Not too sure on this one...but on most Saturns the out side door skin is removed to gain access into the door. look on the inside of the door around the perimeter for large torx screws, if there remove them, lift up the outside door handle on one side there is a plactic plug, remove plug, push handle to side and remove. remove the outer door skin. (your original question...the window crank is held on by a horseshoe clip like this...)

sounds like it is off track, you will need to remove the door panel, screws in the arm rests, one on the crank or a snap ring, and possible one in the inner middle of the door panel, once all screws and crank are off/out the take a flat tip screw driver and work around the outer of the door panel as there are like 10 plastic clips on the inside of the panel, once panel is off inspect the regulator, this is attached to the window crank, make sure the cable is not frayed or broken if so then you will need a new regulator. Hope this helps Tim

How do i replace the manual window regulator on my 93 geo tracker. i have the replacement regulator. please explain in terms of someone who has never done this before. for starters: I tried removing the...


There is a sort of U shaped clip that is behind the fat round part of the handle where it meets the door panel. You will have to push the door panel back so you can see it. You can use a small screw driver to push this clip off. Once removed you can take off the door panel. The part you are going to change is the same part the handle was attached to. All you have to do is remove the bolts holding it to the door and and slide the rollers off of the rail at the bottom of the window. Don`t drop the window. Without the regulator it could drop to the bottom of the door and break. Install the new one the same way the old one came off. It is easier than it sounds.

I have a 1997 ford explorer, and it has power seats and power windows.and the windows and seats will not move.all of the fuses have been checked and are good.


If the fuses are checked ok then there is a possibility that either driver door side main switch or the window regulator or the window motor is gone faulty.
If the windows don't work, any of several issues is likely to blame, including no electricity, bad switches, bad motor, damaged window regulator, or even a broken wire.
Automotive power windows use a switched motor to operate a mechanical window regulator. This regulator moves the pane of glass into the door.
To check and confirm the fault try this procedure:--
1) Open the fuse panel and check the fuses for disrupted elements. The fuse panel at the driver's side kick panel, or between the dashboard and the door. In some cars the fuses are mounted in the engine compartment, in front of the driver's side firewall. Check the fuses and replace if faulty.
2) 
Test the wiring harnesses from the fuse panel to the switches and from the switches to the window regulator motor. If the circuits test fine, then proceed to the next step. If a wiring harness is shorted or damaged, it will need to be replaced.3) Remove and test the switches on the driver's side door panel. Pry them up with a screwdriver and pull them free of the panel's opening. Disconnect the switch assembly from the wiring harness by pulling the adapter plug from the assembly. Test the switches individually by touching both sides of one switch with the circuit tester. Each switch will have two terminals, and if the tester is positive on both terminals while the window is activated, then the switch is good. Replace the switch assembly if any of the switches fails the test. Most power window switches come in assembled modules and cannot be replaced individually.4) Remove and test (if possible) the power window motor. Turn the armrest bolts and interior door handle screws counterclockwise, then pull the door panel free from the pop rivets. Behind the panel are a window regulator, the window glass, and the electric driver motor. The motor is usually located in the lower right section of the door. Unplug the motor from the wiring harness and unbolt it from the window regulator by turning the bolts counterclockwise. Pull the motor straight out, away from the gears. And check out if motor is receiving exact 12 volts at the terminals. If not then either motor is faulty or there is a confirm short if motor is replaced.
5) If all the above mentioned possibilities are checked out ok then the window regulator needs to be checked. Inspect the window regulator's joints for rust or stiff movement, if the electrical system is operating correctly. These joints can corrode or break, causing the window to stop working. With the door panel off, the window regulator can be removed and replaced by sliding the glass away from the track mounts, then turning all mount bolts counterclockwise and manipulating the regulator out of the door.
Thanks. keep updated for any more query.you can rate this solution and show your appreciation.

to remove the regulator ("window crank gears") Remove the glass held in with two 10mm bolts. The regulator itself is held in with six 10mm bolts. Remove these bolts and remove the regulator. (installation is reverse). Note: pay attention to the Idler arm track (highlighted in green) I think this one is directional (the front has to be at the front and the back has to be at the rear)

Pull out window crank and door handle, remove panel, remove plastic Nylon that's between metal and panel, crank the window down enough to see the arm and the part that connects with glass.

My driver's side window will now roll up how do I fix it?


most likely the window regulator has broken inside the door and will need to be replaced as well as the regulator handle. To remove them you will need a basic metric socket set, screwdrivers, and a rag or shop towel. start by moving the rag back and forth behind the window crank in order to remove the retaining clip. then once removed pull the crank from the splines of the window regulator.now undo the screw in the door handle press forward on the handle to release it from the door then undo the lock rod clip and remove the handle. there should be two large phillips head screws below the arm rest remove these. gently slide a flat bladed screwdriver under the bottom edge of the door panel. prying up to remove the retaining clips used to fasten the panel to the door. if you break the clips you can get replacements at most auto parts stores in their help section. Next lift the door panel up while lifting the bottom edge away from the door to remove the door panel. once inside the door you will need to lift the window up to gain access to the two 10 mm bolts attaching the regulator to the glass. undo the regulator retaining bracket and retaining bolts from the door. remove the regulator an assistant can be helpful to hold the glass up while you remove the regulator. installation is the reverse of removal

1990 buick centruty, driver door schematic (window regulator)


The first thing you need to do before buying any parts is to remove the door panel and find out exactly what is wrong, the motor is a gear reduction unit and even if the motor works it may still not drive the output gear. The door panel is held on by screws and hidden clips, pop off any panels or light fixtures on the door trim, under those you will find the hidden retainer screws, then gently pull door panel at edges to disengage feather style snaps.
