First thing you do is take the door panel off, which pops off with a little pressure. The whole door panel comes out as a one piece, but the door handle stays on. After taking out the door panel, you will see the wire harness for the switch. You unplug this and the panel will separate from the door. There is a black plastic cover on top of the door held on by glue. Take your time to pull it off so that you don't rip it. Somewhat in the middle of the door on top of the plastic cover you will see a part of the motor with 2 bolts holding it. You will have to remove these bolts and complete taking black plastic cover off. Now, try to push the window back all the way up and get1 small hose clamp the size that the channel that the glass rides on. You might have to play with the switch on the front door to help get the window all the way back up, but to do this you will have to temporarily plug back in the rear window trim panel. Once it's up, unplug it again, while holding the window up in position. Put the clamp on and tighten. After that, drill a small hole right below clamp and put a sheet metal screw in to prevent clamp from slipping. This is the only way that you will save a lot of money, because the cost to repair this window would cost you close to $500.00. Granted, the window will stay fixed in the closed position. You can now put the door back together.

Window wont go up or down

Check fuse, try switch from other window as they do the same thing. You may need to remove the trim & power the window up manually to check motor works.

I have a 2001 Grand Am Se. My problem is my rear passenger window keeps falling (going) down, it wont stay up.

Problem with the motor, internally, this engine has a "carbon" and depegan stick when the switch is activated. For reasons of wear, could fail to raise the glass.

Take off and check it.

2002 buick lesabre. rear electric window not supposed to go all the way down but was pushe down. it is still on the track and moves when button pushed but does not go up and down properly. even if pulled...

the window regulator has to be changed indefinately if the window can be pushed either way up or down the window regulator assembly is bad . . . . in nowadays terms there is no such thing as "window off the track" if a window is not working properly there is a reason for it ;) dont forget to rate :)

I have a 2001 Pontiac grand prix. My rear drivers side window wont roll up or down, When i took door panel off, i noticed a blue and red wire that has a gray plug, That seems to me should go somewhere,...

it should go to the window motor or the power locks or the power window button.
check window motor with a test light for 12 volts at the plug.
check regulator/pulley system for a broke cable.
