad u replaced window regulator Did that come with motor too??? if not check to see if motor is good there is two wires going to motor cut isolation back on wires and using some jumper wires attach one wire to positive terminal of a 12 volt battery attach other wire to negative terminal of battery window should move up or down reverse connections and window should move other way
This could be an issue with corrosion of the relay between the switch and the motor (little black box).
Sometimes the glue that holds the motor's "piston" to the window will stop working, and the "piston" will slip off the window, causing the window to stick in the down position as well. As long as your doors are apart, you might want to check that too.
For the windows to work, you may need to find a new relay, or possibly a new motor. They can burn out or have other problems in excessive heat/use/age. The GOOD news is that pretty much every salvage yard will have 4 or 5 1987-1991 Oldsmobiles sitting around, so you can steal the parts for next to nothing. Also, Buick LeSabres (also 1987-1991) are almost identical to the 88's, so you can use those for parts too!
